60 Second Pitch ContestNeed a break from the everyday?

Tune in to hear the winning pitches from our first ever 60 Second Pitch Contest here at Voices.com.

For 60 seconds, voice actors will be pitching their services, letting everyone know who they are, what they do and how their product or service can make a positive difference in the lives of others.

Three voice actors will be chosen from this group of outstanding participants as winners, but truth be told, everyone who entered the contest is better for it as the true prize is being able to confidently converse and promote your business.

The criteria being judged includes: clarity, purpose, passion, creativity and professionalism.

And the finalists for the 2007 60 Second Pitch Contest, in alphabetical order, are:

Alison Pitman, Amy Snively, Amy Taylor, Betty in Boca, Bob Green, Bryan Cox, Chuck Patterson, Doug Barron, Jason McCoy, Janice Downes, John Weeks, Karen Commins, L J Jackson, Marc Cashman, Mike Holmes, Rajiv Hasan, Robert Jadah, Thom Wilkins, Tracey Rolfe, Troy Lund and Vicki Amorose.

Prizes for the winners of the 60 Second Pitch Contest are as follows:

First Place, valued at $2500.00 includes a Five-year Premium membership subscription to Voices.com, a website optimization package, a public relations campaign, a featured article on the #1 voice over blog VOX Daily, Julie Williams' Proven Voice-Over Techniques CD, and coverage in the Biz segment on the VOX Talk Podcast along with a link on the Voices.com home page for one week.

The 2nd place winner receives a prize package valued at $1000 which includes a 3-year Premium membership subscription to Voices.com, website optimization package, a public relations campaign, the œProven Voice-Over Techniques CD courtesy of Julie Williams, and an acknowledgment on VOX Daily and VOX Talk with a link to their website.

And the 3rd place winner, with a prize valued at $500, receives a one-year Premium membership subscription to Voices.com, website optimization, a press campaign, the œProven Voice-Over Techniques CD courtesy of Julie Williams, and an acknowledgment on both VOX Daily and VOX Talk with a link to their website.

    Hi everyone,

    What did you think of the pitches? I hope they inspired you to write and record one if you haven't already.

    One tip David thought of yesterday was to feature your 60 Second Pitch demo as your primary demo on your Voices.com website. That way when people find you in the search results, they will hear a personalized message from you letting them know how you can serve them and why they should work with you.

    We were totally blown away by the quality of the pitches and creativity that went into every single one submitted for consideration.

    Thank you all very much for being a part of this contest and also a big thank you to everyone who was on the webinar with us a couple of weeks ago.

    To your success!

    Best wishes,

      Hi, Stephanie!

      Recent travel and work commitments have made me slow to respond to this announcement. First, I loved the idea of the contest from the moment that you announced it. The contest gave me reason to refine one more piece of my marketing puzzle.

      I was thrilled to discover that I had been chosen as one of the 20 finalists! I am delighted that you highlighted the 20 finalists' pitches so that we could hear them. We don't make enough time to listen to others' demos, and we certainly wouldn't know how others present themselves. Listening to the finalists' pitches is a tremendous and valuable educational opportunity.

      I am delighted to receive the publicity as a result of the contest. I know those chosen as the top 3 finalists must be elated to receive the fantastic prize packages from Voices.com!

      Like the Miss America contest, should any of the 3 be caught in an International scandal and/or unable to perform in his/her duties as the 60-Second Pitch contest winners, I, as Miss Congeniality, would be more than happy to accept their crown! :)

      Thanks again for a fabulous contest and all that you do to publicize voice actors here on the blog!
