The city of Imperial is again sponsoring a video contest in order to present life in Imperial to the rest of the world.
The second annual Imperial Video Contest videos and applications are due by 4 p.m. Sept. 12 at the city offices.
People are asked to create a video of things to do in and around Imperial, within a 15-mile radius.
All appropriate videos will be posted on YouTube for voting.
The video with the most views will win $500 in Chamber Bucks. If the winning video receives more than one million views, the prize will be doubled.
Second place will receive $250 in Chamber Bucks, while third place will receive $100 in Chamber Bucks.
The videos may be promoted in any legal way.
They must be G-rated, with no swear words, smoking or alcohol.
All videos must be the original work of the applicant and must conform with YouTube’s policies.
The videos must not exceed five minutes in length and must be submitted in a form that is directly uploadable to YouTube.
The viewing contest will be held Sept 22 through Oct. 20 at 4 p.m.
Community Development Director Jason Tuller said the winning video will replace the winning video in last year’s contest, submitted by the McNair family.
There were four videos submitted last year. Tuller hopes for more contestants this year.
