Pop App": a social media contest in association with Andy Warhol Museum" onclick="linkClick(this.href)" href="http://www.warhol.org/">The Andy Warhol Museum (The Warhol) of Pittsburgh, PA. The contest launches March 21, 2013 and closes March 31, 2013 at 12am Eastern Daylight Time.
To enter the contest, participants use The Warhol: D.I.Y. Pop App to transform an iconic picture of their culture into a Warhol digital screen print. Entries can be submitted via the Acclaro Facebook account. Specific information on the contest can be seen on the official photo contest web page and sample entries can be viewed on the Acclaro Pinterest account.
"POP Your Culture With The Warhol D.I.Y. Pop App" will have four winners, three of which are hand-selected by Nicholas Chambers, the Milton Fine curator of art of The Warhol. The grand prize will be a trip for two to Pittsburgh including airfare, hotel, museum entrance, and a private tour of the current exhibition. Second and third place winners will receive gift certificates to The Warhol Store (at the museum or online) in the amounts of $300 and $200 respectively.
The fourth winner will be chosen by the public via Facebook after Chambers selects ten finalists. This People's Choice winner will have their submitted image displayed for 24 hours on The Warhol Facebook and Twitter profiles, which have over 550,000 combined followers.
Acclaro presents this contest to celebrate a fruitful partnership with The Warhol, a non-profit arts organization expanding its presence to key cities across Asia. The Warhol first called on Acclaro to translate and localize its education website and materials, as well as The Warhol D.I.Y. POP App, into Chinese and Japanese. The visitor materials and mobile application were used to launch the largest retrospective of Warhol's artwork to travel to Asia, Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal, that opened in Singapore and currently is on view in Hong Kong, with future venues to include Shanghai, Beijing, and Tokyo.
