Live.me is one of several apps that offers a social media service based around live streams. Many of its users are creators who release videos across the web, and with a new content, Live.me will look to make a deeper connection to that community. It has announced “The Next Top Broadcasters,” a competition that will offer $500,000 in short-term contracts to its winners.
The Next Top Broadcasters, or #TNTB for short, will begin on June 23rd, which is also the first day of VidCon. Starting on that day, creators who launch new Live.me accounts and begin streaming on the app with the hashtag #LivemeStar will have the opportunity to earn virtual “diamonds” from their fans. By July 9th, the Live.me user who has earned the most diamonds will receive a one-month, $50,000 contract with Live.me. In order to reach the $500,000 total the contest promises, smaller contracts will be awarded to runners-up.
