The WTA has a new contest going on called Challenge Your Hero. It’s complicated, time consuming, confusing and you need a video camera to do it, but the grand prize is a trip to the Year End Championships in Doha!
Here’s the lowdown:
The Web site is designed for fans to mix videos of themselves matching up to some of the greatest players in the world, such as Maria Sharapova, Ana Ivanovic, or Dinara Safina. Creators of the best videos, as determined by the Tour, will be eligible for a chance to win the grand prize – a trip for two to the year-end Sony Ericsson Championships in Doha, Qatar.
How it Works:
Visitors to ChallengeYourHero.com create a free account and login to the site
Users then upload a video of themselves playing tennis, in addition, still photos and audio can also be uploaded
The user then selects the ‘hero’ they want to challenge
The web based video mixer allows users to make cut-scene video combining their own tennis shorts with those of a pro; it also allows users to stylize video, add audio and transitions
Once a video has been completed and published, it is available for public viewing in the gallery of the site
Users can also embed the video on other sites or share it using popular social networking sites
