[Photo Contest] Need a Better Place to Work?

With today’s growing mobile workforce more and more people are working from untraditional workspaces such as their kitchen or coffee shops. Here in Boston we’ve even seen people working from rafts in the Fort Point Channel.

In an effort to help fuel this mobile workforce of independent workers, freelancers, startups and entrepreneurs and increase awareness of the availability of co-working spaces, we’ve teamed up with Deskwanted, a global network of coworking spaces and shared offices offering their desks to independent workers, and Gidsy, an online skills and experience sharing platform, for an exciting (and super easy) photo competition.

What do I have to do?

1. Take a photo of yourself or a friend (you need consent…) working in a ridiculous situation.

2. Tweet the photo to @Deskwanted on Twitter with the hashtag #NeedABetterPlace

3. That’s it! All photos submitted will be put in a Facebook album, to be laughed at for many months to come, with due credit given to the entrant.

What will I win?

One lucky winner will receive a complimentary placement to the value of $100 for an activity listed on Gidsy, in any city they choose. Art and culture tour of NYC? Turkish food class in Istanbul? It’s up to you.

All entrants will also go into a drawing to win a lifetime account to Grasshopper. The top ten best entries will receive a $100 discount on all Grasshopper services. Yup, you read that correctly.

In addition, the very best 12 photos that are submitted will be included in a coworking calendar, hung in coworking spaces around the world. Awesome, right?

You have until September 30th to get your pictures in. Good luck!
