Metblog International Street Art Contest


The Berlin Metblog has made the heinous assertion that Berlin has the best street art in the world. The rest of the world disagrees and has challenged them to an International Street Art Contest.

For the next two weeks, we’ll be taking submissions to a Flickr group called Metroblogging Streetart. Be sure to tag your photos with “houston” and “metblogs”. If Flickr isn’t your bag, you can email me your photos with location details and I’ll upload it for you (make sure you let me know if you want your name included or not), no worries.

We’ll vote for the favorite Houston photos from April 18-25 and then the top 3 contenders will make the international round for global voting until we declare the Best Street Art in the World on May 3.

Let me just say that this contest is not about you going out to vandalize something, but rather to document the street art and graffiti that already exists (and will continue to exist regardless of our little contest).

Are you game? Start shooting and uploading your photos to the Metroblogging Streetart group!

    That’s right.

    We are pretty sure we’ll win this with hands tied behind our backs, but we’re so nice and wanted to give everyone the opportunity of hope – at least for a couple weeks. :-)

    Unfortunately Houston has no chance. However, I have over 2,000 images from work on the streets of Houston and will submit some of my favorite shots sometime this weekend.

    Berlin: STFU, not all of us have the luxury of painting without fear of being prosecuted.
