How'd You Two Meet? NYT Invites Video CGM

None other than the venerable Gray Lady just announced couples who submit wedding announcements to the Weddings/Celebrations section are also invited to submit a “How We Met” homemade video. Never before has the Times asked its users for video (heck, a lot of folks out there are still reeling over the fact the Times now runs same sex partner pairings in the section).

NYT.com is asking for videos under three minutes, and they’ll only select yours if they run your announcement — a notoriously stringent process Gawker.com recently attempted to codify.

The Times unsurprisingly specified that video should be appropriate for a general audience. Considering the both subject matter and the selection process, this has to be a pretty safe way to dip a toe into CGM waters.
