[Update] Elance Spotlight: The View From Your Office

With only one week left to submit your photos for our Elance Spotlight: View From Your Office contest, we wanted to point out the new Flickr badge in the right sidebar of this page and the rest of the Elance Blog. Underneath the Blog Topics box, you should see a Flickr box with three thumbnail images—those are Elance users! Click on any of them to be taken to our Elance_Flickr page, and you can browse through all of our contest submissions!

Want to enter this month’s contest? Here’s what you need to know:


  • Go to the place where you do your online work—it could be your kitchen, your home office, a park bench, a cafe, the beach, etc. Snap a photo of your view.
  • Make sure it's a .jpg file and no larger than 1 MB in size.
  • Email it to elance_spotlight@elance.com with the subject line "Elance Spotlight - [your Elance username]"
  • In the body of your email, tell us your:
    • Elance username
    • City and country
    • One sentence caption of what we're looking at (optional)

  • Announce it to the world! Use your Twitter, Facebook, Digg, or any other social channel of your choice to share your view with the world. Post it on our Facebook Page or upload and tweet @elance with hashtag #ElanceSpotlight.
  • We'll compile the photos and create a public album to share with the world! Check our weekly updates to make sure we've received your submission.
  • Three winners will randomly be selected and will each receive a new Amazon Wi-Fi Kindle.
  • Submissions will be taken until Tuesday, July 5 at noon PT, and the winners will be announced that week.
  • Limit one submission per unique Elance user.
  • Any submissions deemed offensive or inappropriate will be disqualified.

Time is running out, so make sure you put those cameras to use!



Hi Elance,

Fun contest! I submitted a photo via email June 24th and tweeted with your hashtag June 30th. I noticed the photos in the Flickr stream haven't been being updated weekly however. Just checking to see if you got my submission.
