The goal of the contest is to create a two-minute video to show locals and visitors why our San Mateo coast is such a wonderful place to visit and play. This will encourage tourism, greater civic pride and educate locals and visitors on the many attractions our coastside has to offer.
Budding filmmakers are encouraged to highlight as much of the coastside as possible keeping in mind that the judges want the entire San Mateo coast represented.
Grand prize is $1,000.
