Metropolis Plays Holiday Photo Dress-Up


1212photoHoliday photos are great and all, but there’s always room for improvement. Metropolis at Metrotown is giving shoppers lots of ways to make their holiday photos even better, and it’s handing out big prizes in the process.

The center’s Holiday Photo Maker lets shoppers upload or take a fresh photo and then make it positively holidayriffic. With the help of a web app, they can add Santa hats or reindeer antlers, each reconfigurable into the right angle and size. They can add holiday borders. Playing dress-up with Santa’s beard is popular, but there are also more traditional decorations—Christmas trees, poinsettias, gingerbread men and the like.

Once their masterpieces are complete, shoppers can save the photo or share it on Facebook or Twitter. Just making one photo earns a shopper one ballot in the draw for a $1000 shopping spree. Metropolis judges are keeping a close eye on entries, and each that’s approved for the center’s public gallery earns its creator another 10 ballots and a chance to win a weekly $250 gift card.

But the Holiday Photo Maker is not just a fire-and-forget experience. Each week it runs, the center is releasing promo codes on their social channels. Those codes, when entered into the contest website, give shoppers 10 more ballots. More importantly, they unlock more holiday elements for aspiring holiday photo artists. By the time the contest ends, we can expect to see truly magnificent works of holiday overindulgence.
