C’mon, who doesn’t love a fun contest? Makes you get your creative on, lets you flex your (virtual) muscle against others, and sometimes you even win! The Museum of Science Fiction in DC (coming soon) is teaming up with Disney’s Tomorrowland to see what you have in your brainpan…in regards to THE FUTURE (future…future…future….)
What do you get, besides a whole lotta really impressive nerd cred? You get your photos showcased on the Museum’s Facebook page if you’re in the Top 25. And if you’re one of the big winners, you get a prize pack of Tomorrowland swag (sweet), and a $50 gift card so you and your buddies can enjoy the show (sweeter!)
So, get to snappin’ those pics, creating those images, or basically doin’ all the art. As I have absolutely no talent whatsoever in that regard, I eagerly look forward to seeing what y’all come up with. Bonus points for hoverboards! (Not from the contest. From me. I give you bonus points from my heart.)
NOTE: don’t send me stuff. As much as I’d like to see it all, get it to the contest, not to me. Because you can win. Yes, you. I believe in you.
Read on for the full press release!
