TEDxAsburyPark 2018 Speaker Application

Some tips for filling out this form: 

Passion is a driving force that can lead to creation (and destruction), inspiration, suffering, perseverance and service to others. It serves as the theme for our 2018 TEDxAsburyPark event, which will be held on May 19, 2018 at the Paramount Theatre on the boardwalk in Asbury Park, NJ. Thank you for submitting your concept for your Talk.

All applications will be reviewed by the TEDxAsburyPark Speaker Executive Committee. Acceptances will be offered on a rolling basis from Fall 2017 until April 1, 2018. We ask that when you submit your application that you hold May 18 and 19, 2018 in your calendar and let us know if a conflict arises.

In addition to the TEDxAsburyPark main event on May 19, 2018, we are planning to host two Open Mic nights (November 16 and January 18) plus an Open Rehearsal on April 19. You may be invited to participate in one of these events as well.

1 – Please ensure that your proposed talk clearly demonstrates a connection with the Passion theme.  Applications which don’t meet this criteria will not be considered.

2 – Have a look at the below form to see what information the submission process requires, then use your favorite word processor to prepare everything, such as descriptions for your talk, your bio, photo as well as links to your social media and portfolio material. 

3 – Keep in mind. If accepted as a speaker at TEDxAsburyPark we will produce a broadcast quality video of your talk, making it available to you, and also under a creative commons license on the web on our site, www.tedxasburypark.com, on YouTube and other video sites, and possibly on TED.com. 

4 – It helps to prepare all the needed content before starting to fill out the form. Also please have a look at this “must read” TEDx Speaker Guide.

Note that TEDxAsburyPark speakers do not receive any monetary compensation, or airfare/transportation costs that a speaker may incur.
