The real value of SXSW is in all the face-to-face connections. Webheads from all over the world come to Austin to network, collaborate, and share. See the joy of geeks finally meeting in person!
The above is a shot of Urlesque’s Kelly Reeves and Eliot Glazer “networking” at Urlesque HQ. It’s also a perfect example of what we want: Your mission is to photograph people or groups of people in which no one is actually interacting but instead are busy looking at their electronic devices. The more people, the better.
Take a photo and and submit it to this Tumblr blog started by Urlesque, AOL’s internet trends and web humor site. (Or join Seed) and then go here to submit your photo and get paid $5 if we publish it.
We’ll be collecting the best photos and featuring them on Urlesque. Think of it like a scavenger hunt. But for the web. But in real life. Kind of.
