APPLY TO BE ON THE

Colorado Creative Corridor Tourism Video Series

Call for Creatives in Paonia, Carbondale, Crested Butte, Ridgway, and Salida Creative Districts

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Monday, June 15, 2020

We’re making a five-episode video series in the five towns along the Colorado Creative Corridor to convey the unique spirit of each town through a selection of beautiful sights and immersive sounds. Our goal is to inspire travelers toward making the trip and visiting. And you’re invited to apply to be a featured creative!

The Colorado Creative Corridor links the five towns of Paonia, Carbondale, Crested Butte, Ridgway, and Salida through common themes of small-town culture and arts by promoting each destination’s creative districts and activities ranging from cultural events, outdoor recreation, and dining.

ABOUT THE APPLICATION PROCESS

Each episode will feature up to three creatives in their element, working and creating. We will select people for this video series based on a few criteria, including your level of interest in sharing your work, and the visual and sonic nature of your creative discipline.

To apply to be considered for the Colorado Creative Corridor tourism video series:

  1. Complete the application (below) for you and your business to be considered for this video series. Please submit your application by Monday, June 15, 2020.
  2. After the June 15 deadline, we’ll review the applications and select up to 3 creatives from each town. We will notify everyone who applies of the status of their application and whether or not they’ve been selected.
  3. If you’re selected, in August we will schedule a pre-production call over a Zoom group video chat with you and the other featured creatives in your town to prepare for what we’ll film together. We will also share the filming timeline for the project, pending local and state COVID-19 restrictions and required safety protocols.
