Bloomsday Photo Competition
Inspired by the iconic picture of Marilyn Monroe reading Ulysses and in preparation for Bloomsday, the MVP initiated the Bloomsday Photo Competition on Facebook. Joyce fans from Canada and the States posted their own photography on the theme, “Reading Ulysses,” with participants reading on Skype, on a mountain top, and on the toilet! The winners were announced at the Year of Ulysses and MVP Launch on June 15. For most Facebook likes, the winner was David Oswald. For distance from Dublin and Victoria, the winner was Aguinaldo Severino. Thank you for all submissions!
