Visit-Philadelphia-logo-300x50Have a great Philly photo, or think you can capture one? It could show up on a Phillyosophy® billboard on I-95 as part of a contest VISIT PHILADELPHIA™ is conducting to engage Philadelphia fans and give them a chance to show off the city they love.

From July 22 through August 3, shutterbugs can go to or, choose one of six Phillyosophy lines and then upload a photo of their own that goes well with the line of their choice. To select the finalists, VISIT PHILADELPHIA will choose the most compelling photos that pair best with the lines and meet the technical requirements (300DPI). The photos will then appear on the Visit Philly Facebook page and website, where the public can view the photos and vote for their favorite from August 11-17.


“From the start, people have been very engaged with our With Love, Philadelphia XOXO® campaign, and they feel the same about itsPhillyosophy evolution,” says Meryl Levitz, president and CEO, VISIT PHILADELPHIA. “This contest gives Philly locals, visitors and fans a fun way to promote the city.”

The winning photo with a credit to the photographer will be featured on the VISIT PHILADELPHIA billboard located on I-95 in fall 2014. In addition, the winner will receive a prize package that includes:

Two-night stay at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel
Transportation expenses (there’s a reimbursement limit)
$200 gift certificate for Starr Restaurants
$100 gift certificate for the Barnes Foundation
$50 gift certificate for Reading Terminal Market
$50 gift certificate for Open House

VISIT PHILADELPHIA first gave up its I-95 billboard to fans in 2011 when the company ran a write-your-own-billboard contest in support of the popular With Love campaign. More than 2,700 people entered the contest, and the winning line was: Dear Philadelphia, You had me at Yo! With Love, Mary K. XOXO.
