The qualified entries in the My Lafayette Video Contest are in and up and await your vote here until May 31.

A joint project of the Lafayette Convention & Visitors Commission and AOC Community Media, My Lafayette was designed to showcase Lafayette/Acadiana as a prime tourist destination and its residents as creative storytellers.

"It's been pretty fantastic. We had 25 entries," says Ed Bowie, executive director at AOC, adding that four or five were disqualified for language or content. "We had a wide variety, it was pretty cool. I'm pretty jazzed about the variety and the number of entries."

The top three videos will be awarded cash prizes of $1,000, $700 and $300. Winners will be selected based on popularity and points determined by a committee.

You have until May 31 to vote for your favorites. The winners will be announced at LCVC's membership luncheon June 13.
