Bradford living competition


Let's show everyone how much Bradford has to offer!

The #BradfordLiving Video campaign will be a video competition open to the public where participants will create a short video about the parts of living Bradford.


Prizes - What Will You Win?

The winner of each month will receive a $250 Gift Card from the Bradford Chamber of Commerce.

The winner will be chosen the first week in July and will be contacted by phone or email.

Video Guidelines

  1. Create a short video showcasing the best part(s) about living in Bradford.  

  2. The length of each video must be at least 30 seconds long.

  3. All local residents are able to participate.

  4. Participants are encouraged to be creative in showing what they feel are the best aspects of Bradford. Whether that is through a favorite store on Main Street, restaurant, trail or a tourism destination like the Kinzua Bridge.  Establishing a theme is a great way to tell a story. Although themes are not required, some examples that will create a clear message in a video are outdoor recreation, friends and family, or sense of community.

  5. All footage included in video submissions should be captured within the City of Bradford and surrounding areas: Foster Brook, Lewis Run, and Lafayette County.  In addition to tourism and recreation areas like Allegheny National Forest, Kinzua Bridge, and other local state parks.

  6. All videos must be submitted on or before the deadline of June 31, 2020

  7. Please follow the local COVID-19 guidelines.

What if I'm not an experienced videographer? Can I use my phone?

That's okay! We want to see everyone's perspective on why Bradford is a great place to live. Professional equipment is not required to create a video, your phone will do just fine.
