Occasionally on my commute home from work to Richmond, instead of heading down Granville, I swing westward along Burrard St. and past the Molson Brewery. An icon that has been part of the Kitsilano skyline for some time, I noticed a while back that white banners with pictures had been hung on the side of the building. Not really knowing what it was, I simply filed it under the “things that make you hmmm..” category and continued to drive on.

Well after following @MolsonFerg on twitter, I discovered that it was actually going to be “one of the largest ever photo mosaic constructed in Canada” and Molson was looking for people like me to submit pictures to contribute to it’s success.

So being the swell guy I am, I headed to Molson Canadian 2010 Mural Project to sign-up and and submit my mug for consideration. Although I have yet to hear back (likely due to the fact I failed to update my Molson Insider email address – it still had my way old telus.net one), I don’t think my picture was up to snuff as I noticed someone standing in the background. Why is that a problem you ask? Well that’s because there are some rules silly:

  1. Must be a JPEG.
  2. A large image with only you in it – no one else in the background.
  3. Needs to be a profile/headshot.
  4. No logos, signs, gang signs, obscene content.
  5. No drinking scenes.
  6. You’re supposed to have your game face on.

So there you go. I’m still hoping that it’s just taking a long time for my picture to be accepted, but considering I think I broke rule number two (seriously, she’s like in the way and everything and I didn’t notice her standing there) I’m doubtful my picture will make it to the banner. But what’s stopping your mug from gracing the Kitsilano skyline? That’s right. Nothing. Head over to the Mural Project and sign-up. And once you’re up there, stop by and let me know so I can at least say I know someone up there.
