This is a reminder that the first ever Coast Guard Video of the Year competition is still open for voting. The final nominee was posted late last week and the voting will continue until the end of this week, January 8th.
I’d like to encourage gCaptain readers to go to the 2009 Coast Guard Video of the Year Nominees playlist on YouTube and vote for your favorite video. You can vote for all the videos, but should reserve their highest rating for the one(s) you like the most.
In order to vote, you must first sign-in to YouTube using your own user account, watch the videos in the playlist, and then cast a vote using the YouTube rating system of one to five stars directly below the video.
Votes will be accepted until January 8th and the USCG expects to announce the winners on the Coast Guard Compass blog early next week. The units with the top three videos will receive a Flip video camera to enhance their ability to capture and share imagery of their operations.
