TED (Technology Entertainment Design) holds popular conferences worldwide that have included guest speakers like Bill Gates, Jamie Oliver and Al Gore. Now, TED is looking for its next set of speakers for its 2013 programming and it could be you! TED will host a series of auditions in 14 countries this spring where anyone can submit a video application on TED’s website. Selected applicants will be invited to the auditions and have their videos online for public voting. The 50 most popular candidates will be considered for upcoming TED events.

The organization hopes that online audition will cast a wider net in finding “undiscovered talent.” The first audition will be held in April in Doha as part of the TEDxSummit and the application process will be open two months beforehand.
