Ring in the New Year with your face on the JumboTron

Kodak will show your celebratory Times Square photos on the big screen.


Planning to cram yourself into Times Square on New Year's Eve with half a million of your closest funbuddies?

Kodak wants to help you kick the drunken revelry up a notch this year. Instead of just hanging out waiting for the energy-efficient ball to drop, you'll be able to upload photos of the festivities to a shared album on Kodak Gallery, which will then be live-streamed--though hopefully moderated--to the JumboTron atop the Marriott Marquis.

Even better, anyone with the mobile Kodak Gallery app will be able to add comments to the shared gallery, in addition to uploading photos. Once again, hopefully moderated.

So if you've always wanted to see your face on Broadway, download the Kodak Gallery app, head to Times Square, and join the group album sometime between 9 p.m. and 1 a.m. by going to http://pix.kg/party.
