V.I.A. contributors are located in many neighborhoods of this great city of ours. From Kits to Cambie, East Van to Dunbar, we’ve tried to put together a fairly diverse team of folks bringing you angles from all points of awesomeness throughout Vancouver.
HOOD WARS is a challenge to our contributors to tell us what makes their neighborhood the most awesomest, and the rules are (as always) quite simple:
– COMMIT TO GATHERING THE TOP 10 THINGS ABOUT YOUR HOOD THAT MAKE IT THE MOST AWESOME.
– MAKE 10 DIFFERENT POSTS OVER 10 WEEKS NAMED “HOOD WAR – [THE NAME OF YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD] #1” and then #2, #3, #4, etc.
– DON’T TALK SHIT ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE’S HOODS IN YOUR POSTS. YOUR HOOD’S AWESOMENESS MUST NOT DEPEND ON YOUR PERCEIVED UN-AWESOMENESS OF ANOTHER HOOD BUT STRICTLY ON THE UNABASHED, RAW FORM OF AWESOME THAT IS YOUR OWN.
– IN THE END ALL OF THE CONTRIBUTORS WILL VOTE ON THE WINNER. THE PERSON (OR PERSONS! YOUR HOOD CAN BE COVERED BY MORE THAN ONE CONTRIBUTOR) WHO PRESENTS THE BEST 10 POSTS THAT CONVINCE US THAT THEIR HOOD REIGNS MOST AWESOME WILL TAKE HOME A PRIZE PACK VALUED AT $200. THERE WILL ALSO BE RUNNER UP PRIZES WORTH A BUNCH. BUT THE GREATEST REWARD SHOULD BE PRESENTING YOUR HOOD IN IT’S FINEST FORM TO THE REST OF THE CITY!
