SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. –
Air Mobility Command is searching for the 2014 AMC Icon.
All AMC installations will host base-level talent shows in either July or August.
The AMC Icon program is loosely based around the hit TV program, American Idol.
Local contestants compete for $1,000 in cash prizes, the top active duty Air Force vocalist will then compete for $2,000 in cash prizes at the command level.
This year's AMC Icon Command Finals will again be conducted via video submissions which will be judged by a panel of celebrity judges. All videos will also be posted online for all to view.
The top three AMC finalists will receive cash awards of $1,000, $600 and $400 respectively.
The AMC Icon program also features a special category for those Air Force members not stationed on or near an AMC host base. AMC affiliate participants can enter by forwarding a music video showcasing their talents. Cash awards are available in this category as well, and the winner will also compete in the command finals.
"Now in its seventh year, AMC Icon is an excellent way to showcase the extremely talented Airmen throughout the Air Mobility Command" said Scott Black, AMC Icon program manager.
"In addition, AMC Icon allows installations to come together to support their favorite vocalists in a fun, relaxing environment," Black added. "The overall experience also helps to instill confidence in those who compete, resulting in more productive and resilient Airmen."
Interested participants are encouraged to contact their installation Force Support Squadron Marketing office for additional information. Local base shows are open to all ID card holders 18 and older.
