10th Annual “Spot On” Contest


In 2003 the first “Spot On” Commercial Contest took place. 43 winning commercials later, we are happy to present the 10th annual “Spot On” Commercial Contest. The purpose of the contest is to have our local film community from students to professional to use their creative talents to produce and direct a 30 second commercial spot.

The contest is free and open to all Utah residents and students attending school in Utah. Entrants have the opportunity to win $1,500 (for each winning spot), by directing and producing a commercial spot that promotes Utah as a filming destination. A maximum of four spots may be submitted per entrant. They can be single spots or campaign style (2 or more spots). The commercials are judged by local professionals in the film, television and marketing fields. Winners are announced at the Utah Film Commission Awards Luncheon in December.

Winning spots will also be aired on television during the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and the winners will also receive Sundance Film Festival credentials and official Utah Film Commission gear.

There is still time to enter the contest by submitting an entry form. The deadline for actual commercial submissions is November 30, 2012.

This a great opportunity to get involved, show your talents as a local filmmaker and have thousands of people see your work.

If you have questions about the contest or need assistance, please contact Ricky Flores at 801.538.8740
