Group Description

Hi and welcome to Your Design City!

Don't Panic and the Design Museum have been working together with Flickr to invite you to share your photography on the theme of Design Cities.

The new Design Cities exhibition at the Design Museum commemorates seven key cities at their creative heights through contemporary design - London, Paris, Vienna, Dessau, Los Angeles, Milan and Tokyo.

We don't mind where you come from though - we'd like to see contemporary design in your cities, so show us your favourite contemporary design, whether it be architecture, furniture, vehicles, technology or fashion. We want to know what makes the metropolis personal to you, so surprise us!

A panel of 3 judges (to be announced) will select 20 photos to be printed and exhibited in the Design Museum in January 2009 (Tuesday 6th January - Sunday 11th January 2009). One photograph will be selected to be printed on 80,000 Don't Panic posters and distributed across the U.K and some major international cities.

To submit your photograph, add it to the Design Cities group on Flickr before 1st December 2008, be sure you read the Group Rules before joining.

Some things to keep in mind before you submit your photos:
- We’d love it if you could tag and geotag your photos to show us what city they were taken in (and you’ll be able to see where everyone else’s Design Cities are – how cool is that?)
- Try and show us your own personal take on things, don’t be scared to be different.
- Choose carefully what you submit, go visit the Design Cities exhibition or take a look at the website, you can only submit 3 photos, so make sure they are your best shots!
