photo contest

Visit San Luis Obispo County is calling all business owners, property owners, and locals to join us as a location scout! From the cliffs of Ireland to the Wild West, San Luis Obispo County offers some of the most beautiful backdrops, and we are asking you to help us find and showcase these amazing locations. We are looking for images in the following categories:

Best Private Property* (Modern, Rustic, Ranches)
Best Interior Shot (Rooms, Kitchens, Businesses)
Best Natural Landscape (Land, Water, Trails)
Best Farms Location (Crops, Barns, Windmills, Tractors)
Most Unique Winery (Tasting Rooms, Exteriors, Unique Characteristics)
Most Unusual Location

The San Luis Obispo County Film Commission, a division of Visit San Luis Obispo County, is expanding its efforts to bring film projects to the Central Coast. In order to get production companies out of Los Angeles and shooting in San Luis Obispo County, we need to show them the many unique settings our region has to offer.

Location scouts look for a variety of styles, structures, and settings. Let your creativity run free! Our suggestions above are just a few ideas of what could be found in each category. Show us the locations that make San Luis Obispo County so unique.

One (1) Grand Prize Winner will receive two (2) Movie Star passes to the San Luis Obispo International Film Festival March 6-10, 2013. Other fun and exciting prizes for category winners will be awarded.
