Lansdowne, VA/March 8, 2010 – VOPED, the online video platform company announced today that it has teamed up with College Media Advisers (CMA) to conduct an online video contest, NEW MEDIA, NEW YORK at the CMA 2010 Spring National College Media Convention in New York City.
The NEW MEDIA, NEW YORK contest is being launched to give students, advisers and conference participants the opportunity to submit user generated videos to the CMA website. They will also be able to utilize some of the new media tools being applied today by colleges, universities, commercial news organizations, and others to engage users and drive traffic and advertising on websites.
“Multimedia has become such an essential part of today’s journalism, which is why we’re excited about this contest with VOPED that will allow participants a venue to upload their videos. We hope all attendees go out and capture the fun of New York City, join the contest and check out the tools that VOPED is providing to make this possible,” said Laura Beth Barnes with College Media Advisers.
Contest videos will be displayed through the VOPED Embeddable Video Platform located on the CMA website. The producer who attracts the highest number of video view will receive a NEW Apple iPod™ Nano with video.

“This contest will help students and advisors understand and adapt to the new media landscape that is now becoming a necessary requirement for all reporters and journalists. Many media outlets large and small now require that their staff members carry video cameras to capture news stories in the moment and report on it later,” said David Hiltner, VP of Business Development for VOPED.
