0

After 10 seasons, 3 Primetime Emmy Awards, another 26 wins and 112 nominations, The WB Television Network hit series “Smallville” is ending its run by sponsoring an exciting competition for fan’s of the show a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be a guest star on one of the final season’s episodes.

In the episode “Beacon,” to air on February 4th 2011, Clark is at an emotional turning point, with Metropolis split by a conflict between proponents of the government’s Vigilante Registration Act and rival rallies to propagate support for intrinsic heroes like The Blur. Clark’s friends assure him that he is, indeed, making a difference in his crime-fighting role as The Blur, and to validate their point, they show him videos from the Internet in which ordinary citizens express what The Blur means to them, what it means to be a hero – and what it means to have heroes and have faith in them.

Beginning Friday, December 10, at 11:00am PST, and continuing through Monday, December 20, at 11:00am PST, “Smallville” fans can submit their own video testimonial as one of these hopeful citizens by uploading videos to The CW’s official website.

In these videos, viewers – speaking in character as impassioned citizens of Metropolis and around the world, fighting for the rights of their heroes – can express what The Blur means to them and talk about why they believe in these super heroes.

“Smallville” producers and the CWTV.com team will review the submissions and select a number of the user-submitted videos for broadcast as the testimonials that Clark watches during the “Beacon” episode airing Friday, February 4 at 8:00pm ET/PT on The CW.

In addition to selecting the winning videos to be used in the episode, the “Smallville” producers and CWTV.com team will also select a number of additional favorite videos that will be posted to CWTV.com following the broadcast.
