Irwin's Community Photo Contest

What thing, person*, memory, or item do YOU love or find interesting when you come to Irwin's??
In the first of what will be many community challenge events, we present to you the Irwin's Community Photo Contest.

We invite patrons (and future patrons!) at all of our locations (including the soon-to-open Greenlake shop) to submit photos of your Irwin's experience!

The idea: We're collecting pictures of Irwin's- inside or out! We hope to capture our customer's experience- things they may love or find interesting (or just photographable!) about our cafes or their time spent in them.

All photos will be compiled, posted to our facebook page, and juried. The winner will receive a free specialty food item of their choice (be it slice of pie, cookie, slice of cake, gooey cinnimon roll, salad, sandwich, breakfast or lunch item, whatever they may crave), their picture will be displayed in the shop, AND we'll post an interview with the winning artist or writeup about the winning photo on our blog.

The most important rule: Be respectful- Ask PERMISSION of any and all people who may be included in your shot.
Submit images to Cara at our Wallingford location, send as a facebook message, or email to: (all photos must be sent electronically or submitted physically to our staff. For the duration of this contest, all photo wall posts will be disabled on our facebook page)
Photo image quality will not be a factor in determining the winner. Cellphone cameras, pinhole photography, polaroids, DSLRs... all types welcome!
Submissions will be accepted through Thursday, March 31st.
Have fun, get creative! We look forward to seeing our shops through the lens of our community!

*again, Ask PERMISSION of any and all people who may be included in your shot!!
