Current Seeks Video Contributions


Current said Monday that it will hold a contest to solicit contributions from its viewers.

Current said it is looking for video submissions in three categories -- “Current Gigs,” which it described as “the most incredible, bizarre, or mindless jobs in the world”; “Current Soul,” or “videos on what connects people to the divine”; and “Current Fashion,” focusing on what’s in or what should be out.

All submissions must be received by May 12. More information is available on the network’s Web site (
