CRN is proud to present its first ever Channel's Got Talent (CGT) competition, which is set to coincide with the 20th CRN Channel Awards this November.
Staff at resellers, distributors and vendors alike are invited to enter the social media-based competition, which will see video entries judged by the channel via CRN's website, and social media pages including Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
Singers, bands, dancers, magicians, dancing animals, contortionists and every other kind of act in between are welcome to enter.
The winner of the competition will be given their very own five-minute slot at CRN's Channel Awards on 14 November.
Individual staff or teams are able to submit entries, which must adhere to the below formatting criteria and be received by CRN by 14 September.
Sara Yirrell, editor of CRN, said: "There is a lot of hidden talent in the channel and we are determined to weed it out! The number of companies that submitted Harlem Shake or Gangnam Style videos recently, and the number of hits these videos received, shows there is an appetite for both performing and watching these clips.
"What better time to launch than at the 20th anniversary of the Channel Awards, in a climate where we could all do with some cheering up?
"We hope as many people as possible will enter and show their talent off to their peers. With a five-minute performance at the Channel Awards as the main prize - it will probably be one of the biggest, if not the biggest audience they will play."

Video entries must be submitted to [email protected] by 14 September 2013 and must be between two and five minutes long. For further information, please contact Hannah Breeze.
