Calgary Herald New Condos - - New Condos - JOSH SKAPIN

Adeveloper’s at­tempt to shine a light on the beauty of Cal­gary’s East Vil­lage be­came a so­cial me­dia hit.

Fram+slokker is the de­vel­oper bring­ing a ma­jor con­do­minium project called First to East Vil­lage.

As a way to drum up in­ter­est in the project and East Vil­lage, it­self, Fram+slokker hosted a pho­tog­ra­phy con­test on Face­book.

A to­tal of 100 en­tries fea­tur­ing creative stills of the his­toric down­town dis­trict were posted on the group’s Face­book page.

The com­pe­ti­tion was judged by the num­ber of “Face­book likes” each photo re­ceived.

Soha Zia’s colour­ful photo de­pict­ing the first vil­lagers nabbed 3,600 likes, earn­ing her a trip for two to Mon­treal plus ac­com­mo­da­tions and $1,500 in spend­ing money.

The sec­ond place prize, a Canon 0S 7D cam­era, was won by Jonathan Zan­tura.

Prizes were awarded dur­ing a re­cent con­test wrapup party. Pho­tos in the con­test earned 12,000 likes com­bined.
