Tell me if this could work...

Hi! I work for the tourism industry, and I had an idea that I would really like to see happen. I think it would be really cool to have a contest for amateur filmmakers to make a short film about the state they live in -- telling a story about something that happened there, or showing off something cool or weird that only a local would know about. That way instead of getting the same recycled tourist brochure info over and over, people could get new ideas about places that they might want to hit on their next road trip, or be inspired to look at their own area in a new way.

I was wondering if anyone has any advice or suggestions about this idea -- things like what kind of prize should be offered, the best ways to get the word out, or just whether or not you think anyone would care. I haven't talked to anyone about this and don't know whether my boss will even listen to the idea, but I think with a little more info and fleshing-out it could be totally awesome.

What do you all think?
