I'm usually not big on promoting contests, but this one sounds like fun. Arcade, a local Northwest independent architecture and design magazine, is doing a fundraising campaign and asking people to send in their 9 word stories about design.

Deadline for entering is September 30th. Voting is by people's choice. Enter here today!
