Highways to Boulevards Video Contest
CNU wants to see your vision for cities without highways! What’s your ideal for the Freeway-without-a-Future in your community?
CNU is launching a contest for engaging, short videos (three-minute max) on urban highways from around the world. CNU asks aspiring filmmakers, urban enthusiasts, and citizen activists to describe the impact urban highways have in their communities. CNU wants to hear local voices on what alternatives they envision for the space instead of a highway.
CNU will post video submissions on its website and share the videos with Highway-to-Boulevard campaigns throughout the country. Plus, CNU will award the three most compelling videos with cash prizes!
