The “Where’s my effin’ sidewalk?” project is a photo/video contest that Feet First Philly is holding, starting August 1, 2012. We are asking you to submit photos and videos of sidewalk encroachments* that you encounter in Philadelphia. These will be posted on FFP’s flickr stream, and the three that make the most powerful statements will win a prize (read: $$$).
The contest officially begins tomorrow, August 1, and judging will take place on
September 30th October 15. Start emailing your contest entries as soon as possible so that they can be approved for posting on the flickr page!
Send your submissions to Feet First Philly today!*A sidewalk encroachment is any physical obstruction on the sidewalk that limits the space available for walking. This can be anything from sidewalk cafe tables to construction sites that force you to walk in the street. Even places that are lacking a sidewalk count; it’s still an obstacle to walkability. We are primarily looking for sidewalk encroachments in Philadelphia, but submissions from around the region are welcome as well.
