Sign of the times: Our weekly Instagram photo contest winner
By Amelia Olson [ Fri Mar 27 2015 2:26 PM ]
Each week we reward one passionate Alibi reader-slash-Instagrammer with $10 in Alibi Bucks. Alibi Bucks can help you get anything from tickets to Naked Food Fair to a sandwich at Cafe Lush and each week we have new deals to spend your bucks on.
This week we asked you to tag us in pictures of your favorite Albuquerque signs and you posted some pretty killer retro signs.
Our second runner up, gq.ninja posted this awesome old school KOB sign. The vintage simplicity is really a sign of the times and we love the bare tree branches in the distance. Thanks for posting!
This week's winner is lettersfromburque's gorgeous picture of the Helen's Bakery sign. We love the backdrop of our dreamy Albuquerque skies and the vibrant turquoise cross against the weathered white wooden sign. Thank you for posting! To collect your prize and Alibi Bucks email Amelia@alibi.com.
Stay tuned for next week's guidelines and if you don't already, follow us on Instagram!

This Week's Feature: Scavenger Hunt 2010 results—with slideshows!
Albuquerque scavengers had 72 hours to locate more than 100 items—find out the victors in this year's hunt.
Full story: 72-Hour Scavenging People
And here are some slideshows of more photos than we had room to put in the paper.
These are Flickr-brand slideshows, so that means (1) You need Flash installed to see them (iPhone users and Flash haters may visit our Flickr galleries directly); and (2) if you want to see the name and caption you have to click the “enlarge” icon and then click the “Show Info” link in the upper-right hand corner. OK, so it’s kinda rocket science. I agree. Blame Flickr.
The Winners: Team Night Rider / Dark Circles
Maybe Next Year You’ll Try Harder ...
... but thanks for playin’! Nice work, all.
