The OpenDNS Domain Tagging system represents the best of people-powered security: Community members from around the world work together to efficiently and accurately categorize the Internet’s content so OpenDNS users can easily allow the sites they want on their networks, and block the ones they don’t.

Join the tens of thousands of security researchers, academics, concerned parents and netizens in the OpenDNS community and get involved this month. With 2011 marking the 30th anniversary of the premiere of the movie Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, we’re inspired to bury our own Golden Tickets.

Here’s how the contest works: Vote on a domain in August and you could be lucky enough to uncover one of the 56 Golden Tickets planted in the Domain Tagging system. There’s no limit to the number of domains you vote on, so the more you vote the better your chances of finding a winner. The best part about this contest — the more domains you help categorize, the safer you’re making the Internet for millions of families, schools and businesses around the world.

Prizes include one grand prize of an OpenDNS hoodie, five awesome OpenDNS t-shirts and 50 OpenDNS coozies (the kind that are designed to keep your drink of choice cold).

The fine print
: Each Golden Ticket can be discovered only once, by one person. Winners will be notified via email after August 31, 2011 once the contest is finished.  The Golden Ticket contest starts today and ends officially on August 31. You have to be logged into your account to vote and win.

Good luck to all!  I hope you win one!  And make sure you keep all won prizes away from that mean old Mr. Slugworth. 🙂
