On Sunday, I participated in a photowalk in East Austin sponsored by makers of the mobile photo-sharing app Trover.
The contest judges led a group of photographers on a tour of funky-cool East Austin while we took pictures and uploaded them to Trover. Prizes were awarded in four categories:
- Street art
- Foodie finds
- Secret gardens
- Keep it weird
It was great fun to walk around and check out the crazy street art, yard art, and food trailers. I met a lot of really nice fellow photographers from the Austin Photographers Adventure meetup group.
I am extremely happy (and still a little stunned) to say that I won the grand prize, which is a platinum badge for SXSW. A big, BIG thank-you to the Trover folks for organizing a very fun event with cool people and generous prizes.
