In Response to the recent riot in Downtown Vancouver after the Stanley Cup Finals, Novus TV wants to turn the tide of the negative image being portrayed of Vancouver to the outside world and help rejuvenate the community pride and spirit.
The Volunteer Cleanup that occurred immediately after the rioting is what has inspired the We ♥ Vancouver Video Contest and Vancity Buzz is proud to be the exclusive blog partner for this contest.
We ♥ Vancouver is an online Community Festival Video Contest where they want you to create visual pieces, whether it’s a video montage of photos/artwork, narrative short films, or even a video of yourself that tell us why you love Vancouver and what you think makes it a great place to visit, live, and party in.
Videos can up to 5 minutes in length and we’ll showcase them on this webpage, on our facebook page, YouTube Channel, and our TV Channel.
The Top 3 Videos will win Gift Certificates to The Bay
1st Place – $1000 Gift Card To The Bay
2nd Place – $500 Gift Card To The Bay
3rd Place – $150 Gift Card To The Bay
There will also be a special “Judges Award” for a 4th video which will receive a $100 Gift Card to The Bay.
We want to spread the word that a handful of hooligans can’t sully this great city and we want your videos to be the rally call.
All Videos must be an original work meant specifically for this festival.
When submitting your video you must include the We ♥ Vancouver Community Festival logo (high rez copy located on www.novuscommunitytv.ca/weheartvancouver) at the beginning of your video.
To submit your video email us a compressed version to review and then we will provide with you with FTP info to upload to our server and then we will upload it to our YouTube Channel at the beginning of the voting period.
Also provide a list of tags you want included with your video when it is uploaded.
Videos are meant to be positive stories involving Vancouver as the main theme.
Video Length: 5 Minutes Max including credits.
Entry Deadline: July 31st 2011 @ 12pm
Voting Period: August 1st – August 31st
HOW TO WIN:
Once voting begins it will be up to you to have your video get the most “likes” on YouTube.
Giving someone else’s video a “Thumbs Down” will not improve your chances of winning. It’s all about being positive, so please don’t try to vote down your fellow filmmakers.
VOTING ENDS AT MIDNIGHT– Any likes received after Midnight will not be counted towards the final tally.
