Local Video Contest WINNERS ANNOUNCEMENT!

By
Real Estate Broker with Austin Texas Homes, LLC 453249

After a few days of judging, I am happy to announce the winners of the "Local Video" contest that we were running from June 1st - June 23rd. 

Here's the original announcement in case you missed it:

How To Get Some Easy Bonus Points on ActiveRain - Local Video Contest Announcement

We had a great turnout, with about 40 entries overall.  Frankly, this was one of the most difficult contests to judge that I have been a part of on AR.  Thanks very much to the other judges:

 

Without further ado, here are the winners!


Irene Kennedy - 1st Place - 5000 Bonus Points!

Fascinating, FREE Family Fun - FOSSILS in Hamburg, NJ

Irene was one of the only contestants to appear in front of the camera in her entry, which went a long way with the judges.  I felt like I got to know her better, and she wasn't afraid to be a little silly, too, which always helps.  Kudos to Irene for her winning entry!

 

 

 

 

Steve with Amazing Video Tours - 2nd Place - 3000 Bonus Points

Entry for the ActiveRain Localism Video Contest

Steve's video is definitely the slickest with regard to its production quality.  I would highly recommend contacting him if you are in the general Charlotte area!  Great job, Steve!

 

 

 

Christine Donovan - 3rd Place - 2000 Bonus Points

Fun Things for Kids in the Newport Mesa Area: The Balboa Fun Zone

Christine's personal touches made this worthy of placing in this contest.  I want to visit her town!  Thanks for providing multiple good entries, Christine!

 

 

As a small aside, there were a good number of entries that were never actually posted to Localism, so they were not able to win.  However, we will award the 500 bonus points to those entries as well, just for the effort.

Thanks for reading!  I look forward to our next contest!

Congrats to the winners. Did you say all contestants will be awarded the 500 points? Didn't see them yet.

Next time, let's separate the amateurs and the professionals. Justsayin in Twitterease.

Kathy,

As THE only person who can safely point this out, I'm highjacking!

Given the totally amateurish quality of the 1st place video, I think it is really clear that the "non-quality" focus was upheld.  No way did you think some pro won...

Jason told me it might take a week before the points appear.
