Do you have insane knowledge about a subject that you'd love to share with millions of likeminded fans? Would you love to teach the people of the internet a thing or two about something you're passionate about? Well, we're taking the best "Everything you need to know about X" articles and turning them into super-cool, polished videos that will be shared across our websites and social media pages. Not to brag, but many of our videos attract millions of views, so it's a big opportunity.
If you have a wealth of knowledge about a particular character, movie, TV show, celebrity, game, or something super niche like, say, Infinity Stones, then we'd sure love to read about it.
How To Enter
All you need to do is write an article about your chosen topic of insane knowledge and tag it with #needtoknow. To have the best chance of your article being turned into a (let's face it, probably viral) video, make sure to:
- Keep it clear and as snappy as possible. We don't want to have reams of text in the video if we can avoid it.
- Make sure to include little-known, interesting factoids on the subject — use your endless knowledge to wow us and captivate your audience.
- Choose a topic that isn't so broad that it limits your ability to cover it in one article. For example, the MCU might be a difficult choice, but Mjolnir or Asgard would be perfect topics for clear focus.
The video will include your name and Creators profile, and plug your original article, so the glory is all yours!
Examples to Get your Creativity Flowing
If you're wondering what kind of video we're looking to produce, here are a couple of examples we've done recently. When you write your article, focus on telling a story in an engaging way that you can imagine being read out loud, like these:
