I am taking up the LIGHT UP the NIGHT Challenge.

The challenge is to get as many buildings as possible in your country to light up with one of the 3 colours used on May 12th – blue, PURPLE or green.

light up the night

Of course, I’m supporting going all out for PURPLE!

We’ll all be winners but there will be bragging rights awarded to the country with the most photos in each of these categories:
1. # of Public Buildings/Places
2. # of Private Residences

What started as a friendly challenge between Canada and Northern Ireland has now grown to be international. This will be the first time Australia has competed, and I have humbly taken the opportunity to co-ordinate on our behalf. All details are available on the Event page.

The contest will be adjudicated by May Twelfth and final results posted on the May 12th International Awareness Day page.

We want public buildings/places like City Halls, Niagara Falls and we want individual homes lit up too!

So far, I’ve contacted the Arts Centre Melbourne (for the Spire), Parliament House and the Royal Exhibition Buildings in Victoria. I have also tried to contact the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. We have some other groups looking at places on the Gold Coast to light up.
