Footwear Expo, Contests & More!

If you haven't heard already there is a very big thing happening in the shoe world very soon! The inaugural SL Footwear Expo is specifically designed to showcase the many amazing shoe designers around the grid and to raise money for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).

The event will run from July 12th through July 27th, 2008. Sixty-five Shoe designers from across the grid will be showcasing their creations (some with new items introduced at the expo!) and helping to sponsor and support the benefit. In addition there will be a fashion show, musical entertainment, a photography contest and exhibit, a huge raffle, and a massive blow-out party at the end of the Expo. Yay!

Questions should be directed to Phoenix Chapman, Coordinator.

One of the exciting events planned at the Expo is a Photo Contest!

Anyone may enter the contest, with as many pictures as they like, wearing any shoes that they like. The shoes should be the focus of the picture.

Twenty finalists will be chosen for display at the fair. The twenty finalists will be chosen by a panel of judges. No two pictures will be by the same person.

The final winner will be chosen by anyone who votes at the fair! Note that anyone caught campaigning for votes will be disqualified from the contest.

There will be a grand prize winner, a runner up and a second runner up.

Deadline: photos for contest must be submitted no later than midnight July 10th slt.

20 Photos will be selected by a judging panel as finalists These top 20 photos will be displayed at the Footwear Expo Voting will take place at the Expo and is open to anyone attending grand prize and 1st and 2nd place runners up will be determined by vote, voting will be open from July 13th through close of the expo July 26th.

As a special project I am working with the event coordinators to compile a Timeline Display, that will showcase all types of footwear. I need lots of help... so if you love shoes, are handy with a camera and want to get involved click over to the shoe expo blog and get the details on what I am looking for. You can be part of SL shoe history!
