It’s simple: take a photo of the place in which you do your work. Folks in regular offices or cubicles can enter, if you like, but we’re really interested in the non-traditional workspaces like coffee shops, coworking facilities, and city parks. It’s up to you if you want to be in the picture or not. Email the photo, along with your complete name, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Use the subject line “My office picture”. If you don’t use that subject line, you won’t be eligible to win.
We’ll pick a random winner on Wednesday, around noon Eastern time.
