photobooth contest – 9 weeks left!

June 29, 2010

We’re one week into the photobooth contest – have you found yourself a booth yet?

Unless you’re a really well known internet personality or institution, it can be tricky getting the word out that you’re doing something interesting. To assist with getting some broader attention, we’ve collaborated with, and (link to their posts about the contest). I’ve also been doing a lot of searching for photobooth fanatics out there in internetland, and have been inviting anyone with a photostrip addiction to check out our contest and take part by submitting an entry. Last week I sent a note to “sars_amandi” who has a Flickr set called My Own Photobooth. He has his own personal photobooth that he has restored over the last year, and he has posted A LOT of photostrips on his Flickr photostream (you should also check out the fun project he is hosting on July 11th). I told him about the contest and that we would love to have him participate. His response was pleasantly surprising:

I saw it on and we’re already working on it!

So, clearly the word is out in the small, specialized, yet geographically dispersed world of photobooth fanatics. Now we need to spread some interest among the “passersby”, those who walk past photobooths, but have yet to use them. What are they waiting for, I wonder?

I decided to ask a couple of graphic designer type acquaintances to help out by creating a poster to promote the contest. Today I’m excited to post images from Jay Panelo, currently a resident of Abu Dhabi (and a ‘waiter’ on this project); and Adriean Koleric, a designer in Edmonton whom I have the pleasure of running into occasionally (both online and in-person)!

Please print off one or both of these images and post them on a photobooth near you!
