7x7 Wants Your Love Letters to Noe Valley

Some magazines are cutting their print budgets; society-loving 7x7 is getting creative and asking its humble readers (even as far afield as Noe) to help them build an entire issue:
7x7’s upcoming Neighborhoods Issue—a groundbreaking portrait of the city’s top 10 neighborhoods—will be our most exciting issue yet. Rather than write and photograph the neighborhoods from our point of view, this time, we’re going straight to the people that know the city inside and out: YOU. For this collectors’ issue, we’re asking San Franciscans to send us their telling photos or a 300-word “love letter” to their neighborhood—one that captures its heart and soul, glamour and grit.

We’ll be publishing the most compelling photos and the 10 best essays in the magazine itself. Our submission deadline is Friday, June 5. The contributors of the best write-up and photograph will win tickets to Outside Lands in August.
Other prizes include free subscriptions to the magazine and bragging rights. More details here. Have at it folks.

Update: You can follow the love here.
