ROC Digital Makeover Contest… 1 Week to Go!

Post Your Photos to
Facebook Before June 1.

The Great ROC Digital Makeover! Submit a photo of a Rochester scene to RocSubway on Facebook. If chosen, we'll unleash the power of Photoshop and give your scene a digital facelift. You'll also win a FREE 16x10 print of Old Rochester City Hall. [Flickr Photo: globochem3x1minus1]

Given Rochester’s status as the “Image City” and our surplus of neglected real estate, I figured photos of Rochester would be raining down on the RocSubway Facebook page by now.

Here’s an opportunity to see what your city, town, or neighborhood could look like if given a little time and attention. And all you have to do is post a snapshot and get your Facebook pals to “like” it. RocSubway and Photoshop will do the rest.

If your photo receives the most “likes” by midnight May 31, RocSubway will give it a digital makeover and you’ll receive a free 16″x10″ print of Old Rochester City Hall and Subway Entrance.

Still not sure what I mean by “digital makeover”? Here are a few before-and-after examples…
1870's Abandoned Storefront... MAKEOVER!RTS Bus Stop Sign... MAKEOVER!Kodak Tower... MAKEOVER!

Oh and I really don’t want to see a hundred shots of the abandoned subway! Seriously. Here are some better ideas:

  • Do you live in a ratty apartment building? Let’s give it a makeover.
  • Do you own a store or business? Makeover!
  • a streetscape (Main Street or East Ridge Road)
  • an empty lot
  • an old strip mall or row of storefronts
  • a rundown house or a warehouse
  • an underutilized waterfront (Rochester has plenty)
  • a desolate bus stop
  • an ugly retaining wall… MAKEOVER!!

Okay, now that you have your assignment and a few ideas, GET OUT THERE and snap that winning shot!

And here are the first five submissions posted so far. Vote for your favorite…
