Wanted: Social Media Week reporters for NYC

It’s almost time for Social Media Week again, and this time (from February 17th to 21st) the Web industry’s most happening event takes place in one of the world’s most happening cities – New York!

As always, there’ll be everything from inspiring master classes and keynote speeches to mind-blowing parties and chilled-out yoga sessions. And when you add to that the glitz, glamour and groove of the Big Apple, SMW NYC will definitely be an occasion not to miss. Which is why, as an official sponsor of the event, we want to give you the chance to be there, too!

Calling all storytellers

So, what do you need to do? Well, we’ll want you to be our storyteller. What we’re looking for are three Social Media Week supporters to be our eyes and ears on the ground, telling the world everything there’s to share about your incredible experience.  

Before we give you the job, we’re eager to see your super-short-video skills. If you think you have what it takes, just follow these instructions:

  1. Jump on to Vine, Instagram, or YouTube and share a video you’ve
    created showing us why you should be selected, making sure to include the
    hashtag #SMWReporter.
  2. Submit the URL to your short-form video via the competition Facebook page OR simply share your entry on Twitter including the hashtag #SMWReporter.

Every second counts

Ready with your camera steady? Then forget your worries about time limits and make the most of each millisecond. That’s what true social media reporting is all about… instantaneous, spontaneous, creative and at times downright crazy. So go insane, seize the moment, grab the chance and make some wonderful, weird and wacky waves. Make us believe that social media is your platform. Soon you might be showing that to everyone attending the SMW14!

Make haste, as there’s no time to waste. The competition closes at midnight GMT, Tuesday 4th of February.
