TampaBay.com has unveiled its first online video contest.
Sean Daly's Big Show Off on TampaBay.com is a fun and easy-to-enter video contest that embraces the secret talents of people who live in the Tampa Bay area. Those who can sing, dance, do card tricks or hula hoop upside down or possess any other talent are encouraged to submit a video of the performance for a chance to win $1,000.
"If you can walk on your hands, grill a perfect steak, write with your toes or sing the Star Spangled Banner backwards, it's your turn to show off," according to TampaBay.com Publisher Stephen Buckley.
Participants register for the contest and then upload a brief video. All eligible contestants (at least 18 years old and a resident of one of the following Florida counties: Pasco, Citrus, Manatee, Polk, Hernando, Sarasota, Hillsborough or Pinellas) who upload a video are automatically entered for a chance to win $1,000. The contest ends September 8, 2009.
"We see the Big Show Off as a fun way to connect with and engage Tampa Bay residents. We're giving them a platform to share their talents on the most popular local news Web site," Buckley added.
