Phoenix Parks and Recreation Announces You Tube Video Contest

The Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department is looking for amateur videographers and photographers to enter their works in a video contest designed to highlight the city’s desert preserves, parks and recreation facilities.

Videos can be either moving video or a video presentation of still photo images. All videos must mention the preserve area, park or community center location at which it was shot and, if applicable, any program featured in it. Winning videos also should build a comprehensible narrative through the use of natural sound (interviews or clips of narration or explanation from participants or users), voiceover narration or on-screen graphics.

To enter, participants will need to post their completed videos on You Tube and submit the link for consideration. Winners will be chosen for each month and will have a link to their You Tube-based videos posted on the department website homepage. Winners also will be announced in a news release and have their videos aired on the Phoenix 11 cable television channel.

Contest details are posted online on the Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department website at
