NAB Show looking for “Broader-casters”


OK, it’s silly, but homemade videos are a hot fad, so the NAB Show is inviting folks to submit homemade videos for a reality content competition. And it’s a pretty good prize for the winner – a free trip to Las Vegas.

The competition, dubbed “And I’m a Broader-caster,” is produced by the NAB Show and Reality Digital, the competition will run from January 15 to March 15, 2010.

Defined by the competition creators as “one who creates, manages, buys or sells, distributes or delivers audio, video or filmed content for global consumption on any device-stationary or mobile,” the term ‘broader-caster’ applies to anyone contributing to the content lifecycle. Those interested in entering the competition must submit a 60-second video clip that includes the phrase “and I’m a broader-caster.” Participants must also include information in the video that explains what the term broader-caster means to them, as well as how that term applies to their role within the content creation, development and distribution process.

You don’t have to be a broadcaster to be a broader-caster. “And I’m a Broader-caster” is free and open to everyone. The winning video will be featured onsite and streamed online during the 2010 NAB Show. Additionally, the competition winner will receive a round-trip flight to Las Vegas (available from anywhere within the continental United States), hotel accommodations for six nights and a NAB Show Conference SMART Pass registration providing free access to all sessions, conferences, luncheons and exhibits featured at the NAB Show.

All submissions will be reviewed by a team of judges selected by NAB. For additional competition information, visit
