Fresh Takes Video Contest

Submitted by on November 8, 2019 – 3:37 amNo Comment

The Alpena Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) is now accepting video submissions for its annual Fresh Takes Video Contest.


The competition offers amateur videographers and filmmakers a platform to share their passion. The top video will be awarded $500 in cash.


Past entries have included family vacations, drone footage, GoPro first person point of view (POV), educational narration, storytelling, outdoor adventure and more.


The length of videos should be between 30 seconds and two minutes. Submissions will be accepted through Friday, December 27, at 5 p.m.


“We designed this contest to offer creators of Alpena videos a stage upon which to tell their visually compelling story from start to finish about Alpena, our Sanctuary of the Great Lakes,” said Mary Beth Stutzman, presidents and CEO of the local CVB. “Video is an important communication tool in that it allows creators to visually reach out to the viewer and inspire them.”
