At 2:34 AM February 17th, Felicia Day woke from a fever dream with an epiphany: Geek & Sundry needs to highlight some of the most unique, diverse and just AMAZING voices from around the Internet. Borne from her lightning bolt of greatness and prompted by our community, pro-geek and fan-driven philosophy, we’ve launched Geek & Sundry Vlogs to promote authentic talent by mentoring and supporting twenty exclusive vloggers. From comics to cosplay –and even professional thumb wrestling — our vloggers offer the best in geek from all over the world. Don’t believe us? Take a look!
It kind of gets better, if that’s possible. These lucky vloggers? They’re not vlogging for us in a vacuum. Each of the twenty vloggers will be personally mentored by Miss Felicia Day herself, as well as the extremely talented and very awesome Jenni Powell, who hails from the Lizzie Bennet Diaries. (Squee?) Vloggers will have access to marketing training, extra promotion, exclusive collaborations, opportunities for access to events, resources, and even a per-video stipend. Yeah, totally dream job, right?!
But, but … how can I be a part of Geek & Sundry Vlogs? You ask, stomping your foot in the Wonka Chocolate Factory … You’re in luck, Miss Veruca Salt. We’re accepting submissions for new vloggers all summer long!
We’re even building in a community initiative around recruiting vlogger talent!
Submissions will open on May 20th and will allow you guys to embed your videos on the Geek & Sundry Vlog site for official review and community feedback. You will have the opportunity to vote on your favorite personalities and topics to influence the programming and talent featured on the Geek & Sundry Vlogs channel! Pretty cool, right? Then, the ten community and Geek & Sundry-chosen vloggers will be announced & presented to the video community at this year’s VidCon 2013 with no small amount of fanfare. So get your cameras rolling and hit us with your best shot!
