The public is now invited to participate in the voting process by viewing the submissions on Foot Locker’s YouTube page today through Oct. 15. At the end of the viewing period, the creators of the three spots with the most YouTube views will be flown to New York City for an exclusive screening event hosted by Foot Locker and ASICS America on Oct. 26, where the winner will be selected and announced by a panel of judges that will include elite runners and celebrity guests.
The winning spot will air nationally on Sunday, Nov. 1, during the television broadcast of the 2015 TCS New York City Marathon on ESPN2, from 9:00 a.m. – 12 p.m. ET. The winning filmmaker will also receive a cash prize from MOFILM, plus an all-expenses paid trip to Las Vegas for the annual MOFILM Awards.
