We Need Intro Videos!

canadian blog awards introduction video blogger awardsWe were sitting around the CBA virtual office last night, trying to figure out creative ideas for intro videos for the winning blogs, when we realized that this may be something that people would like to help out with.

We need your help!  We are looking for creative videos to introduce the winning blog in each category.  The only rule is that you roughly follow the script, which is “Hello, my name is ___ from [your website, or profession] … and the winner for best _____ blog is…”  Do it yourself, or get a group together… or invite your celebrity friend of a friend to help out!

Since we do not yet know the winners, you will not be announcing them. Your video will simply introduce the winner when the big day comes.

Check out our YouTube Channel for examples like this one:

Go ahead. Pick a category, make a few versions of your video, and send it to us with “Intro Video” in the subject.

Here is the list of categories that are already spoken for, which I will update regularly as we select videos.

Best Blog
Best Professional/Career Blog

Thanks from all of us at the Canadian Blog Awards! We look forward to seeing your videos!

  1. […] CBAs have a call out to bloggers, asking for creative videographers to put together award introduction videos to go on YouTube when […]

    I loved the videos from last year, but thought it was a little anti-climatic to not have the announcer actually say the name of the winner.

    Once round two starts, would it be feasible to ask the announcers to simply say the names of all 5 candidates and then, come announcement day, just use the appropriate one?

  3. Mark says:

    And, uh, I meant to write anti-climactic. 🙂

  4. jkleiman says:

    Perhaps if we get enough people willing to make videos for us.

    Post production is really what limits that way of doing it Mark. I’d need a part time video developer for about 5 days.

  6. Blue Menu says:

    And reveal our hidden identities? Are you crazy?

  7. jkleiman says:

    yea I came up with a creative handle to hide my secret identity.

  8. saskboy says:

    Blue Menu, you can superimpose blurry boxes over your heads, or a black dot over identifying features. Be creative!

  9. dave says:

    haha. I love that video.

  10. Gabriel says:

    Oh, this is exactly what I was looking forward to doing!!! Can I do the Best Photography / Art one? 🙂

  11. saskboy says:

    If no one else has claimed it Gabriel, I think that would be fine.
    Jkleiman will have to let you know for sure.

  12. Monty Loree says:

    I’ll submit an intro video shortly.
