Our mates at the FiringSquad have just let us know about a huge "Editors Challenge" contest (sponsored by Intel) in which they have over $20k worth of cash and prizes to be dished up.
If you think you have what it takes to produce an excellent article or video production then you should definitely get involved with this.
Topics can be anything gaming or hardware-related. So far we have 20 entries for the written portion, which is not bad considering this is only the 2nd day of the first preliminary round. There are 5 days to go for this 1st prelim, and then another preliminary round before we start making the cuts for round 2.
Santa Monica, CA, February 6th 2007-Popular gaming website FiringSquad.com announced today the first ever writing and video contest for a technology or video game website. The FiringSquad Editors Challenge, sponsored by the Intel® Core ™ 2 Extreme processor, invites all aspiring video game and IT journalists and videographers to come and show off their creative chops and win cash, prizes, and ultimately an opportunity to break into the field of journalism.
