So what is the Philips Livable Cities #pinyourcity contest?
Bringing together urban dwellers and city aficionados from across the world, the competition will crowdsource reasons why people find their cities “livable and lovable”. For some of us, it is a great chance to see where other cities are winning on a citizen level (and perhaps give each of us the kick necessary to go and visit the places we are intrigued about). For others, it is a chance to win some great prizes and who wouldn’t want that? (The winner receives a ‘Health and well-being pack’ [worth €1,000], the 3 runners-up bag themselves ‘Health and well-being packs’ [worth €500 each] and the 6 next runners-up win ‘Health and well-being products’ [worth €100 each])
I have been asked to sit on the panel of judges for the competition amongst other esteemed guests from Fast Company, It’s Nice That, We Heart, BMW Guggenheim Lab and more so I will be the Urban Times go-to guy for any questions or inspirational needs. Above is my submission image for the contest where I wanted to capture the speed and diversity of life in London, which is extremely important to my comfort levels, day-to-day life and respect for the city.
Team up with me on Pinterest by repinning some of my images to your board and be sure to send me tweets to: @charliehilton if you want me to check your board out.
