Photos taken by citizens decorate transformer cabinets
The competition was organized by Helen Sähköverkko, a subsidiary of the Helsinki energy company Helsingin Energia. Helen Sähköverkko is in charge of electricity transmission and distribution in the Helsinki region.
Photos were submitted on Instagram with hashtag #meidänHelsinki (our Helsinki). By the closing of the competition, more than 1,500 photos had been tagged with #meidänHelsinki. Close to 200 of the photos can now be seen on about 20 transformer cabinets around the city in collages compiled by Helen Sähköverkko. (Text source: Hel.fi)
As an experiment I tagged a couple of my photos to this competition under my Instagram nickname Valokiila.
It was a nice surprise to hear that two of my photos were among winners and can now be seen on transformer cabinets at Bulevardi 6 (photo of Vispilä paddlesteamer) and Hietalahdenkatu 2 (photo of Suomenlinna Library) :-)
