Alberta SouthWest is sending a videographer to local communities over the next three weeks to speak with people about what makes southwestern Alberta the greatest place to live, work and visit.
The initiative is intended to promote the “My Alberta SouthWest” video contest.
“In addition to random on the street interviews, we will be interviewing local celebrities and people of interest in a number of communities,” Alberta SouthWest executive director of regional economic development Bev Thornton said.
“We are hoping that Albertans will be inspired by these interviews to prepare and share a personal video of their favourite experience in Alberta Southwest and submit it for our contest.”
Entries will be posted on www.myalbertasouthwest.com and may also become part of a promotional video to showcase the region.
The videographer was to be in Nanton, Stavely, Claresholm, the MD of Willow Creek, Granum and Fort Macleod on July 18-19.
From July 25-26 the videographer will be in Cowley, Pincher Creek, the MD of Pincher Creek, Crowsnest Pass and MD of Ranchland.
From Aug. 3-4 the videographer will be in Hillspring, Glenwood, Cardston, Cardston County and Waterton Lakes National Park.
The “My Alberta SouthWest” video contest is open to any resident of Alberta. Winner must be 18 years or older to collect the prize. Contest details are at www.myalbertasouthwest.com.
