Since its first round in September of 2012, The Arcade has held a photography contest to highlight the incredible talent of their vendors and shoppers. Entries were encouraged to be “fun, nostalgic, quirky or dramatic,” and participants were instructed to include at least five items from The Arcade in their submissions. In the four years that followed, The Arcade received over 1,500 submissions throughout the contest’s run. The response was overwhelming, but round by round, The Arcade’s owners sifted through these amazing entries and winners were chosen based upon originality, technical excellence, composition, overall impact, and artistic merit. By the time the contest came to a close in October of 2016, 51 winners had been selected. Today, The Arcade invites you to celebrate these winners with an upcoming exhibit, aptly titled #WINNING.
The exhibit runs December 4, 2016 – January 15th, 2017 at The Vordun Museum and Gallery. The Vordun is an art and history museum within Second Life that provides a real-world gallery experience in a virtual setting. Using experience keys, audio tours, a variety of real life and Second Life art, and exhibits with original construction and design, The Vordun brings to Second Life a truly unique experience.
