Tampa Bay Community Network is calling for entries into the 2008 Tampa Bay Video Awards to recognize achievements in non-commercial video production. The deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. on Friday, May 9, 2008.
Videos can be those that have aired on TBCN's cable access TV channels or been shown on youtube, myspace or other Internet websites or new media. Home-made videos including those produced with personal cameras or cell phones are also accepted. Videos entered must have been created and first shown during the 2007 calendar year.
Videos of babies, children, pets, garage bands, random acts of kindness, amazing feats, news and sporting events, community happenings and the arts are all welcome – just as long as they are non-commercial.
A panel of independent judges will decide winners in 13 categories and three divisions – professional, non-professional and student. Award winners will be announced on Tuesday, June 17, 2008.
For rules and entry forms, go to www.tbcn.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Pam Garron at 813-254-1687, extension 15.
