AdHack crowdsourcing photos of the Olympics Ads in Vancouver

by Rob Lewis

Vancouver startup AdHack is conducting an experiment to collect the advertising of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games and they want you to participate.

We would like you to upload photos to Flickr of any advertising you see in and around Vancouver and Whistler related to the Winter Olympic Games.

We know you’ve already seen some interesting ads around town, and some of you may have even taken some photos of ads and uploaded them to Flickr without even realizing it.

The ads DO NOT have to be official sponsor advertising; they can be anything you see as being directly related to the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. Plus, we want to see the most original and unique forms of advertising – not just billboards and signs, but crazy window displays, or people wearing sandwich boards – the possibilities are endless. Check out the photos that have been added to the group already.

Near the end of the Olympics, we’ll start a conversation about which ads were most awesome, most effective and even most terrible. We may even have an awards show.

Sound like fun? Start adding your photos to the Flickr group which is almost 700 photos strong. More details on how to participate are available on the AdHack Blog.
