Vancouver 2010 / Tickets Giveaway

Ok, I can’t believe I’m about to do what I’m about to do.

As you are all aware, the 2010 Olympics begin here in Vancouver this week, and if you live here, you know how difficult it has been to get tickets. Well my friends, I have tickets. And not just any tickets. I have a pair of tickets to the 2010 Olympics Men’s Hockey Semi-Finals courtesy of BC Hydro’s Power Smart Village (opens February 10th).

Hockey is the only event I really care about and I would gladly do some very bad things to go to any of the Olympic hockey games, but I’ve decided to give these tickets to you instead.

Vancouver 2010 Olympics Men's Hockey Ticket Giveaway Booooooom art blog

Want to win them?

1. Take a photo of yourself wearing a hockey jersey. You must have two thumbs up in the photo! Bonus points for vintage jerseys!

(note: bonus points are meaningless and will not increase your chances, but I will think you’re really cool and if you’re a girl maybe I’ll call you sometime).

2. Email me the photo with the subject: “HOCKEY TICKET GIVEAWAY and include the following information:

Full Name
Phone Number
Mailing Address
Email Address

  • Jeff!

    My boyfriend and I live here in Vancouver, barely scraping by in this most expensive city. But we moved here from small town Alberta to do our thing – he screen-prints, just started up his own company (www.equinoxapparel.com), and I just opened a gallery with my best girls (see link). Life isn’t always easy out here, but it wasn’t always easy back home either! Like every good Albertan boy, my guy played hockey for most of his youth – driving hours to practice, jogging miles a day, living, breathing hockey. He ended up joining a band and that became his focus for a long time, but since moving to Vancouver has become all nostalgic for his hockey days – reading up on the history of the game, telling me stories about the most exciting games of all time (Canada vs. Soviet Union in the 70s), and watching the games when we can. We can’t really afford to attend the Canucks games, let alone an Olympic game – the best hockey game to be seen! But I know I would have one heck of a happy man if we could sit in that arena together. Thanks for doing this, you’ll make some lucky people totally stoked!
    Love,
    Tarah

    Hey Jeff!

    For some reason, my computer isn’t letting me into to your “Email me” link. Is it possible to give me your e-mail here?

    Or if for some reason you can’t, just e-mail me your address?

    Thanks so much!

    Alison.

Here’s this month’s Reader Submissions post! Please share your work here if you’d like to be considered for a feature on Booooooom. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

One of the things that makes Booooooom unique is all the encouraging comments people send back and forth on these monthly submission posts. If you’re going to share your work please take an extra second to leave a nice comment on someone else’s work!

Voting up work is like high-fiving that person and it also helps us see what work you guys like! Remember, even if your work isn’t featured on the main site these posts can send some decent traffic to your portfolio! The link at the bottom will open up this full post, simply scroll down and use the commenting system to submit your work.

 

Submission guidelines:

 1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
