Be Crowned "Best Dunker on YouTube"

By Andrew Bangs

YouTube Sports

The dunk is one of the most exciting plays in sports — it represents athleticism, elevation, creativity and power combined in one moment. Incredible dunk videos are always popular on YouTube, and in many cases, amateur dunkers have view counts that rival the pros. The YouTube Slam Dunk contest — presented by the new Nissan 370Z — seeks to discover and reward the best amateur dunk artists in the United States.

Three prominent YouTube sports partners will be judging your dunks: NBA All-Star and Olympic gold medalist Chris Bosh, original "Fab Five" member and 13-year NBA pro Jalen Rose and the world's hottest dunk crew: Team Flight Brothers.

Visit the Slam Dunk contest channel and please read the rules and regulations carefully. Then hit the court: shoot, edit and upload your video before April 26.

Our esteemed judges will select the top 20 dunkers to move on to a final round, where the YouTube community will vote on the winner. The leading vote-getter will perform with Team Flight Brothers at an official TFB event, receive gear signed by Chris and Jalen and be crowned "Best Dunker on YouTube."

Now get on up!
