Organizers for WAMBO are encouraging the community to share there fun photos and videos all weekend long at Wallaceburg’s signature event.
The WAMBO committee will be sharing all of the action on social media this year all throughout the event.
The committee is setting up a ‘media trailer’ right downtown to help with the task.
“This year we are setting up a media trailer so we all have a home where we can come and download everything we have,” said Brian Armitage, a WAMBO director and manager of photography.
“We are changing it up a little bit this year. We are doing segments with a GoPro. We are still waiting on word on insurance for this, but if everything works out, we are going to have a drone having some footage as well.”
Armitage said the idea for the media trailer is for all of the WAMBO photographers to come, download their photos and video right away.
“Hopefully we will be able to capture it in real time and get it out there,” he said.
In total, there will be about six photographers/videographers roaming through the event on behalf of WAMBO.
Aaron Hall, a WAMBO director and manager of sponsorship, said he hopes to see all the ‘community photographers’ using their smart phones and captuing the event as well.
“We’re encouraging everyone to tag WAMBO on Facebook and Twitter, along with using the hashtag #WAMBO29 to help share all of the amazing things happening for the event here in Wallaceburg,” Hall said.
New this year for WAMBO, they’ve created Instagram and Snapchat accounts to further increase their social media presence as well.
“Once again, we’re asking everyone to tag WAMBO, both on Instagram and Snapchat, and have some fun with it,” Hall said.
Plans are still being ironed out to have a special Snapchat Geofilter, specifically for WAMBO, available as well.
The committee is just awaiting confirmation from the company.
