Colorado Office of Film, Television & Media launches 'Colorado Revealed' video contest

Entrants can win up to $15,000 in prizes and three Hateful 8 film strips provided by KODAK

DENVER - Mon., Feb. 8, 2016 - When the world thinks of Colorado, what comes to mind? The great outdoors? The Wild West? Craft beer? World class skiing? All of these are essential elements of Colorado's DNA, but those who know the state understand there is so much more to discover! Filmmakers, home movie aficionados, documentarians, sports enthusiasts, musicians, promo/spot creatives and experimentalists from all over the world are invited to submit a one-minute video showcasing what they think makes this state unique to Colorado Revealed.

"Colorado has so much more to offer than world-class skiing," said Colorado Film Commissioner Donald Zuckerman. "We want to showcase the untapped potential of our gorgeous and unique locations for the rest of the world to see."

Video submissions will be accepted through April 4, 2016. The public will be invited to vote on the best videos. Prizes include three Hateful 8 film strips provided by KODAK and up to $15,000 in cash.

The Colorado Revealed Video Contest is hosted on The Audience Awards contest platform. Entrants will need to create a free Audience Awards account to submit to the contest. Viewers can also sign up for free to watch and vote for their favorite videos from April 5-11, 2016.
