Due to to some health reasons I was looking for a way to make a living from home and found your services, I am very excited about my new life.

Imagine what my voicing will be like a year from now. Thank you Stephanie for the opportunity to stay here for a year for FREE! A giant hug will come your way if I win!

  16. I’d love to win this and actually afford to look for voice over work. I am on various podcasts, fan dubs and voice over projects on the net and currently am not being paid. I am also a friend on Twitter, and facebook. Anyhow would love to get this chance.

  17. Hoping to win the big prize! I read your blog every day and it helps me to stay insightful about my career, plus gives me terrific ideas and helps me stay connected. Thanks!

  18. I would very much like the opportunity to win a premium membership. I am currently a month-to-month premium member and have recently fallen on hard times (like so many of us in the country right now). I’ve been a member since June of this year and am very impressed with the team and the calibre of clients I have had the pleasure of submitting demos for. My goal is to make voice over acting a full time job. As a single parent, winning a Premium Membership would be so helpful to me financially.
    I anxiously await the launch of the new facelift at and look forward to a long lasting and prosperous relationship.
    Keep up the great work, and thanks again for this opportunity. I am very appreciative of all your hard work and dedication.

  23. I’m looking forward to getting my voiceover career started and this membership would be a great help along the way. Thanks for the opportunity.

  24. I could say, I started out in a log cabin, but the truth is, I started out in a park! I was a baby boomer child, and, my first home was in the army barracks for the returning soldiers. Now, I am disabled, and, everyone says, let your “gift” see you through. I don’t have the money, or equipment yet, but, I know God will open a door for me to do my life’s work. I pray, this is the shot in the arm I need to do something worthwhile for my family. Thank you for the chance Stephanie.

  25. Stephanie,
    What a GREAT idea!
    Not only is VOICES.COM the best site for VO talent out there…but now a FREE MEMBERSHIP too???
    You’ve won my heart over.
    (if I win…of course!)

  26. Don’t we ALL like FREE??? I’d love to be offered the FREE premium membership to! About the only thing better would be a FREE “business expense” pass from the IRS!!!

  27. I have been a proud member of since Halloween 2005. To quote a famous line from my colleague with the Buffalo Sabres, play-by-play legend Rick Jeanneret, “These guys are good! Scary Good!” That’s how I feel about!

  28. I just got started with although I’ve been a voice over actress for over 30 years. The industry has changed so much. I just set up a home studio because I had taken some time off to pursue another venture while still doing voice overs. I had gotten a little out of the loop technology wise. Who knew we would need to be our own engineers? The info you provide on the site has been very helpful. Thanks a lot!

  29. What a fabulous prize! Oh yes count me in. This would be more help than I can express in kick-starting my voiceover career! Times are tight, and your generosity is truly a gift.
    Liz Wiley

  30. Man oh man,
    With my home recording booth finalized, being chosen for the 1-year Premium membership subscription to would be the penultimate ICING ON THE CAKE! Thanks for all the great work you and your staff do Stephanie!
    Many thanks for the opportunity, Mark

  31. I’m a professional voice actor. I live in Buenos Aires but I’m a New Zealander. I’ve supplied voiceovers for Sci-Fi Channel UK, The Travel Channel UK and Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. Can do straight and character work, and am currently supplying character voices for an animated series. To be honest, I’m a bit skeptical about this service. $300 smackeroos seems a lot to lay out without even so much as a week’s trial. Seems a great way to take money from hopefuls who may never get any work. In my experience, REAL acting agent’s don’t charge upfront fees. They are confident enough in what they do to make money by taking a commission. That’s decades of experience and cynicism talking, but maybe you can prove me wrong!
    Hi Scott,
    Great to hear from you. Just one clarification that will make a world of difference: is not an agency. We don’t take an agency fee for connecting voice actors with clients.
    I fully believe that this would be an adventure unlike any you’ve encountered before and would do well to give the service a try. It’s self-promotion at its finest 🙂

  32. Hi Stephanie,
    Is there anyone in their right mind that would not want to win a Premium Membership to What a generous prize and of course I hope to win!
    Have a great week!

  33. Sound like music to my ears. Free for 1 year! Give me the opportunity to expand my talent and make more money.

  34. WOW! I had started a profile eons ago, and now that my studio is up and running a membership to voices would really give me the boost I need! I have contemplated for quite some time, so am very excited to have this chance to test this out! Pick me! I am just about ready to launch my new demo I just produced at Startrax in NYC. I see that my old voice coach is on the premium page too! Don Morrow. The timing is perfect!
    Sincerely, Jessie Gilman

  35. Stephanie!
    Your Vox Daily is such a wonderful thing to wake up to every day. I love having my daily dose of VO inspiration to help me stay focused and informed.
    Thanks so much for all your contributions to our world!

