Are you planning to stroll through the Times Square in New York City in the next couple of days? Even if you don’t, you can still put your photo up on Kodak’s big screen on the Square, and – better yet – you can control when it happens.
Kodak is running a promotional campaign in which anyone can have their picture appear on their large screen for 10 seconds. Detailed instructions are over here, but in a nutshell, you need to email a photo firstname.lastname@example.org, and wait for it to get approved (which Kodak promises will be as fast as possible and within a 24-hour period).
Once your photo gets approved, you will receive a code; text it to the number provided, and your picture will appear at the next opportunity – i.e., the next free slot in programming. Your picture, with the accompanying caption, will show up for 10 seconds.
Of course, if this campaign picks up, together with a huge crowd that usually populates the Times Square on New Year’s Eve, it might be hard to put your picture up exactly at midnight. If you miss your timing, don’t worry, you can repeat the whole process up to 6 times over a 30-day period.
