To enter the online contest, contestants will need an account on, a free photo sharing site, and, a free video sharing site. Individuals do not have to enter the contest to share their digital photos or videos. Links to images, video, photo galleries or blogs can be sent to frefair (at) yahoogroups (dot) com.

Contest themes are listed on the View-Point Blog:

"There are oodles of online digital photos and blog accounts that the mega search engines just do not pick up," states JOlmsted, the online digital Seattle Summer 2005 Events contest organizer. "Our growing online community provides an easy, free, non-restricted site for everyone to share diverse view points as well as celebrate individual’s creative use of digital recording mediums. Online photo/video contests have already been created for the Fremont Parade/Fair and the Seattle Pride Parade/Festival where thousands of images are now available to an international audience. Hopefully, next year the local media (TV, Radio, Newspapers) and/or event organizers will provide an online outlet for attendees to share their experiences."

About the Bite Of Seattle

Running since 1982 - when the first Bite attracted 75,000 - the event has become quite an institution on the food and drink circuit, offering the chance to discover new world recipes and enjoy the downright delicious grub. It moved to Seattle Center in 1986 and now annually attracts something in the region of 450,000 over its three days.

Hosting over 60 restaurants, the event cooks up an extraordinary set of statistics: there are over 3.5 miles of gas pipes laid to enable the cooking; 15 miles of electric cable; 2000 gallons of hot water used; 175,000 pounds of ice for the 12,000 gallons of pop and - perhaps most importantly - 365 kegs of beer!

Contest Information

An expanding prize list, theme categories, corresponding blogs, links, photos, files and more information, is now available on the Yahoo Group FreFair - and the View-Point Blog -
