Hey, Bloody Elbow reader- have you ever wanted to be a sports social media star?
XFINITY Sports, a major supporter of SB Nation, is looking for their next social voice, and they're holding open auditions to find that very person. And it could very well be someone from BE. All you have to do is create a short video and statement letting them know why you should be running the @XFINITYSports twitter handle, and submit on the XFINITY Facebook page where the contest is being hosted. If you're chosen, you will get the opportunity to share behind-the-scenes stories and news with more than 15,000 followers from the biggest sporting events over the next year.
You can enter the contest anytime between now and February 18th. Ten semifinalists will be selected - 8 of the best submissions will go straight through, and two wild cards be chosen from a fan vote out of a total of 10 initial wild card choices. Each of the 10 semifinalists will be invited to XFINITY Live! in Philadelphia, PA, to participate in a series of challenges designed to test their social media skills. The 5 contestants who excel in their evaluations will receive the opportunity to travel to a live sporting event, hosted by an XFINITY partner.
A BElitist could actually be running a sports-based twitter account with 15,000 followers, and attending big sporting events all over the place. That sounds pretty cool. Oh yeah, and you get paid an annual salary too!
Full prizing details include:
- Unparalleled access to the country's premier sporting events
- Annual salary
- XSG Home Studio in Philadelphia apartment
- 12 months of free Comcast/XFINITY service (TV with all sports packages, internet and phone)
So go check out Facebook.com/xfinity ASAP and read the rules and regulations, in addition to downloading the application.
