Congratulations to David Kozlowski of Keller, the winner of our Flickr Photo of the Week contest! He won what was easily our biggest week yet with the contest as more than 60 photos were submitted. David hosts a pretty slick Web site in addition to his Flickr page. He follows last week’s winner, Jason Carter.
If you would like to participate, all you need to do is upload your photo to to our Flickr group page. It’s fine to submit a photo you took previous to the current week, but we are hoping that the contest will inspire you to go out and shoot something fantastic this week to share with Art&Seek users. If the picture you take involves another facet of the arts, even better. The contest week will run from Monday to Sunday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Monday afternoon. We’ll notify the winner through FlickrMail (so be sure to check those inboxes) and ask you to fill out a short survey to tell us a little more about yourself and the photo you took. We’ll post the winners’ photo on Wednesday and Gini Mascorro will read your name on the air at the end of her daily arts calendar.
Title of photo: The Crumbling, Broken Economy
Equipment: Nikon D300
Tell us more about your photo: I was out getting lost of the backroads of North Texas one day and decided to take a turn off the main road to visit the square in Collinsville. I noticed an old, decaying neon sign on a brick wall of the Economy Drug Store. With the wall crumbling, and the paint fading on the word “economy,” it struck me as a symbol of the economic crisis happening right now.
