M&T Bank announced Ronald Dussett was awarded the grand prize in its first "What's Important to You?" video contest, an initiative that asked individuals to share short videos of the people, places and things they love the most. As the grand prizewinner, Dussett will receive a GoPro Fusion camera and a feature in M&T advertising. Four other finalists will each receive a standard GoPro HERO camera.
Dussett, a firefighter in Buffalo, submitted a moving video of a rainy day he and his 1-year-old son spent together at Delaware Park. "Every moment that I spend with my son means the world to me," he wrote alongside his submission.

"We were inspired by Ron's love for his son and his unselfish commitment and service to the community," said Peter Eliopoulos, M&T Bank chief marketing officer. "We launched the 'What's Important to You?' video contest to celebrate those things that matter most, and we are so pleased Ron and all the other individuals who participated decided to share what's important to them."
M&T received nearly 200 submissions from individuals throughout its eight-state footprint. Five were selected as finalists, and the public was given an opportunity to vote online for their favorite of the five finalists. More than 18,000 votes were cast to help determine the winning submission.
