Monday is your last chance to influence the judging of a Downtown Alliance video contest, for which users submitted short films interpreting the phrase "I am Downtown."
The winner, to be announced Tuesday at the inaugural Downtown Symposium at Marriott City Center, will be awarded $5,000. The judging panel's criteria include: originality and creativity, adherence to creative assignment, uniqueness of the story told and overall appeal. The latter, worth 20 percent, is based on likes, comments and views on YouTube. The five finalists' takes range from whimsical to sublime, with each framing the good side of downtown Salt Lake City.
