Last year, the success of this event reached national media coverage! This year, we’ve partnered with United Neighborhood Center’s after school program to make the event even better! Similar to previous years, our online event will challenge our community to decorate potholes. New for this year: Online semi-finalists will advance to a physical gallery exhibit, where the winner will be crowned.
Our goal for the event is to invite the community to look past the negativity associated with those pesky tire-poppers and to reinvent the concept of a pothole. To get started, find your favorite pothole in and around Scranton and turn it into something positive! You can submit your photos right here. But hurry, you have until 11:59PM on May 18th to enter!
Look past those pesky tire-poppers! Start to reinvent the concept of a pothole by decorating and embellishing this rock cavity. Get creative and have fun with it! Most of all don’t forget to take a snazzy photo of your new master piece.
If you’ve played your cards right up until this point, and you have earned enough votes to be within the top entries submitted, you are eligible for the second round of voting at our “Pothole” gallery.
On May 23rd, the top entries from the online portion will be displayed in our very own “Pothole” gallery, for round #2 of voting. The exhibit will feature the top photos as chosen by our online voters. Once qualified for the exhibit, everyone is back to an even playing field- you’re not as popular as you were online. It’s up to you to get all of your family, friends, and random people of Scranton to attend the day of and vote on their favorite and most creative submission at the gallery. The overall contest winners will be determined by this final public vote.
