Tourism department holding contest to encourage state travel

Carlsbad Caverns

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The state’s tourism department is giving an incentive to vacation in the state this summer.

The state’s tourism department is putting on a film festival of sorts. The tourism department is asking visitors to share videos of their favorite state park, national park, and historic site. The public will then vote for their favorite videos.

“We get to encourage New Mexicans to travel, we get to show off our state parks and historic sites, and we are creating video content that is useful as a trip planning tool for people who are making vacation decisions about visiting New Mexico,” said Rebecca Latham of New Mexico Tourism Department.

Some of the prizes include camping equipment and GoPro cameras. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
