PCA recently held its first Winter Holiday Video Contest from November 22th, 2011 – January 20th, 2012. John Maher and David Coe were drawn as the winners of the contest. John Maher, with his submission “Petaluma Pete’s Christmas”, is the lucky winner of a free PCA Producer membership or membership renewal. Membership includes voting privileges and the PCA newsletter, use of PCA media resources, and basic training on equipment for one Member Producer. A Producer membership is valued at $50 per year for general public, $30 per year for seniors, students or low income. David Coe is the recipient of a special primetime slot in the PCA programming schedule for his entry, “Petaluma Christmas Cheer”. Congratulations to the both of them.
Entrants were asked to submit videos sharing the holiday events, merriment, and festivities in their community. Video entries submitted ranged from holiday songs sung in a Capella to highlights of holiday events in Petaluma to Christmas Church programs. The contest was open to anyone in the Sonoma and Marin County areas, and for each holiday video submitted, the entrant’s name was put into a drawing for a chance to win various prizes. The winners were notified on Wednesday, January 25, 2012.