  36. Who wouldn’t want to win this? You’d have to be nuts or working in another industry.
    I could do with some luck. I wish you all luck as well.

  37. In this recession wracked time, cutting one’s cost of marketing as part of cutting expenses are the best options. I would love to win this prize. BTW, Twitter is great. Micro blogging is really fun too.
    Thanks, Bill Keating

  38. You continue to up the ante with better and better giveaways. What a wonderful prize for some lucky vo talent! Thanks in advance from all of us out here struggling to make a living in this crazy industry.
    Best regards,
    Robin Rowan

  39. BOO! didn’t mean to scare you. Just want you to know that having an upgrade to my membership would be beneficial to my economic situation, but better than that make it possible to expand my reach to companies and organizations that would gain from my talents. Great idea.

  40. just keeps getting better and better. I have learned so much from all the materials you’ve put out. I plan to join even if I don’t win; just waiting on my mic to be returned from the “doctor” and I’ll be up and ready. Just got my home studio set up and am saturating myself in voiceover information. Can’t wait to start auditioning!

  41. Stephanie,
    This is indeed the best giveaway so far! Especially for those of us who are relatively new to the industry as it gives us the opportunity to be on a level playing field with all of the pros who belong to It would be great to see more of these premium memberships as part of the regular Saturday Giveaways!

  42. Hi Stephanie!
    I LOVE and would love it even more if I received a FREE premium membership. Every year I make back my membership fee PLUS some.. unlike other Voice services out there.
    As a matter of fact, I’ll be heading to a convention for 3 days this week to be the “fast talking” voice. I auditioned for the gig right here at!

  43. If by some chance I could start auditioning for these nifty jobs I could take over the WORLD!!
    I would no longer be this 90 pound wimp that talks as high as a canary sings. I would compete with subwoofers across the planet and win the hearts of many.
    If I don’t win the contest, a life altering event will not occur and I will sink to the depths of new lows….

  44. With all the current financial challenges – this would really kick start our relationship moving me up to the ranks of real player with
    Thanks for providing such a great resource with your website and this SUPER prize. I wanna win pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze!
    Have fun,

  45. I can’t say how wonderful it would be to be able to go back to the VO biz full time again. I’ve been working in retail for the last several years because of some family and financial hardships and to be able to give my time and talent to the greatest business in the world full time would be the greatest gift imaginable. Please enter my voice into the contest, and thank you for the opportunity.

  46. What a magnificent opportunity for me to further my VO career.( or anyone else, but especially me) This would allow me to invest in other areas of “the master plan” ( such as equipment, web site construction etc) Please include me in your great give-away.

  47. Woohoooo- Not like we’re not already winners by just knowing about… but first the new and improved website AND a chance for Premium Subscription.
    Color me lucky… or at least color me entered to win.

  48. G’day Stephanie!
    With the Aussie dollar currently worth the financial equivalent of a short length of string, 3 shiny pebbles and a ball of navel fluff, a years membership to would be a huge shot in the arm!

  49. As the end of my current annual membership draws to a close, this would sure be a welcome prize for the coming year.
    This would allow me to put the money I would have spent on next year’s membership into something equally productive like a voice coaching session or two.
    Best prize yet!
    Pick me! PICK ME! 🙂

  50. What an AWESOME Prize! My passion is voice over and I have been working hard at it but getting very confused with so many directions to turn for marketing and generating leads. It would be a gift from above to be able to have a premuim membership to VOICES to help boost my business to the next level.
    Keeping my fingers crossed,
    Jewel Stout

  51. I can’t believe what I’m reading!!! You’re giving away a Premium membership??
    Put me in the drawing with CAPITAL LETTERS and many exclamation points!!!!!!!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  52. Anything that can help me advance in my voiceover career would be extremely helpful and greatly appreciated. I think it’s great that you are offering such great things for people trying to make it in the business! I would be absolutely thrilled to be the winner! Pick me, pick me!!!!!!
    Susan Addis

  53. I would love to get a 1-year Membership I been on for a month and a half….. still no jobs but I have hope and having a 1 year Premium membership would take some pressure off.

  54. Hi Stephanie !
    The prize is great… but chances of my winning seem very less, may be since I am not from your land…
    Anyway…who so ever wins, my congratulations in advance…
    Gaurav Marwaha

  55. WOW! What a fabulous offering. Count me in! Thanks for constantly working to improve your product and thus our abililty to audition and work. Great site!
    Thanks for all the opportunities you present.

  56. Positive possibilities exist on every level… So, give the ‘ol wheel a spin and see if my name comes up a winner. In the meantime, I’m gonna fo find my lucky rabbit’s foot from the 2nd grade… Thanks for the opportunity to join in the circle of hopefuls:)
    Best to everyone…
    With Gratitude,
    David Alden

  57. When the article is written in the trades it will say…But Jim Raposa’s voice-over career hit the highest of heights when he won a year’s membership to That’s when producers caught sight (ear) of his versatility behind a mic…etc, etc.
    Why not? Sometimes you can catch lightning in a bottle. The next highly sought after voice-over performer is as close as your mouse and keyboard. Will it be you or me?

