I am Downtown Video Contest
Deadline June 17
We invite professional and amateur videographers alike to compete and tell their downtown story for a $5000 cash prize.
Check out this video from last years winner - they put their video together in one weekend and won - you can too!
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 100 seconds.
