N’Sup got an email the other day from Michael Williams of Jawbone:
I’m a big comedy fan and used to go to shows all the time when I was at Vanderbilt. Since graduating, I’ve moved out west working for a start up called Jawbone.
Last week we launched a $10,000 grand prize ‘Funny Video’ contest and I’m reaching out to a few of the comedy blogs I follow. If you know of anyone in the Nashville comedy network who likes creating videos and would want to participate in a user generated video, then please please spread the word. We’re only expecting a little over 100 entries so chances of winning 10K or other cash prizes is pretty high (let alone a good portfolio building exercise).
Submission window closes June 1st
I’m a huge fan of giving comics a vehicle to express themselves + win some cash… my bro used to be a comic as well (and also went to Vandy).
The contest should be fun–please feel free to use Twitter/FB/ etc. and hopefully someone from NashVegas wins the prize. J
So, start being funny and catch it on tape. When you win the big prize, don’t forget to tip your web staff.
