(UPDATE: Contest deadline extended to June 1, 2012!)
Daniel Island Real Estate wants to see and hear what residents and others love most about living, working and playing on Daniel Island. Fans of the island town community are invited to enter the “My Island Town Video Contest” by creating and sharing a short video about life on Daniel Island. Your creativity could pay off: More than $3,000 in prizes are being given away to winners in two age categories.
The contest runs March 28 – May 1 and will be open to all ages. Entrants are asked to submit high-definition video segments shot on Daniel Island that are up to three minutes in length and answer: “What I Love About My Island Town.” Entries can be simple clips or fully-edited segments, as long as they depict life on Daniel Island — from nature and activities in parks and on the trails, to island events, island businesses, neighborhood gatherings and more.
Prizes will be awarded in two categories: Adult (age 15 and up) and Youth (children though 8th grade). The prizes break down as follows:
First prize – $1,500
Second prize – $750
Third prize – $250
First prize – $500
Second prize – $250
Third prize – $100
Videos will be judged for originality and effectively telling a great Daniel Island story. Winners will be announced to the public in mid-May on MyIslandTown.com, Daniel Island Real Estate’s YouTube channel (DanielIslandSC) and via Facebook and Twitter.
