Everyone is taking selfies, from Ellen's Oscar selfie that temporarily broke Twitter to this "song" by The Chainsmokers, it's definitely the hot trend of the moment. Google wanting to have some April Fool's fun introduced the Shelfie yesterday which is a shareable shelfie theme, don't be selfish with your selfies—it was a great joke and we also liked this awesome picture of local gold medal snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg to introduce the theme.
While selfies aren't new (the first selfie according to Wikipedia was in 1839 by Robert Cornelius), they do seem to be here to stay and we wanted to get in on the fun. Starting today, April 2, you can submit your best selfie on Instagram and enter our Face Of New Utah contest for a chance to win a spot on Salt Lake magazine's September/October cover, a four page fashion spread in the issue, and gift certificates and prizes from local boutiques. To enter go here, for contest rules go here. Now, I gotta run and go take another selfie.
