There’s an Austin, and Austin on Your Feet, tradition to use the hashtag #atxrising to post pictures of new construction in Austin. This could be anything from parks to single-family homes to downtown high-rises.
For the first time ever, Austin on Your Feet will host a contest! All you have to do to enter is tweet a picture of construction in Austin with the hashtags #atxrising and #atxonyourfeet sometime in the next week to win! It can be a picture you’ve posted previously. If you want to nominate somebody else’s picture, that works too, but the prize will go to the photographer! The top three pictures will win a fabulous urbanist book: Tactical Urbanism by Mike Lydon, The High Cost of Free Parking by Donald Shoup, or The Death and Life of Great American Cities by Jane Jacobs.
So get snapping and get tweeting!
