Richmond, Virginia (PRWEB) June 30, 2014

Seniors Guide, the comprehensive resource for retirement communities, home care, and services for seniors, has announced the official start date of their fourth annual SENIORS GOT TALENT.

Beginning July 1, 2014, Seniors Guides SENIORS GOT TALENT is an online video collection of seniors from across the country having fun by showcasing their talents with the added bonus of a chance at 1 of three top cash prizes: $250 for third place, $500 for second place, and a grand prize of $1,000 for first place.

Each year has been bigger than the last, says Katharine Ross, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Seniors Guide Magazine and

The feedback we get is that everyone has just as much fun filming their talents as they do showcasing them to a large audience, says Ross.

Previous winners of SENIORS GOT TALENT have included retirement communities, senior centers, and independent talents.

Runk & Pratt Senior Living, with communities in Forest, Smith Mountain Lake, and Lynchburg, Virginia, won the grand prize in the 2013 contest for their video remake of Glees Dont Stop Believin. Filmed by the community, the video featured residents and staff in a fully produced music video.

Although some videos may look more professionally done, weve had winners and successful videos that were filmed with an iPhone or digital camera, says Ross.

Another previous winner is back for their third year in a row. The Garner Senior Center in Garner, North Carolina has already submitted a video from their dancing senior troupe the G Squad. Singin in the Rain puts a new spin on the classic Fred Astaire song through the talented groups dancing talents. Previous video submissions from the G Squad included routines to Adeles Rumour Has It and Lady GaGas hit song, Telephone.

Winners of SENIORS GOT TALENT are chosen by Seniors Guide based on the total number of votes each video gets. Just like previous years, the videos with the most individual votes will earn the top prizes. Visitors to Seniors Guides SENIORS GOT TALENTs website can vote for each of their favorite videos daily until the end of the contest.

Seniors Guides 2014 SENIORS GOT TALENT concludes on December 31, 2014 with the announcement of winners the first week of January 2015. For more information, visit, or email Talent(at)SeniorsGuideOnline(dot)com.
