    57

    The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has launched its first competition to find three super-fans to become Samsung Paralympic Blogger Reporters for the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games. The three reporters will join a team of 25 Samsung Paralympic Bloggers who will record their behind-the-scenes Games-time experience to fans around the world.

    “This is the opportunity of a lifetime for established vloggers, sports journalists, film students and keen videographers,” said Craig Spence, IPC Director of Communications.

    “This is the first time we have invited non-athletes to take part in the Samsung Paralympic Bloggers, which in the past has only been open to athletes. Winners will be able to get exclusive access to athletes and venues, and experience the Games in a totally unique way.

    “We are hoping that by bringing their creativity to the Games, we will also be able to further raise the profile of Paralympic sport.”

    Winners will receive a paid trip to PyeongChang 2018 (travel, accommodation and meals included), a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and other Samsung products to record their behind-the-scenes experience.

    People can enter the competition by submitting a two-minute film by 7 January 2018, 11:59pm (CET) on https://www.paralympic.org/pyeongchang-2018/samsung-bloggers on the subject of Do What You Can’t. In the video, they should also include five things they would like to report on during the Paralympic Winter Games.

    Entrants must be available to travel to PyeongChang from 8-19 March 2018. All entrants must be aged over 18. The videos can be in English, French, Korean, Japanese or Chinese.
