In search of the grandest specimen in the city, GOOD and Hidden Los Angeles have partnered for a new contest to find L.A.'s Most Interesting Vintage Sign. "The most beautiful and bizarre" could mean anything from a a dazzling neon relic to the hand-painted name of your local market to those curious giant letters propped atop Beachwood.

Says GOOD:

Send us your best vintage sign photo, along with a caption letting us know where it was taken and why it spoke to you. It would be awesome if you could tell us a little history about the sign itself, as well. We'll let you use your best judgment when it comes to defining "vintage." But it must be an actual sign: murals, ads, billboards, and street signs are not eligible.

The contest runs through Monday, June 13 and the winner will receive two tickets to the Los Angeles Conservancy's "Last Remaining Seats" film series screening in downtown's historic theaters. Contest submission details here.
