PortlandWiki Photo Contest

Join PortlandWiki.org as we build a photo gallery of Portland city images in our first annual photo contest! The Portland Wiki Photo Contest is a one day event for contributors and visitors of PortlandWiki.org to take snapshots and photographs that can be used as support imagery for a page or topic on the wiki. The goal is to inspire civic activism and artistic expression by challenging participants to capture personal and/or original photography for use at PortlandWiki.

We'll kick start this event Saturday, June 4th with a 10am-10:30am meet up at The Mezz coffee shop, NW Burnside/12th (inside Whole Foods). We'll pass out PortlandWiki.org press badges and share details about photo uploading and prizes. If you'd like to get started on your own that's good, too! Just follow the instructions at http://PortlandWiki.org/PhotoContest.

All photos should be taken between 9am-5pm. Photos qualifying for contest prizes must be uploaded by 12:01am Monday, June 6th. This community contest is open to all Portland area folks. Anyone under 18 should have permission to participate from a parent or guardian. At the end of the day, we'll get together for a drink and photo sharing stories, location TBA.

Prizes: Contest winners will receive downloadable winner badges for bragging rights on your blog, Facebook page or Twitter profile! Plus a PortlandWiki.org front page banner and a standing ovation video of your "best of show" work! Yeah, baby!

Award announcements will take place at WikiWednesday on June 8th at 6:30pm at at The Mezz coffee shop, NW Burnside/12th. We invite you to join us!
