By now you've probably heard of the video contest that Accounting Tomorrow (ATOM) is holding with Next Generation Consulting (you know, of Rebecca Ryan fame) - ATOM's Got Talent.

That's right - we're calling CPAs of all ages to come up with a five-minute video depicting their best talent. We want crazy, we want fun, we want innovative. The contest kicked off June 7, but we're accepting submissions until July 16.

Here's the lowdown:

*Submissions must be uploaded to our YouTube channel, ATomorrow1.

*Video length is five minutes maximum. Submitted videos that are longer will be disqualified. Sorry.

*You must keep the video PG-13.

*Be comfortable with ATOM reserving the right to use and distribute the video.

*Videos must be submitted by sending an e-mail to with your name, name of firm, location, and link to the YouTube video. Write "ATOM's Got Talent" in the subject line.

*All entries/e-mails must be received and uploaded by July 16 at 8 p.m. EST.

*Have fun!

Winners will get "a very special prize," and be judged in these categories:

*Best Defying Stereotype;

*Top Vote Getter; and,

*Best Intergenerational Team.

So get busy! You still have time to get it together and submit something great.

In other Accounting Tomorrow news, Big Four firm PricewaterhouseCoopers shelled out $500,000 in grants to four universities - Bryant University, the University of Southern California, Wake Forest University and Florida International University - as part of its broader effort to promote and support the recruitment and advancement of diverse students within accounting. Well done!
