NEW YORK Presented exclusively by Revlon is the first-ever Red Carpet correspondent competition developed in partnership with People.com and YouTube.
The competition, which kicked off July 10 and runs through July 21, will give one YouTube and People.com user the chance to experience an assignment with exclusive access. In addition to the competition, People.com is also launching its YouTube Channel, located at www.youtube.com/people, to give fans a peek behind the curtain at exclusive People.com video, photo shoots, celebrity interviews and more.
Applicants can submit their best 2- to 4-minute videos showcasing their interviewing skills by chatting up family and friends as if they were on the Red Carpet at a Hollywood award show. For submissions and contest guidelines, visit www.youtube.com/redcarpetreporter or www.people.com/youtube.
A team of People.com editors and Red Carpet correspondents will narrow the field to 10 finalists. Finalists will product a second 2- to 4-minute video in which they will conduct spontaneous interviews in a public area. People.com and YouTube community will vote on the 10 finalist videos. The winner will be unveiled on Aug. 27 on both People.com and YouTube. The awards program will be held Sept. 21.
The grand prize winner will spend two days in Los Angeles and will receive the Red Carpet treatment, including hair and makeup by Revlon.
“At Revlon, we have a long-standing tradition of glamour and sophistication, which is a natural fit for the Red Carpet,” stated Kiki Rees, senior vice president of media and communications at Revlon. “By participating in this program with People.com and YouTube, we are giving aspiring correspondents across the nation the chance to shine and have the ultimate Red Carpet moment.”
