Get ready for your close-up.
USA networks have launched an online search for the No. 1 character in the country _ and in return you get fame and prizes…but mostly prizes.
The Show Us Your Character Contest begins March 20 and ends April 28. Enter online at www.showusyourcharacter.com and get wacky with it. Of course, this is all just a subtle ruse to launch USA’s version of My Space. Once you get on the site, you’ll be encouraged to upload videos and pictures as well as create detailed character profiles.
Oh, yeah. Don’t forget about the contest. Fame seekers need to demonstrate why they are unique through talents, personalities, style…we could go on, but really, what’s the point?
All submissions will be reviewed by a casting agency that will whittle the field down to 30 finalists. The Grand Prize winner will be selected by a panel of NBC suits. There will also be a Viewers Choice Award.
The Grand Prize winner will be seen in a national on-air campaign on USA Network; featured on the silver screen in AMC, Cinemark and Regal Entertainment Group’s FirstLook movie pre-show and will get an exclusive Web series of his or her own, which will live on showusyourcharacter.com.
In addition, the lucky person to earn this distinction will receive a MAC G5 Quadcore Desktop with 30″ HD screen and a Sony HVR professional HD camcorder with which to create webisode greatness.
The First Prize Winner receives a Sony DCR DVD Camcorder, with an Apple Video iPod going to the Runner-Up.
The Viewer’s Choice character will win $1,000 cash.
Go, my Webbies. Bare your souls for the chance to win a fabulous prize.
