Australia’s Next Tech Blogger

Your chance to join the EFTM Team - and be part of CES 2018!

In January 2018, the best and brightest Technology Journalists from around the world will descend on Las Vegas Nevada for the Annual CES tech extravaganza. EFTM will be there too.

We’re looking for a 6th wheel, someone new to join our crew and help us pump out Australia’s most extensive coverage of Tech’s biggest show.

You’ll be given your own beat, a chance to get to some of the biggest brand press conferences, and to some of the smallest events in Las Vegas.

You’ll get to wear your shoes out, eat one maybe two meals a day, and sleep for 4-5 hours per day – at most.

Good news though, our mates at Belkin are going to make sure your devices are charged and protected every step of the way.

It’s bloody hard work, but it’s the most amazing City in the world, it’s the biggest tech show on the planet and we have a whole lot of fun along the way.

This is not a holiday, it’s a chance to show yourself off to the world as a great writer, lover of technology and who knows what the future might hold!

The winner will receive return economy class airfares flying Virgin Australia to the USA, as well as Accommodation (roomies with Geoff!) in Las Vegas and $1,000 spending money – go nuts (your shout for In ‘n Out!) – plus the crew at Belkin will supply a bundle of Belkin goodies to be your ultimate accessory wingman.

How to enter:
This competition will take place in two parts. The first is a set of written submissions. The second is a trial run where we will judge our finalists on their ability to work under pressure!

Round 1: Submit three stories for EFTM. These should be articles about gadgets or announcements we have not yet covered. They should follow the same tone and style as existing EFTM content. We are looking for a TECH Blogger for CES, so the articles should fall into our Tech category.

Submissions should be in WORD format, with Images included within the article as they would appear – a feature image should be chosen and placed at the top of the article before the headline.
