Brian Blessed has just become a new voice of TomTom and is inviting you to try out!
TomTom's competition is open to residents of England, Scotland and Wales only.
In addition to becoming a voice of TomTom, the winner can also bag themselves a New Renault MÃ©gane CoupÃ© Cabriolet.
This is an interesting contest! We've covered TomTom before on VOX Daily and through our Videos blog (GPS voices for Darth Vader and Yoda) and are happy to spread the word about their contest to find the next "Voice of TomTom."
As Brian Blessed mentioned in the video, you'll need to record a 30 second video of yourself telling your traffic story, and post it to the wall of the TomTom Facebook Page. If you have a webcam, you can do this straight from the Facebook wall, by clicking on the video icon underneath the comment box. You'll have to 'Like' the page first.
The judges are looking for an entry that is:
à¹ Energetic and Enthusiastic
à¹ Easy to listen to
à¹ Adheres to the voice entry instructions (As per the brief given online).
Submissions must be sent in by December 2nd at 5:00 p.m. GMT. The winner will be selected by a judging panel and announced on Friday December 3rd, 2010.
