Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau (DMCVB) to award $10,000 for best Detroit Video Podcast that reflects its new brand. Create a video podcast to help promote the "D" and you could win. The Detroit Video Podcast Contest is part of Detroit's new Tourism Brand Identity launched by the DMCVB in January.

The Detroit video podcast must be between two to four minutes long, and the creator/s must be 18 or older. Most importantly, the podcast must creatively and positively capture at least one of these five major categories: cars, culture, gaming, music and sports. The goal of the contest is to create a video podcast that shows metro Detroit in a positive light that is intriguing and will catch the attention of the new target audience.

To enter your video podcast, complete the online registration form at visitdetroit.com and follow directions for uploading your video entry on YouTube.com by April 20, 2007. A panel of judges assembled by the DMCVB will select one winner by May 4, 2007, and that winner will be notified no later than May 18, 2007. The winning podcast will be incorporated in the Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau's marketing campaign.

just curious, since this is a podcast, is this going to end up a series of videos available for download with an rss feed? or (more likely) is this a misuse of the term 'podcast', and only one will be used in the end, to be viewed online or through a single download?

i'm always a little picky with things like this, because when used incorrectly, it's like your dad trying to be 'cool' in front of your friends, and really only ends up being the opposite. words like podcasts need to be used correctly, or you end up sounding like you're just using a buzzword to get attention with a certain crowd. granted, most people are ignorant about such things anyways, so perhaps it doesn't really matter.

otherwise, interesting idea, i'd be curious to see what people come up with.
