com Launches "Become a TV Mogul" Competition
Have you ever wanted to have your own channel on TV or to become your own media mogul? London, United Kingdom, December 02, 2010 --(PR.com)-- WorldTV offers the world's leading platform for individuals and groups to create their own TV channel on the web. Now WorldTV is offering 3 lucky winners the opportunity to get their channel onto traditional TV. Using WorldTV's easy-to-use video platform, anyone can create a TV channel out of a collection of video clips. WorldTV turns those clips into a full screen linear TV channel. This includes a channel logo, EPG, and a full suite of tools for managing the channel content. If anyone has ever had the idea for a TV station, and they have the talents to run one, they now have the opportunity to show it. All that is needed is some creativity, an idea, and some great and unique content. The Prize WorldTV is offering three 1st prizes. Each prize includes the following: * The winners' channels will be professionally converted into a Boxee app - the latest connected TV platform. With a Boxee app, their channel will be viewable on the recently released Boxee Box (and millions of installed Boxee desktop clients worldwide). They will have full ownership of the app and channel, and will be able to develop it, promote it and change the content as they wish. * A Boxee Box... to see their channels on TV. * A VIP WorldTV.com package consisting of all available PRO features for 3 years. * Winners' channels, if selected, will be used in a VIP presentation to leading executives from the TV industry as an example of 'people-powered TV'. These executives directly control the channels which appear on the EPG in over 150 million homes, and have stated a strong desire to find alternatives sources of modern and progressive content for their channels. * Prominent profiling on WorldTV as a featured channel and in WorldTV's various directories To enter the competition please follow the rules below. Entry deadline is Dec 15th 2010 at midnight GMT. Entry Rules 1. Create (http://worldtv.com/create) a WorldTV channel (or adapt an existing one) that meets the following criteria: * At least 10 clips in the playlist * At least 80% of the clips are in HD. That means 720p resolution or higher. * Entrants must own the copyright in the videos themselves or have (or can realistically get) permission to use them.

before relying on these provisions. This video is a great primer on copyright. For the avoidance of doubt, competition entrants cannot use YouTube clips or other clips you find on the web unless you own the copyright in them yourself or can obtain permission to use them. * The channel is suitable for presenting in a business-like setting. * Can be in any language but it is recommended that at least 50% of the clips have English sub-titles. 2. Entrants should be capable of communicating in English. The competition will be run in English. 3. All entries must be made on this form. Any other submissions (eg by email) will be rejected. 4. No correspondence will be entered into. The Editor's decision is final. 5. Entrants must provide a working email address. 6. Entrants must be aged 16 or over, or have someone 16 or over helping them. 7. Multiple entries by an individual are allowed. Multiple entries of the same channel are not allowed. 8. This competition is run by WorldTV and is not affiliated with Boxee or any other Company. 9. WorldTV reserve the right to extend or re-open the competition if there are insufficient entries. 10. Winners will be announced on the WorldTV blog (http://worldtv.com/pages/news/) within 4 weeks of the final close of the competition. 11. WorldTV will not obtain any copyright in the entries you make but will have the right to publicize the winner and winning entry and demonstrate the channel to TV executives as indicated under 'Prizes'. 12. Clips can be hosted on any site that WorldTV supports (eg YouTube, Vimeo), but entrants must own, have permission to use, or can realistically obtain permission to use each and every clip. Winners will be required to provide the source video files for each clip following the competition. Tips * There are no specific themes WorldTV is looking for but the channel should demonstrate a 'professional TV channel concept'. The name, logo and selection of clips should all reflect its concept. * Entrants should think about what they can uniquely offer that someone else can't. It might be a hobby, profession or interest, or it might be locale based such as a TV channel for a specific town or area. Ideally it would be something that doesn't already exist on TV, or where you have a completely new spin on an existing idea. * The more professional entrants' channels look, the better. Entrants should be sure to have a great logo, and if they can make up channel idents, and present or introduce their clips, through voiceovers, on-screen graphics or video introductions, this would reflect well alongside the content they have in their channel. * Teachers are welcomed and encouraged to enter their students into the competition. * If entrants 'content includes clips from what look like major TV or film productions, and are clearly beyond 'fair use', entrants should be sure to tell WorldTV of their connection to this content in their entry. WorldTV may reject entries out of hand if they think it unlikely an entrant has, or can realistically obtain, rights to use such content. * Contact WorldTV on Facebook (http://facebook.com/worldtv) if entrants have any questions. WorldTV will be actively answering questions there throughout the competition. Enter the Competition here
