#CityHallSelfie and #CityHomeSelfie day on August 14, 2020 was a huge success – people from across the world took a minute to snap a selfie in front of their local government building or from their home office. We’ll announce some winners each day so we can remember all of the great selfies that were shared on the big day.
Huge thanks to our friends at Bang the Table for supporting this year’s winners with some great prize packs that will be mailed later this months to the winners in each category.
Also, nominations and voting for the People’s Choice #CityHallSelfie #CityHomeSelfie are now open!

Best Hat in a #CityHallSelfie
Tell the truth, everyone wears a tiara while updating #OpenData on @ELGL50 #CityHomeSelfie day. Tiaras make the dirty data easier to deal with, right? #CitiesWinWithData #CityHallSelfie #BigOnLittleRock pic.twitter.com/srVjR21AQD
