For a shot at the prize, contestants will have to show Canada what makes them this nation’s Biggest Country Music Fan. So, put on your director hat, grab your camcorder and prepare to showcase your originality in a 2-4 minute video.

Not only will the winner (and his or her very lucky guest) be flying to Edmonton for the 31st annual Canadian Country Music Awards, they will ALSO act as the official social media reporter! What does that mean? Oh, just tweeting…LIVE from the official John Deere green carpet!

The contest will run from Thursday August 15th to August 23, 2013, after which, the judges will choose the top ten videos and online voting will commence.  On August 30, 2013, the winner will be notified.  In September? You could be off to the CCMAs!

“And,” encourages Canada Beef, “don’t forget:  tweet your video URL along with  ‘I want @CanadianBeef to #SendMeToTheCCMA @CCMAOfficial’ to help your video get lots of votes and to warm those tweeting fingers up for your green carpet reporting duties.”

For full details and to enter, check out the CCMA Facebook page starting Thursday, August 15th.
