Congratulations to JDAC of Plano, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Not only did he take the photo, he also reworked a verse of the song that inspired it:
I’m gonna fight ’em off
A Gummi Nation Army couldn’t hold me back
They’re gonna rip it off
Taking their time right behind my back
He follows last week’s winner, Susan Chadbourne.
If you would like to participate, all you need to do is upload your photo to to our Flickr group page. It’s fine to submit a photo you took previous to the current week, but we are hoping that the contest will inspire you to go out and shoot something fantastic this week to share with Art&Seek users. If the picture you take involves another facet of the arts, even better. The contest week will run from Monday to Sunday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Monday afternoon. We’ll notify the winner through FlickrMail (so be sure to check those inboxes) and ask you to fill out a short survey to tell us a little more about yourself and the photo you took. We’ll post the winners’ photo on Wednesday and Gini Mascorro will read your name on the air at the end of her daily arts calendar.
Now, here’s more from Darren:
Title of photo: Gummi Nation Army
Equipment: Body – Canon Digital Rebel XS. Lens – Kit lens Canon EFS 18-55mm
Tell us more about your photo: The idea came to me while making my way through a bag of gummi bears while listening to the White Stripes song “Seven Nation Army.” I finally got around to setting it up on a lazy Sunday, and after some recalcitrant soldiers gave their lives for the cause, I had the troops lined up.
