Hey guys, this is Victoria ~ !



Today, I want to tell you all about the new Crunchyroll Ambassador Program!

First announced this past weekend at FanimeCon 2012, the Crunchyroll Ambassador Program is aimed at top level cosplayers, videographers, industry professionals, anime review bloggers, photographers, writers, and all sorts of other passionately active otaku.



100* (one hundred) applicants in all will initially be selected to become a Crunchyroll Ambassador and will be prominently featured on Crunchyroll.com, as well as get a chance to participate in high profile campaigns and anime-related events (see details below).

Being a Crunchyroll Ambassador means :

• Receiving a FREE 90 day Premium Membership used to watch, discuss, and share your favorite titles ~ !

EARN CASH for sign-ups ~ ! With our Crunchyroll Affiliate program, you earn $5.00 for every new Crunchyroll Premium Member sign-up you claim.

• You are now officially recognized by Crunchyroll! We will feature your COSPLAY or PHOTOGRAPHY or VIDEOS or REVIEWS on our site using news articles, banners, Facebook, Twitter, etc.!

• Select ambassadors will be given FREE VIP ACCESS to anime conventions.

• Become a featured cosplayer at the Crunchyroll.com con booth! We will promote your presence, set up a table for you to meet/greet your fans and allow for photo opportunities ~ ! It’s your time to shine, and at the same time, you’ll be helping Crunchyroll at conventions ~ !

• Receive your own Crunchyroll Ambassador contact cards!

Your mission as a Crunchyroll Ambassador: Promote Crunchyroll using your own unique skills and outlets, with the goal of creating new Crunchyroll Anime Memberships.



How to do this:

• Wear the OFFICIAL Crunchyroll Ambassador badge on your facebook, cosplay blog, deviantART, anywhere you hang out online ~ ! This would be a small “stamp” image, to be placed in the corner of your cover photo, and watermarkered on select photographs, etc.

• Link your Crunchyroll.com account to your facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr! Watch at least ONE new or existing Crunchyroll title and write a review for our site! Not a writer, how about a video review? Also, don’t forget to tweet about it ~ !

• Wear the official Crunchyroll Ambassador’s bracelet / ribbon at Anime Conventions, and direct traffic whenever you can to the Crunchyroll booth.

• Join the Crunchyroll Ambassador’s Group on Crunchyroll.com, and submit progress photos, video-updates, and news about your upcoming projects!

• Actively engage on discussion of news articles, anime episodes, and convention pages on our site ~ !



I am really excited about our new program, and we already have great cosplayers joining the ranks as Crunchyroll Ambassadors. Cosplay greats such as PikminLink, Electric-Lady, IchigoKitty, MeepyGal, DonKanonji, and our very own IchiGogo Twins ~ !

SO, for more information on how to become a Crunchyroll Ambassador program, please check out the page below. You can also apply there as well! THANKS ~ !

Hmm, seems interesting though I have a question. You see, Im in Canada and well I have yet to notice any events to do with this sort of stuff and crunchyroll. The only thing that comes to mind is Comic con or whatever its called. Would the fact that I might be unable to attend these events mean I dont qualify as someone who can do this?

Hmm interesting. To bad CR doesn't do a booth at NDK in Denver. Since that's the only con I can usually make it to considering I have a son I need to support and those pesky college loans. And like you Mexican Kakashi I love CR reason why I'm a member for so long and promote it to as many people who love anime as I can. But yeah hopefully this program kicks off and is successful.

P.S.
We need more badge collecting contests.

So is this just for cosplayers? That's what you seem to be promoting it as, but I don't get what writing reviews has to do with cosplaying.

It's open to any kind of Otaku. Not just cosplayers.

Given that it's aimed at "top level cosplayers, videographers, industry professionals, anime review bloggers, photographers, writers, and all sorts of other passionately active otaku" you can surmise that it's not really for the average joe like us, to get the most out of this you should live in the parts of America where CR participates in conventions (or have the means to get there) and already have a large audience to market CR to, which isn't a bad thing but most of the people here don't have an audience, in fact most people that participate in any form of digital media don't have much of an audience to begin with... mostly because of the number of people participating in digital media.

Personally, I'd like to apply, but the fact that it's purpose is to market CR to more people, preference will (probably) be given to those that can get to conventions, also... you need a pre-existing audience for your media, which is hard to achieve at the best of times.

I agree with the audience part but I don't think being near CR is particularly relevant. If anything, I think it'd be more beneficial if you lived somewhere that CR doesn't frequent (ie not-California) as CR could use you as the official rep for cons in areas that they simply don't have the time, money, or desire to visit.

Anime blogger x Videographer/Photographer is probably the most ideal setup as you would likely have equipment to make quality multimedia content.
