#pdxmadness Winner

Congratulations to user apdxb for snapping the winning #pdxmadness photo.

INSTAGRAM CONTEST

The Instagram contest encouraged Portlanders to take photos around Portland of things they saw as being prototypical of "Portland." Photos were judged on creativity, style, and how many "Portland" things could fit in a single photo. To enter, all they had to do was to hashtag their photo with #pdxmadness! Check out all the photos tagged #pdxmadness below.

BRACKET CONTEST

We picked 65 of the Most Portland Things About Portland to battle it out in a winner-take-all single-elimination tournament. What one thing defines a city so eclectic, so diverse, and so … weird? How can one thing possibly define an entire city? Is it our abundance of food carts? Our love and near-obsession of microbrewed beer? Or is the Most Portland Thing About Portland something that embodies the city in a more subtle way, like brunch lines, or irony? This tournament will eliminate 64 hopefuls down to the most Portlandia-est thing of all, and only then will we know the answer to that question.

How it Works

From March 3rd until March 20th, this page will be open to you, the public, to fill out your own brackets. Stuff the ballot box and share with friends! Make the hard choices as you choose your winners to advance in the tournament, before finally choosing a winner. You will be able to create an account for the site, so you can come back later and edit your choices if you change your mind (Don't worry, we absolutely will not share your email with anyone, nor will we send you unsolicited spammy emails). Beyond the thrill of choosing the most Portland thing of all, the player (that's you!) who ends up with the most accurate bracket, will win a really awesome Portland prize. See below for more details on that.

On March 20th, the tournament will officially begin, but rather than the matches taking place on the basketball court, they will be determined via votes. This means you can vote for the things YOU picked in your bracket to increase your chances of winning the tournament. Every few days we'll post a new round with the winners advancing on. We'll post the new brackets here on pdxmadness.com and announce the new rounds on Facebook and Twitter. Don't forget to vote in every round! Your bracket has a better chance to win, the more you vote!

Remember, the winner will forever define our dear city, so let your voice be heard!

Play-In Maine

Don't think that we forgot about our sister city in the icy North East! We wanted to give them a chance in the big show, so from March 17 until March 20, we'll have the vote up to see whether Lobsters or Snow get a chance in the tournament in a first-round matchup with a strong 1-seed Hipsters.

Prize

Once the tournament begins on March 20th, all brackets will be locked and will be entered for a chance to win a grand prize, consisting of a gift basket of Portland things.
