APPLICATIONS TO AUDITION FOR TEDXCharlotte 2017 ARE CLOSED. ANY APPLICATION THAT YOU PUT IN IS FOR A POSSIBLE 2018 EVENT.
Thank you to everyone that applied for our 2017 event.  We're reviewing applications and will be reaching out by the end of March.

Some logistics:
We hold auditions in Spring and the TEDx event is the Fall. 
Please read TED's rules for TEDx talks, which we adhere to without exception: http://www.ted.com/participate/organize-a-local-tedx-event/before-you-start/tedx-rules#h2--speakers.
Please watch What Makes a Great TED Talk (we will be using this criteria): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gSvoXJLeQU

If you have any questions, please ask us at info@tedxcharlotte.com.

Name

 
Do you live or work in the Charlotte area?

TEDxCharlotte is focused on being a local event.  We want to elevate the ideas of our local community.
 
Tell us about yourself

 
What is your idea worth sharing? Keep in mind TED Talks are not an opportunity to share your personal story but an IDEA that is worth sharing.

This is truly the most important question on this application. We're not looking for the topic you want to talk about but your IDEA. If you have questions about how you answer this, review the video we posted at the beginning of this application.
 
Now take that IDEA and condense it into one sentence or less.

We are looking for idea driven talks.  Your personal story isn't part of that idea.
 
Are there any videos of previous talks you've given online? If so, please give us some links.

 
What subjects/topics are you passionate about or are an expert in?

 
What is one word to describe your speaking style?

 
Why do you want to give a talk?

 
Why do you deserve time on stage?

 
What unique point of view do you bring?

 
We'd love to get to know you better. Please send us a link to a quick video introduction.

If you don't have one ready now, you can email the link to events@tedxcharlotte.com. Please DO NOT SEND an attached video file.  We can't attach a file to your application.  POST YOU VIDEO ONLINE AND SEND THE LINK. Thank you!
 
Thank you for filling out this audition request.  We'll get back to you in early Spring 2017.
