Admit it – you’ve read a car review and thought to yourself: “I would love to have that job,” or “I could do that.” Now you’re in luck – Ford is about to make your budding journalistic dreams come true.

Ford has just announced a contest where one lucky consumer can win a chance to test drive the 2012 Ford Focus near Madrid, Spain. But in order to win, you have got to show Ford your camera chops. They are looking for you to “get your video camera out, get out there and start something more…”

But that’s not all. Ford will also make a $10,000 donation to charity. So the reward is double – you get to do something that makes you feel good, and a charity gets some much needed cash, another reason to feel good!

All you have to do is be a friend of the Ford Focus on Facebook, and then make and upload “a video no longer than 2 minutes explaining why you want to be one of the first to drive the 2012 Ford Focus and how you’d start something more for a good cause with the local market equivalent of $10,000.”

For full details and to take part in the contest, join the Ford Focus Facebook page.