  58. Of all of the Saturday Giveaways I’ve seen, NONE beat the response to this one as best I can tell.
    Since everyone else is saying they are “in”. Perhaps I would have a better shot by saying:
    HECK NO, I don’t want a Premium Membership to some unknown online casting site that never shows any interest in helping voice actors or those seeking to hire them. Why would I want to be associated with an unproven business that says it uses some thing called the internet to deliver auditions to voice talent…that’s silly…that couldn’t work. We are supposed to get in our cars and go to local studios to audition or to our agents office in L.A. or NY to get behind the mic…all other areas of the country are out of luck.
    For crying out loud, you would think the way these folks at talk, they can actually send multiple auditions a day “electronically” no less, and then a person could, somehow, audition from home and potentially book enough work to provide for their family…all off of a web site (whatever that is) called I suppose the next thing you’re gonna say is that could help me build a repeat client base which makes up about 90% of my monthly income…come on!
    Nah…..nope…not me……I’m not in! Too risky…
    REMEMBER: If all this sounds to good to be true….

  59. Hi, Stephanie! Given the tremendous volume of comments to this post, you can tell that we are all incredibly excited about the prospect of winning a premium membership! We all recognize the significant value of for our careers, and the variety of things you do to promote the site and the talents is nothing short of AMAZING!
    At the risk of knocking myself out of the running, I have to say I like Jim Raposa’s style! He already is visualizing the success following his winning entry. The first step in achieving any goal is to visualize its successful conclusion. Obviously, when you and David first visualized, you saw the future of the voice-over industry!
    Stephanie, thanks for this fun contest and all you do everyday to strengthen the voice-over community!

  60. It would be a real thrill and a blessing to win a one-year membership for My budget has simply not allowed me to be able to pay for premium service on a similar site (which my frustrations with that site led me to and it’s killing me to know I have the talent, the training, and the experience to be a successful voiceover artist and not be able to submit auditions simply because I can’t afford the premium service right now.
    Although I just now signed up with a profile, I’ve been a regular visitor to this site for the blog and the great resources this site offers, and I’ve recommended the site to a number of fellow VO artists as well.
    And this is likely going to sound like kissing up to win this, but over the next week I’m going to be actively promoting via the VO sites and forums I’m a member of and doing some web marketing for via a directory I’m an editor for in order to increase web traffic exponentially for a site that is well-deserving of such broad exposure.
    Here’s hoping to be the next winner…

  61. Hey, Stephanie!
    What a great prize! Count me in — as others have said, the budget just doesn’t permit a premium membership right now, so to win would be excruciatingly marvelous! Keep up the cool columns, too — I enjoy the questions you pose . . .

  62. I would love to win a Premium Membership to all-New! So many of my friends are so happy with your service and Stephanie, I look forward to Vox Daily every day! My agent in NY , Toni Silveri said you’d come down to have dinner with her and Pat Fraley when he was in town teaching and it was wonderful! I hope I win- and thank you!
    Talmadge Ragan

  63. Stephanie! OF COURSE I want a free premium membership. It’s rough to pay just for a month here and there whenever the money’s coming in. I want to be in the mix EVERY DAY!

  64. Wow – me, me, me, me! I am looking forward to all the new improvements. I always get such speedy and friendly responses when I use the live chat feature. Thanks for all your help with my VO career!
    Jenn Thayer

  65. I tried to come up with something clever to write. Maybe something about the high price of gas, the high price of groceries, the high price of (your favorite commodity here).
    But, no, I’m just gonna beg.
    Thank you.

  66. Oh this is just one of those days, when you think that you’re getting the best out of a voice over referral site, and pops up another new promo..
    But wait. I’ve never heard anyone better than
    Is there?

  69. This may be the thing that could give my VO “career” a boost. Even though I’ve not yet gotten a gig from, this may give me the additional exposure I need to hopefully lure one.
    Thanks for the opportunity.

  70. The time is NOW for me to launch my VO career to the next level. “Failure is not an option!” Winning a Premium membership could be the rocket fuel I’m looking for.

  73. I need a free membership. After 15 years on the air in Macon Georgia and 30 years overall I was released due to “budget cuts” this past Friday. I need the work!

  74. I just love! I met and talked with some of the people at the Voice 2007 convention in Las Vegas. Everyone I talked to was so great!
    I hope y’all had a great Halloween! And good luck everyone on winning the free membership 🙂

  75. Chris, I am with you! I just read this over at another voice site… apparently only 4 VERY critical days late! I am not too proud to beg, can I be counted in?
