Your vote will help us decide the Grand Prize winner!

We invited you to show us the people, places, and moments that mean the most to you. You shared videos of a firefighter and his son, a juggling unicyclist, a passionate runner, and more. And now that we’ve narrowed this list to five finalists, you can help us choose a winner.

The Grand Prize winner will take home a GoPro Fusion camera and an opportunity to be featured in M&T Bank advertising, while each first place winner will receive a HERO® camera.
