Just a reminder that the deadline for the Utah Film Commission "Spot On" contest is fast approaching...

It's almost the end of October and we are in the final stretch to accept entry forms for the "Spot On" Commercial Contest. All entry forms must be postmarked by October 30, 2009. The final date for actual submissions is November 26, 2009.

The contest is free to enter and open to all Utah residents and students attending school in the state.

Promote Utah as a destination for motion picture production by creating a 30 second commercial spot.

Winners will receive $1,500 per winning spot (that's right, $1,500), 2010 Sundance Film Festival Credentials and official UFC gear. Not to mention, the opportunity to have YOUR work viewed by thousands of attendees during the film festival, including filmmakers, producers and directors that are there - winning spots will air on Park City Television during the 2010 Sundance Film Festival..
