Life in the 603 Video of the Year Award

We are looking for the most creative Life in the 603 videos (formerly known as the ‘Shire Story Video of the Year Award)! Whether you are originally from NH and have stayed, you left and have “boomeranged” back, or you have relocated to the Granite State from somewhere else, tell us about your New Hampshire adventures and why you are deserving of this recognition. Essentially, we want to know why you choose to “stay, work, and play” in the state. Simple!

If you are working and living in NH and are between the ages of 18 and 40, submit your fun Life in the 603 video nomination. Please note: While your videos should look good, they do not need to be of a professional grade quality (though please feel free to submit those). This award is more about the content and the message, than the polish.

A panel of judges comprised of business and community leaders from across the state will select the award recipient. Judging will be based upon:

  • Creativity in telling your story
  • Demonstration of your personality
  • Organization and structure of the video
  • Originality and vision
  • Effectiveness and clarity of communication
  • Adherence to the ≤ 90 second time limit

The Life in the 603 Video of the Year award winner will receive an awesome prize pack allowing them to experience some of the fun of NH. More details coming soon!

Please note: Self-nominations are encouragedPast winners of this award are not eligible to win this award again. 

2018 Nominations are open through Friday, July 27th!
