FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

The Antiques Roadshow Open Call

 

Monday, February 4th, 2010

 

We all have them – old items, sitting in the attic or closet, passed down by a cousin’s cousin, estranged fathers, or a mothers, sister’s brother. We hold on to them because they are a part of our family and we hope to someday pass them along. And we all hope that their history will someday tell a story.

 

We’re ready to hear it!

 

The WGBH Lab, in partnership with PBS’s own Antiques Roadshow, wants to see your item and hear its story.

 

Showcase your piece in an original home movie or creative short film, no longer than 2 minutes. Be unique, and fun with your antique and its story. We want your video to dazzle our audience, and us as well.

 

Your reward? – How about a pair of tickets to a live taping of Antiques Roadshow this summer? From now, until the end of May, WGBH will be awarding 3 video submissions with a pair of VIP tickets to attend a live taping of an Antiques Roadshow appraisal event.

 

Additionally, your video could be chosen by Antiques Roadshow for national broadcast at a later date, to be featured on their website, or chosen as a stand alone video short to be aired on PBS stations nationwide!

 

Visit The Antiques Roadshow Open Call at http://lab.wgbh.org/open-call for submission guidelines and more information.
