Samsung are on the search for bloggers from around the globe to report on their experiences of the Olympics this summer from the games themselves to the diverse stories and buzz that will of course be happening across London itself.
This is a rare chance to seek out and share what you are seeing of this great time in London, all participants will be uploading there reports onto the specially created blog samsungglobalblogger.com as well as of course being able to share them on their own platform. 
So how can you take part?

Samsung are asking that you record a 30 second video in English explaining why you would be the perfect choice to become an ambassador and hunt out the best stories across the city.

For a helping hand they are looking for: 
Confidence and Energy in front of the camera.
A Passion for your subject matter.
Imagination and originality.
A good sense of humour.
A social butterfly – perhaps you’re a tweeter or a blogger already?
The ability to tell a story well through spoken and written word.
The deadline for audition tapes is April 22nd at Midnight GMT.
(The Competition is open to entrants from: UK, France, Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, Belgium, Brazil, China, German, the Netherlands, Russia, Spain and Thailand).
Just head here to submit your entry.

Once all entries have been received a panel of celebrity judges will then look through the entries and pick out a selection of the best to go through the next round where the finalists will be given the task of creating a video report of how they home town is getting ready for the games. 
The celebrity panel will then be called back to pick a handful of the best to win the grand prize a fully paid trip to the 2012 Olympics in London.
How amazing would that be? 
If I haven’t convinced you enough be sure to check out Jamie Olivers video on the entry page with him saying why he loves London and why you should join the challenge. 
I would love to know if you decide to take to part – and of course I shall keep my fingers tightly crossed for you. I’m quite disappointed that ‘public’ speaking or even video speaking reduces me to a tongue tied wreck, I really do , do the written word much better. 
And too everyone taking part Good Luck.

    I could never be an ambassador either. A friend of mine will be a volunteer Olympic guide. She had three interviews to get it!

    Wow, I have to admit I am slightly jealous of the people who will be doing something for the Olympics I would love to join in somehow. x

    I’d love to do it but would be way to scared to do a video lol!

  5. Maya Russell

    I think we could just wave some flags for team GB!

    I’m really sad I missed the deadline for this because I’m going to be an ambassador for my city (Coventry) during the Olympic football this year. It would have been great to be one of their reporters 🙂

    Well as the deadline has passed I won’t be doing it!, but so looking forward to the Olympiad itself.  Just such a shame that they didn’t spread it out across the country more. Yes I know its the London Olympics, but come on we aren’t that big a country.
    I have friends who are competeing in both the Olmpics & the Paralymics representing us at Archery, so will be screaming at the TV when they get a Gold – oh & hopefully they will get a compentator who knows something about the sport too. At the Bejing Olympics we had to suffer someone who had no knowledge & kept refering to the the Gold/ Centre/Middle as bull this isn’t darts its ARCHERY!
    Good luck to everyone taking part & to all the volunteers too.

    I agree – I’m nearish to Birmingham but find not much comes even this far, and it’s not that easy to up and off to London without planning. So I  often think it about a lot of things, just spread things out more. 

    Good luck to all your friends taking part! Would love to know how they do if you fancy popping back and letting me know :). xx
