Thank you and congratulations to everyone who entered our photo contest for SPARKconX this past weekend! We had a ton of great submissions (see photo gallery at the bottom of the page) but in the end there could be only one: this shot from Instagram user maple_surple! She is the proud winner of a $20 gift certificate to Reader’s Corner on Hillsborough Street!
In a partnership with the organizers of SPARKconX — 2015 marks the 10th year of this annual festival — the Raleigh Public Record is holding a photo contest that will be open through Monday, September 21.
All you need to do is head downtown sometime over the next few days, enjoy the events, food and live entertainment and at some point take a non-selfie picture (if you can) and tag it on Twitter or Instagram with #SparkXPhotoComp.
If you’ve already been to SPARKcon and taken some good pictures, go ahead and upload those with the same tag.
The winner will be chosen by an elite panel of judges, and will receive a $20 gift card to the wonderful Reader’s Corner, a used book and music store on Hillsborough Street.
This page will be updated throughout the weekend to include any submissions that come in. Good luck, and have fun!
