FC Photo Contest

Shutterbugs meet the gadflies.

The Foothill Cities blog has a city hall photo contest going. Submit up to three photos of a city hall (local or otherwise) to the FC folks and you just might win the $200 first prize. Photos must be submitted by 5pm August 1st.

FC's Centinel explains the rules:

  • You can submit up to three pictures of a city hall. We will only consider your first three submissions, so don’t bother spamming.

  • You can submit your pictures one of two ways: 1) (strongly recommended) by adding them to our Flickr pool (with the tag “cityhallcontest”) or emailing us your submission to centinel[at] (if you really hate Flickr).

  • The top ten pictures will be put to a public vote, and the top three vote-getters will win prizes.

  • The final five pictures will be selected by a panel of judges including myself, Publius, Zajac, Petrea, Frazgo, Ben and Proctor (and possibly a celebrity judge!)

  • Your picture can be of any city hall or city hall-related building in the world (like this knockoff of Pasadena City Hall in Japan). Bonus points will be given to photos that have an FC or Southern California connection, but don’t hesitate to send them in from elsewhere.

  • All submissions must be added to the pool or emailed by Friday, August 1st at 5:00PM. Top ten will be chosen and winners selected after voting is complete.

  • Authors, Contributors, and contest judges to the FC Blog are, of course, not eligible to win any of the prizes.
