And We Have a Winner...

December 18, 2012 | Alex

Time for an exciting announcement. Ready? My very own mother and co-author of this blog is a weekly winner in Time Out and Samsung's Photo Contest, "Share Your Now: New York vs. London." Her submission of the Central Park reservoir on a foggy morning was one of five photos selected!

See her winning submission on the Time Out New York website, along with the other this week's winners here.

As a weekly winner, my mom will receive a Samsung Galaxy camera-- a very nifty new design that integrates 3G/4G and WiFi capability. It also works with the Android platform. Pretty much a blogger's dream-come-true. 

But, wait, it might get even better. Three finalists will be picked from among the weekly winners to win a trip for 2 to London! After the trip, Time Out will publish one photo from each of the finalists' trips to London on the cover of Time Out New York.  Fingers crossed! I could sure use an all-expense-paid trip to London (Sorry, Dad. You can go on the next trip she wins.)

The concept behind the contest is pretty cool. It's a face-off of sorts between New York and London-- Time Out London is running a parallel contest, with finalists receiving a trip to New York. So it's essentially an opportunity for the notoriously proud denizens on each metropolis to show off their city. (And to visually demonstrate why it's far superior to its cousin across the pond, naturally.) 

Congratulations, Mom. I raised you right.
