CONTEST: Take Pics Of The HCC/BTB Ads On A Metro Bus, Win $50 Gift Certificate!
Sometimes one can’t help but be self-indulgent, so please indulge us as we announce a new contest that may seem, well…very self-indulgent.
You see, recently Highline Community College contacted BTB Publisher/Editor Scott Schaefer. No, he didn’t owe money on overdue library books (talk to his little sister about that one…), they found out that he once attended the college and wrote and took photos for The Thunderword, the student newspaper.
Well, HCC launched a new ad campaign on Metro buses this August, and now, apparently Scott’s face is plastered all over them with photos taken by our own Michael Brunk (we send out our sincerest apologies to all passengers â€“ not for the excellent photo, but for the subject of said photo…).
The problem is, Scott hasn’t yet seen any buses with his, um, interesting face on them (not that he’s skeptical, but…), which looks like this:
Here are the details of the contest:
WHAT: Take photos of the HCC/BTB Ads on a Metro bus (please get a shot of both of them â€“ one is on the exterior and the other inside)
WHERE: Metro bus(es) with the ads on them – this is where you have to do some work.
WHEN: Deadline for the contest is 5pm on Tuesday, Sept. 1st.
PRIZE: One $50 gift certificate to The Mark Restaurant & Bar, located at 918 SW 152nd Street in Olde Burien
INFO: Please email a higher-res version of the photos to us at firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on 9/1/09! Winner will be selected by Scott, based on the quality of the photo(s) as well as creativity (meaning, perhaps you could submit a “mash-up” gag photo along with a decent one? Hmmm…we may regret that suggestion…)
