BT has launched a campaign to find the Storytellers for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The campaign is looking to bring together an exclusive group of creative people from all walks of life to tell their story and help document the build-up to London 2012, and Games-time itself.
As a premium partner to the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad, BT is encouraging applications from a diverse cross-section who can tell their story through blogging, social networking, photography, film-making, art and graphic design, performance art, creative writing, poetry or anything in between.
Successful Storyteller applicants will have the opportunity to interact with the people directly involved in the Games, including athletes, officials and celebs, as well as having the chance to attend events and gain access to both the sports and cultural side of London 2012.
This is an excellent opportunity for enthusiastic and talented people to raise the profile of their work and help deliver history in real-time as they tell the story of the biggest sporting and cultural event of our time.
Content from the Storytellers will be showcased through social media, which is a key aspect of the campaign, and on the dedicated campaign website that will go live when BT Storytellers launches in July 2011. There may be additional opportunities for content to gain exposure through wider BT activity.
For more information, and to see some of the people who are already involved, please visit the website. The closing date for applications is midnight on 12th June 2011.
