Metroblogging Streetart Contest

We hereby invite you to take part in the first International Metroblogging Streetart Contest.

Streetart is a fancy name for Graffiti. I’ve never seen any Graffiti in Tokyo either, but hey, we like challenges.

Thanks to till in Berlin for this.

In his words, here is how it works:

Metroblogging means global, which implies that all submissions of participating cities will first run against each other “locally” and then the top compete on a global level to find out where’s the hottest spot for streetart in the world.

To participate, follow those steps:

1) We setup a flickr pool – metroblogging streetart

Feel free to join.

Each one of your submission should make it in the pool. If you don’t have/like Flickr – feel free to email them in to tokyometblog’at’yahoo’dot’com – I’ll post them for you. In this case, let me know whom to give credit to (photographer and streetartist).

2) The contest runs for two weeks. Then a voting process will start to find a city’s Top 3 streetart pieces.

3) After the local heros are chosen, we run another global contest to crown king of all. Top of the world, Master of the Universe – you know the deal! The Top 3 from each city will enter this contest. Watch this blog for more information.

    Thanks Max. I think it will take me 2 weeks just to find 1 piece of Street Art here. Didn’t see any today in Shibuya…
    Good luck to Berlin!

    Check under bridges near Yoyogi Park if you have a chance. Some of the most memorable painted street art I’ve seen in Tokyo was to be found around Yoyogi. It never stayed up long, what with Meiji and all, but if you’re lucky you might find something really spectacular.

    Finding good street art in Tokyo depends on the definition, doesn’t it. I’m supposing it has to be amateur work, preferably done on the sly after midnight. Not an easy challange!

    there truly was a lot more street art a few years ago in and around tokyo – especially the shibuya area. there is less now but still a fair amount around. its just not in your face on the high street – but that’s the same the world over. for the best stuff you have to go off the main drag, have an adventure, take your camera and your eyeballs…
