Contest Rules

Empire State of Mind New York, New York what can we say, there’s so much to be said about New York City and New York State itself. If your a New Yorker like myself you would know the ins and out of this state. A place where culture thrives, art music dance, craziness you can name it all, there is no other place like New York.

As we’ve seen though New York is not the same since the pandemic, things have changed drastically, the city that never sleeps is now asleep 😴 and people are ready to escape and put at the time in a negative light. One thing we must remember is it’s rich history and things that have made New York positive! If you were born before 1990 you would’ve seen the changes it’s gone through even more, how about 2001! Definitely changed a lot... it is now September and in this month September is special remembrance of the those who lost their lives and also a city who’s lost its touch.

In tribute of this month surrounding September 11th, I would like all to post images of a positive time when New York thrived and also images joined in their efforts to save a broken city.

You may post in the form of photography and painting.


Please do not post nude images they will be removed!

Have fun

Be encouraging

Have a safe week and weekend!
