MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Your creativity caught on camera could win you more than a YouTube moment. How does $5,000 in cash sound?

Safe Auto Insurance Company is holding auditions for its annual "Do the Jingle" contest, and Myrtle Beach is the first stop for the SafeAuto team, who is in search of this year's most entertaining musician or performer.

The grand prize winner will receive a cash prize of $5,000.00 plus a role in a SafeAuto television commercial.

Last year's contest brought many entries. Mike Jade and his crew won the competition which resulted in a commercial spot with comedian and SafeAuto spokesperson Norm Macdonald.

The 2011 competition generated over 2 million online votes. The "Do the Jingle" contest allows entrants to create their own rendition of the jingle, which SafeAuto will film and post on the company's Do The Jingle website.

Voting will not start until January 02, 2013, but auditions will be held in Myrtle Beach on July 27 and 28. Those interested in trying out should head to the Hampton Inn Myrtle Beach West at 4551 Hwy 501, Myrtle Beach, SC 29579. Auditions will be open from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. 

Contact Jason Parks at 614-944-7306 or dtj@dothejingle.com for further details and appointment scheduling. Get more information and read the official rules before auditioning.
