ChattanoogaWorks Launch Party

Some of you might have heard me talk about the ChattanoogaWorks project in the past. I’ve been working on it at CreateHere since August. I even gave a presentation on it at Chattanooga’s Pecha Kucha Night on January 22nd. But the wait is over, the time has finally come for the project to offically lauch!

ChattanoogaWorks started out as a small project for myself and several other CreateHere newbies and has transformed into a community wide outreach utilizing all the resources in the CreateHere arsonal. Look for our new public ad campaign to go up around town via CARTA bus ads and several billboards, not to mention this series of posters that have been up for the past couple of weeks around town:

So what does all this mean for Chattanooga? It means it’s time for Chattanoogans to get out their cameras, and submit their photos to the new and improved site, which launches February 20th. This is not a traditional photo contest. It is not strictly for pros or strictly for amateur photographers, we want everyone’s take on Chattanooga. The end goal is not prize money, although winners will be chosen. The goal is to accumulate as many photos as possible to get a unique perspective on Chattanooga and to display these photos in our online gallery and to ultimately compile these photos into a book.

Inspiration for ChattanoogaWorks came from projects like the Next American City and The Everyman Photo Contest.
