Macomb, Michigan, resident Troy Lally is the Grand Prize winner of the “San Diego is Calling” Video Competition.
Lally’s winning 90-second video, which spoofs the SDCVB’s original call-for-entries video, was chosen by a public vote on the final five videos, narrowed down from 23 total submissions from around the United States. The video was chosen for its creativity, originality and enthusiasm for the San Diego region.
Asked about how he came up with the idea for his video, Lally said “I’ve been making videos with my friends for some time, and we’ve come to learn that most videos don’t go as smoothly as expected. After watching the video that announced the contest, I thought of things that could have gone wrong during the filming and thought it would be funny to make a video parodying it.”
As the Grand Prize winner, Lally receives:
• round-trip, economy airfare for four to San Diego
• a three-night stay for four at the Hotel del Coronado
• admission for four to SeaWorld San Diego
• admission for four to the USS Midway Museum
• dinner for four at Café Coyote in Old Town
The first prize iPad 3 was awarded to Dan, from Florida, for his beautiful and creative entry, “The Magic of San Diego.”
