For the second year in a row, readers of the Santa Fe Reporter have nominated Outdoor Vision Fest® as “Best (Event or Festival) of Santa Fe.” Now readers are selecting the winner for the category — and I would love anyone reading this to head on over to this webpage, and cast your vote for OVF® as “Best (Event or Festival).”
It seems a tad unfair that OVF is pitted against multi-day and sometimes multi-week festivals — and I would point out that the only other one-night-only event nominated in this category is the annual burning of Zozobra, which has been going on for nearly a century. (Environmental and safety note: we don’t burn anything at OVF.)
If you vote for OVF, feel free to let the world know in a tweet or post, using the hashtag #bosf2016.
Recognition like this can potentially secure more equipment and infrastructure support for OVF, and is also a nice “attaboy”for all the Santa Fe University of Art and Design student media artists who make OVF what it is. See my earlier post for more information about OVF2016, and OVF’s Facebook page and Vimeo channel for even more immersion into the event.
