Zephyr Real Estate Sponsors Neighborhood Video Contest

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - October 2, 2009) - When it comes to neighborhood pride, San Franciscans can duke it out like no one else. Zephyr Real Estate is offering an opportunity to earn even more bragging rights by sponsoring a video contest that encourages locals to put the spotlight on their favorite neighborhoods. The video contest has a first prize of $500 (with twelve additional prizes), and selected videos will be featured on the new Zephyr website.

Zephyr is seeking to provide an intimate and well-rounded view of the more than ninety diverse neighborhoods within San Francisco that give this city its multi-faceted and eclectic flavor. The video contest invites locals to declare their neighborhood loyalty and share the inside scoop on favorite hot spots, places of interest, fun hangouts and other little-known treasures.

Zephyr launched a separate website dedicated solely to the contest: The details, rules, and prize list, as well as the online form for submitting an entry, are all available on this site. The contest officially launched on September 15, 2009, and concludes on December 31, 2009.

"We understand that the best spokesperson for any given neighborhood is its residents, and we want to add that fresh, insider perspective to our new website," stated Melody Foster-Brown, Director of Marketing for Zephyr. "Our new website will reflect a hyper-localized point of view, and these videos will further help us achieve that aspect," she added.

Submitted videos will be posted on the S.F. Community Voices website, and the public will be invited to vote on their favorite video, beginning on November 1, 2009. The videos will be judged based on content, originality and creativity.

The contest is solely sponsored by Zephyr Real Estate. Its employees, agents, and family members are not eligible to participate.
