Been wishing you could write for CrackBerry.com? Here's your chance!
Everybody's favorite tv show is now done for the season (and with Simon leaving you know it'll never be quite the same again), so we decided it was time to put a BlackBerry slant on idol spirit with our own CrackBerry Idol 2010 competition!
You can think of CrackBerry Idol as a very fun and very public application process to become a regular-contributing member of the CrackBerry editorial team. If you've ever thought to yourself, "I wish I could write for CrackBerry.com" or "man, I could do a way better job than Kevin or Adam on that review" or "CrackBerry needs a female writer on the site" then this is the chance you have been waiting for. The winner of CrackBerry Idol 2010 will have the opportunity to join the CrackBerry team on a paid freelance basis (1-2 articles per week - nothing too crazy so you can still keep your job, go to school, etc.). There are lots of wicked goodies along the road to being crowned the CrackBerry Idol 2010 winner, including free BlackBerry apps, accessories and phones (not to mention you'll be CrackBerry famous once your face hits the blogs) so it's definitely worth putting in your creativity, time and effort. The CrackBerry Idol winner will even get to attend the BlackBerry Developer Conference this September with the Crack team in San Francisco! The great news here is we're looking for more than one new individual to join the CrackBerry editorial team, so even if you don't win the final community vote but impress the heck out of the judges you may just find your name here on the blogs one day.
The first step on the road to becoming the CrackBerry Idol is making it through the audition round, which is now open! Get on it!! For full contest details keep reading below or jump over to the contest site at crackberryidol.com. I have a feeling we're in for a fun summer here on the blogs with this event going on. Spread the word, and good luck!
