They used to be called sponsorships; now they're ambassadorships. Regardless, the point is: If you're a local band, this is your chance to open up an Iron City Embassy and bank serious ca$h.
Iron City Sound is a contest to find the Next Big Iron City Ambassador. The current crop is a respectable bunch: 1,2,3, DJ Bonics, Kellee Maize, Bear Cub and Dream Job. Iron City is looking for one more, and you can apply online now. Once the applications are complete, public voting will begin (at the end of April). The winner will receive $5,000; duties, according to the contest website, include:
Brand Integration on Social Networks
Public Music Performances
That's right. "Brand consumption." I think you know what that means. Get on it.
