Buffalo, where's the love? Queen City, Nickel City, City of Good Neighbors -- the fact of the matter is, we have a lot to offer, and it's your turn to show your fellow Buffalonians just how much you love Buffalo. Send your concept videos to Artvoice, and the best videos will be produced with professional audio/video equipment by the Artvoice Web Team, with you in the director's chair! Your video can be about anything you love about Buffalo and the surrounding area. Because you know what? Buffalo, we love you.

There are no restrictions on the type of video you may create -- narrative, music video, storyline, documentary, anything at all. Upload your video to youtube.com and let us know about it at artvoice.com/videocontest.
