Farmfoods is launching a nationwide competition to find a new voice for its television and radio commercials in 2012 - and the winner will pocket a cheque for £10,000.

The frozen food specialist has posted a 30-second script on its website for budding voiceover stars to read, record then send in via the Farmfoods website. Members of the public can either record the existing script, or write and record a 30-second script themselves.

The best three voices will then fight it out during an all-expenses paid trip to a recording studio later this month, with the £10,000 prize money dished out in time for Christmas Day.

Farmfoods has said the successful voice will be “likeable, distinctive and honest”.

Entrants need to be aged over 16, and should send in their recordings by 13 December.
