AVALON — Budding filmmakers have a chance to showcase their talents and one of the county’s island communities in the 'I Love Avalon' video contest, according to a statement from the Avalon Chamber of Commerce and the 7 Mile Business Community Association.

Participants can submit a video on the Avalon Tourism Facebook page at facebook.com/avalonnewjersey, demonstrating what they love the most about Avalon, said Jacquie Ewing, president of the 7MBCA.

Videos should be tagged #ILoveAvalonNJ, or uploaded through the video contest app. The videos can be long or short, and there is no wrong answer to the question "Why do you love Avalon?" Ewing said.

“The visitors and residents to our town are some of our greatest promoters for all of the amazing aspects Avalon has to offer, so why not have them be part of our tourism campaign?” Ewing said.

Voting for the best videos will take place throughout the summer. The submission with the most votes at the end of the season will receive a "best of Avalon" basket. Other popular submissions will be included in 2018 promotions via social media, digital and print marketing and television, Ewing said.

Organizers said they will accept video submissions throughout the summer.
