Metroblogging Streetart Contest: Call for Photos!!

Metroblogging Berlin has organized a worldwide Metroblogging Streetart Contest, and Philadelphia is participating. Enter your photos of local street art (murals, stickers, stencils, mosaics, etc.) to show the world some of Philadelphia’s best.

A Metroblogging Streetart Flickr Pool (NOT our regular Philadelphia Metroblogging Flickr pool) has been set up, to which you can submit your photos (please tag them with “Philadelphia” and “metblogs”, maximum of 3 photos per day).* (As far as I can tell, the photos don’t have to be newly taken.)

Unfortunately, Berlin and other cities got a bit of a head start because they announced the start of the contest to us on the same day they started it, and I haven’t even been in Philly in order to get the news out!

So the dates of the contest are: Wednesday, April 4 through Wednesday, April 18. Every day that there are Philadelphia submissions, I will feature them here on the blog. If there are several, I will post only the best. (If there are only a few submissions, I will post them all.) The following week, each city will vote for their favorites (within their city). And then the week after that, there will be a global contest which pits the best of each city against each other.

(I don’t know how the voting is going to work yet. I will find out and let you know.)

So far the cities they list as participating are Berlin, Boston, Chicago, Houston, London, Portland, Tokyo, and Toronto. I have to tell you, having been to most of these cities myself (Berlin, Boston, Chicago, London, Tokyo, and Toronto), we have our work cut out for us!! But that’s only if we don’t participate. I’m very confident that we can win this contest if we try, because surely Philly has some of the most amazing streetart.

I recently posted about some great photography of street art by terrible_images and I know there are a lot more of you out there who love Philly’s street art, so get shooting and posting!

* If you don’t have (or want) a Flickr account, but want to participate, please send your photos by email to me and I will upload them to my Flickr account and post them for you (with your name and any other info about the photo that you provide me with).
