say a picture is worth a thousand words. Great, but what the heck are
you going to buy with a thousand words? That's a rhetorical question, by
the way. Video on the other hand, now that's where all the money is -
at least in Downtown SLC for the lucky winner of a $5,000 grand prize.
The point is simple: contestants are asked to
define/interpret/explain the phrase "I Am Downtown" in a short film. The
only guidelines are to be creative and unique in telling an unexpected
story centered in the downtown area. What's the catch? You only have up
to 11 seconds.

Downtown means different things to each person. For some, Salt Lake
City is synonymous with sports and for others it's art, music,
performances, dining, religous activities, shopping or simply the place
they go to work each day. The point is we don't profess to always know
what downtown means to you.
We invite professional and amateur videoagraphers alike to compete
and tell their story for a cash prize offered by the SLC Downtown
