Spacing did it, now CTV is doing it: CTV wants you to make a video about our city using the prefix phrase “My Toronto is…”. Interview a kid smoking in line at Funhaus, a smiling, round-faced butcher at St. Lawrence Market, and a Bloor station musician. Ya know, the usual. Then pepper the vid with shots of the skyline, Kensington, and a passing streetcar. Or you can do something interesting.
The contest runs until August 31, 2008. Throughout this period, CTV will feature a contest submission on its website each week. A winner will be chosen each month to win—get ready—a CTV News prize pack! Plus fame, bragging rights, and, for aspiring filmmakers, something to pad out your portfolio. Speaking of, until March 31, 2008, journalism and TV students are permitted to submit their “My Toronto is…” video for a chance to win a $2,000 scholarship/bursary and a summer job offer at CTV. Now that’s more like it.
