Love Detroit? Does your camera love the D, too? The nifty Dig Downtown Detroit website is looking for winning images of the five Dig districts: Downtown, Eastern Market, Corktown, Midtown, and New Center.
Top prize in the Photo Contest is a $250 Dig Downtown Fun Pack, and another 5 shooters will be awarded $100 Fun Packs. Not sure what constitutes a Fun Pack, but those who love Detroit will undoubtedly dig it.
Enter up to 5 photos (one of each district) by November 12; see the rules which include a very important reminder to get the name(s) of anyone who’s recognizable, or you can’t enter that shot.
I wish I’d gotten the name of the shopper at Eastern Market who saw me snapping photos of produce and demanded, with a smile, “Take my picture!”
I obliged, but should have asked for his contact info—not so that I could enter the contest, but I would like to send him the snapshot. I think I’ll make a print and carry it around each time I go to the Market; I’m sure he’s a regular there.
Another Dig Detroit Photo Contest rule: “Play nice, have fun, and let’s raise awareness and celebrate all that Downtown Detroit has to offer!”
