logo for City Block Project 2014 in Charlotte, NC

Every year Sean throws a community-based photo contest on behalf of The Light Factory called City Block Project. Each year a new block is chosen and for 24-hours photographers shoot the block in every way imaginable – the people, the action, the architecture and more. This year’s block was BB&T Ballpark, the new home of the Charlotte Knights, the AAA baseball team now in uptown Charlotte, NC. The event had 35 photographers submit 135 entries. The winners are chosen by the participants – for each one submission a person makes they get two votes and can vote for anyone but themselves. Below are the photos from the winners, some shots from the unveiling party and the announcement at BB&T Ballpark.
