As part of MTV Breaks, we’re seeking the UK’s most social media savvy reporter, to join our team at this year’s MTV EMA and provide live Twitter commentary from the SSE Hydro in Glasgow on November 9th. If you fancy a shot at winning, and getting your hands on the MTVMusic account, and an industry mentor, here’s how…
How To Enter:
Using your personal Twitter account, we want you to tweet along to your favourite MTV music video, or your favourite MTV Show. You can choose which one – but make sure you’re going to have a lot to say about it. We need to see at least five tweets for the show or video, and you’ll have to hashtag them all #MTVBreaks and #SM. We want to see creative tweets that will convince us you should be our social media reporter at the EMAs, and will know how to generate the best content around…
The closing date is 19th September 2014 and you must be aged 18-26. Check out the terms and conditions for full details.
What You’ll Get
You’ll win the chance to produce live EMA coverage for our MTVMusic account. Not only will you get to work with an MTV mentor at the EMA, you’ll also get three Skype sessions with an industry mentor after the event, to help with feedback and advice to help you make it in a social media career. Plus, we’ll cover your transport and hotel to get you to the event.
Interested? Check out our top tips for social media success:
Entertain us – we’re looking for someone who’ll keep our eyes glued on their coverage and our eyes glued on the screen - all at the same time!
Get creative – this isn’t an exam hall; so don’t forget to mix it up with the freshest GIFs, MEMEs and eye catching photos.
Pay attention to detail – during the EMA, all eyes will be on your tweets. Not only are you representing MTV, but you’re also representing yourself. We need word perfect, every time.
Be a hater - critique is cool, being mean is not. Keep your tweets positive.
Use bad language – there are plenty of ways to get your point across without making it unpublishable.
Be boring – all eyes need to be on your tweets, and not anyone else’s.
And it goes without saying, all tweets are representative of the Viacom International brand, and therefore shouldn’t endorse sexism, racism, homophobia, or any political or religious bias.
So, you’ve got until September 19th to enter, so you better get going…
