#BHAMProudContest  presented by PNC Bank

 It's no secret that Birmingham is buzzing lately. Railroad Park Foundation and PNC Bank want to showcase our beloved city.

Through #BHAMProudContest, we're challenging you to portray your civic pride through your videos: Why are YOU #BHAMProud?

Curious about what to submit? Videos can be a slideshow of photos, a quick ‘vlog’ style narrative or any style you feel inspired by. No fancy equipment required - show us something through the lens of your phone or camera that makes you #BHAMProud. Please limit submissions to a maximum of 2-3 minutes in length in order to be considered.

We'll announce a new challenge each month through September, and the entrant whose video receives the most votes will receive a Birmingham Prize Pack valued at $250 and a Railroad Park Foundation “Park Proud" membership valued at $82. Follow Railroad Park on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram for new challenges and to see the winning entries.
