Impersonate a
Character for Cash! A TV
Character Impression Contest Get Paid $1,000 for Your Best Character Impression From A Streaming Original

Written By – Stephen Lovely, Managing Editor | Published: May 6th, 2021

Summary:

With a year of quarantine and social distancing under your belt, you probably had more time than usual to binge-watch your favorite shows and movies. And if you’re like us, you might have spent some of your time in quarantine perfecting an impression of your favorite character.

Sound familiar? If so, we have a challenge for you!

We’re looking for your best character impression from an original show or movie produced for a streaming service. Maybe you and your significant other are “a fine pair” like Wanda and Vision from “Wandavision”? Are you familiar with “the purpose of war” like Pablo Escobar from “Narcos”? We want to give a cash prize to 3 lucky winners who are chosen by the public.

What does this contest entail?

  • Choose one character per participant (3 participant maximum) from a series or movie of your choice. The character must be from an original series or movie produced for a streaming service (Netflix, Hulu, Prime, Disney Plus, etc.)
  • Submit a 15-60 second video with your best impression of your chosen character(s)
  • After a two-week submission period, the Cordcutting.com team will choose 10 of the best character impressions to be voted on by the public.
  • If you’re chosen, ask your friends and family to vote for you! Don’t forget to tag us @cordcuttingcom and use the hashtag #ccimpressioncontest

Who can enter?

Anyone over the age of 18+ who is eligible to work in the U.S. can enter. 

Who can I impersonate?

You can choose any character from an original streaming series or movie of your choice. The character must be from an original production from a streaming service.

Keep in mind that these are video submissions only, and you’ll need some sort of monologue or dialogue. In other words, cosplay with no dialogue won’t make the cut (that’s a contest for a different day)!

Having trouble picking an original streaming show or movie? Here are a few of our favorites for inspiration: House of Cards, The Boys, Arrested Development, Ozark, You, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Queen’s Gambit, The Handmaid’s Tale, Community, Wandavision, and Bridgerton. Of course, yours doesn’t have to be on our list! It just has to be a streaming original.

What will you get if you win?

  • First place: $1,000
  • Second place: $500
  • Third place: One-year subscription to the streaming platform of your choice (approx. $150-$200)

How to Apply:

Give us some basic information and upload a 15-60 second video of your best character impression using the submission form below.

The submission period will open on May 6, 2021 at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Time, and will close on May 20, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time. We’ll then choose ten (10) of the best impressions to be voted on by the public.

The public voting period will last from May 27, 2021 at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Time, and will close on June 3, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time.
