What an amazing first week in our #YVRSpotters contest! We received more than 100 submissions through Facebook, twitter, Instagram and flickr, and it was extremely difficult trying to narrow down a winner. For the first week we tried to compile a lot of the submissions in to a Facebook album, and whittled it down to 10 finalists before selecting a winner. If you want to see all the Instagram submissions you can search the hashtag #YVRspotters and there's a very active Facebook group that is open to the public called YVR Spotters as well. First place gets a YVR Prize Pack, second and third some YVR bucks to spend in terminal. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive your prize. Thanks to all those who submitted, can't wait for next week's pics!
