Alpena- The 2nd Annual Fresh Takes Video Contest kicks off on Wednesday at 6:00pm in the Alpena Civic Theatre.
The theme for this year’s contest is showcasing the Sanctuary to the Great Lakes. Last year, seven films were entered to the contest. First, second, and third place all receive prize money. There will also be a people’s choice award.
With no affiliation to the contest, Michigan MicroAdventures will debut along with the winner’s of the contest. Michigan MicroAdventure is the brain child of filmmaker Zach Irving, who competed in the inaugural Fresh Takes Video Contest. He worked with Alpena Convention & Visitor’s Bureau President Mary Beth Stutzman and was able to acquire a Michigan Regional Prosperity Grant to help produce the 4 part series which follows Zach’s father and brother on adventures throughout Northeast Michigan. The series will go on tour throughout Michigan.
This event is free and open to the public. A popcorn bar will be provided.
