Are you ready for the Selfie Olympics?
Yup, you did not misread that.
What can be a somewhat nod to the upcoming 2014 Winter Olympics people are taking to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter , and other social media apps to partake in its own sporting events, of sorts, and participating in the first annual #SelfieOlympics.
If you don’t know what a selfie, that’s is quite shocking, but do not worry because we can tell you that it is a “type of self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone.”
How can you participate in the Selfie Olympics? Well, there appears to be two ways.
First, you take one of the anticipated sporting events from the upcoming XXII Olympic Winter Games (22nd Winter Olympics) and using your phone take a creative picture portraying said event. Or at least come close to making a selfie which portrays the event listed.
And the second, you merely try to take the most absurd and shocking selfie you can think of that can be your own Olympic-inspired shot to post for all to see and rank.
What you do is, in the traditional form of a selfie, find a bathroom and think of the most crazy and creative selfie you can think of that will be able to outdo the others and hashtag: “SelfieOlympic” and see whether or not you gain the honored status of Olympian Selfie.
