In precisely two hours the deadline will pass for you to enter the competition to find the new voice of the speaking clock.
In accordance with trying to be more confident in myself, this evening I pulled out my mobile phone and read the below script and e-mailed it to email@example.com.
I’d encourage you to do the same if ever you have sat in your car or on the toilet pretending you are the speaking clock… It will make you feel good that you’ve had a bash and been one of the 20,000 + who will also be submitting an entry (no professional voice artists or actors are allowed to enter).

I’m not going to enter this contest, but I am now going to watch, “Bringing up Baby,” with Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn! Too funny–the talking clock–I didn’t realize it was a real thing anymore. Cool! If you haven’t seen the movie you must and when you get to that scene, think of me. LOL!
Best of luck!
That sound like it would be great fun. Wonder what they would say to a Texas twang? That causes me to giggle, thinking about them expecting something British, and get my twang.
I’m sure this was only open to people in the UK but I kind of wish I had seen it on time and entered. I really should look into doing voiceover work – someone suggested it to me years ago and I never followed up. I think it’d be fun.
Oooh too late. missed it. would have loved to have entered.
