Eligible submissions will be reviewed by a panel of judges chosen by Midtown Alliance. Judges will select:

  • one Grand Prize winning entry based on concept, originality, message relevancy, and how the entry conveys the spirit of Midtown Atlanta. The grand prize is $750.00.

  • up to three entries that will then be presented by Midtown Alliance to the public to select a Viewer’s Choice winner, which will be determined by the number of votes each video receives on the Midtown Alliance website between Sunday, January 1, 2017 through Saturday, January 28, 2017 at 11:59pm. The viewer’s choice prize is $300.00.
