SlideShare announced the winners of its The World’s Best Presentation Contest — and the results include some really amazing presentations.

World's Best Presentation Contest 2008 - SlideShare

Jeff BrenmanThe overall winner is Thirst, a presentation that brings alive the impending worldwide water shortage that’s staring at mankind. Interestingly, this presentation was created by Jeff Brenman (pictured on the right) — he also won the first prize in the last contest that SlideShare held. Indezine interviewed Jeff last year for his Shift Happens presentation.

Footnotes, a photo slide show that documents Melanie’s journey through photos of her feet, won the second prize for its novel theme while the third prize was won by a presentation about the crisis in Zimbabwe.

The judges for this contest included Guy Kawasaki, who conceptualized this entire presentation contest concept — other judges were Nancy Duarte, Garr Reynolds, and Bert Decker.

Rashmi SinhaAnd at Indezine, we have something exclusive for you — an interview with Rashmi Sinha (pictured to the left) of SlideShare. Rashmi talks about this contest, her favorite entries, and more.

The first, second and third prize winners will receive a MacBook Air, Amazon Kindle and iPod Nano respectively. Winners in each category will receive an iPod Touch.
