Photo Contest: Let's Give the Bay Bridge Some Love!

We hate to admit it, but sometimes we treat the Bay Bridge like the ugly step-sibling of San Francisco bridges. It might not have the name recognition or quirky color of the city's famed Golden Gate, but our other bridge is pretty spectacular in its own right. 

Built in 1936, the Bay Bridge is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year and we want to show it some love too. In honor, we're hosting a photo contest. Other than the adoration of your friends, the Grand Prize Winner will receive a pair of tickets to Erykah Badu on NEW YEARS EVE at the Fox Theater in Oakland, courtesy of Another Planet Entertainment
