Second Childhood

Posted this as soon as I saw Waxy Poetic's Fountain of Youth. His work is truly outstanding.


This is the interactive Crown Fountain at Chicago's Millennium Park.

    Hey there! I'm an editor for a hard-bound book that's currently in production, and found your photos via a Flickr search for great Chicago-area photographers.

    CBS2 is putting on a photo contest for the purpose of finding the absolute best photos of the Chicago area, then publishing them in a fine-art coffee-table book. What's unique about this contest is that users are in the drivers seat, voting for the photos they think should be in the book. There's also a lot of prizes to be won, although for most photographers the exposure (especially if your photos make the book) is the reason to get involved.

    We're calling it Capture My Chicago. It's all free and I think your photos would be a great fit. You retain all rights and you get some great exposure for your website, Flickr page, portfolio, etc. (we properly credit you, and link back to you all over the place, we even help you sell prints if you're set up to do that. Plus, your website is published in the book). If you've got a free minute and want a shot at getting published, winning prizes, or just want to see some other great Chicago-area photos, head over to Capture My Chicago.

    Note: The project is currently in the "seeding" phase, which is why we are reaching out to you and other Flickr photographers. It's a great chance for us to reach out to a community of talented folks we can trust to help get the chapters filled out before the general release to the public. In the very near future (next week or so), the public-facing promotional campaign will start. Now is your chance to get in before many others and get your photos in the mix.

    Oh and we're set up with Flickr to use the Flickr API so putting your photos on the Capture My Chicago website is a click of a button.

    If you'd like to know more about the project, or want to shoot me a FlickrMail, please feel free to do so.

    Thanks for your time!
