Are you so excited for the next Dragon Age game that you want to shout about it? Try making a YouTube video instead.

BioWare has taken to its blog to announce a competition with a difference: it's a chance to voice one of the characters in the highly anticipated Dragon Age: Inquistion.

Entry is simple. Chose from one of two sample scripts and then show off your skills on YouTube. All BioWare wants "is for you to perform your preferred script in your lovely, natural speaking voice".

Judging will be based "the quality of the voice performance and how well it matches the style of Dragon Age". Winners will be flown to the closest BioWare recording studio (London, Edmonton or LA) to have their dulcet tones recorded for prosperity.

Entries opened today and run until 6.01pm AEDT on 24 March 2014, with winners announced on 14 April. And yes, it is very definitely open to Australian and New Zealand residents.

For fans, this is a fun competition and great chance to peek behinds the scenes at video game production, so get in there and have fun. But do make sure you read all the contest rules regarding the release of any copyright for your entries and do remember: voice talent is usually a paid job for people in the industry.
