Contest winner gets trip
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.
