The ElePHPants are going on tour

September 8th, 2008 by Ivo

Cal Evans and I recently had a wild idea involving ElePHPants and pictures. Since we're usually not very busy people anyway, we converted the idea into a little site:

(Well, 'we': Cal did the coding, I just added the text and the logos; I guess organizing ZendCon must be very easy this year ;-) )

We got our companies and a bunch of other companies to sponsor some prizes so we could turn this into a contest.

So take your elephpants and your camera to ZendCon, IPC, PHPNW, php|works etc, or just take them with you on your next vacation, and show us the adventures of your elephpant! The site's About page contains more information and the instructions.

See also Cal's blog post about ewt08.

Have fun!

    Take three elephants, put them in some clothes to give them individuality and hend them out to three participants of the next PHP conference. These three participants should take photos with the elephant on different places where they go until they go to another PHP conference, where they hand over the elephants to somebody else.

    The photos of the elephants should be tracked on a Map to show the travelroute of these three individual elephants.

    Of course you must throw in a new elephant from time to time when one get lost.
