Exploring the Selfie Phenomenon

Selfiest City: Not only is this city the selfie capital of California, but it was ranked fourth in the world as the most popular spot to take one. Anaheim records 147 selfie takers per 100,000 according to the listing from TIME magazine. In comparison, San Francisco and San Diego can boast 91 and 35 selfie takers respectively.

Art of Selfies: Whether it’s Ellen DeGeneres at the Oscars or Van Gogh and his dozens of self-portraits, the concept is as old as the history of art. Dive into visual and written presentations of the self with a free seminar from The Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art on Saturday, April 12 beginning at 1 p.m.

Winning Selfie: Posting your selfie can score some pretty interesting prizes. If you’re a fan of the Kalamazoo Growlers, you could get your mug on a player’s uniform. But if you don’t want to travel to Michigan you could score a gift certificate to the Best of Monterey County. By the looks of the entries, using one of the “best of” as your location and getting the weekly in the shot may help. Deadline April 3.
