You can tell a lot about a person by their front door. Well, maybe not, since a lot of different families live behind each one. But anyway, there are a lot of good doors out there. And ICYMI last month, Brownstoner launched an Instagram challenge asking readers to submit pictures of their favorite Brooklyn doors, in order to commemorate the work of late artist Joseph Lee Sweeney, famed for his 2004 poster, “The Doors of Brooklyn.”

Opportunity still knocks, brokesters: there are two days left to submit a photo of a door to the competition! Winners will have their photo memorialized on a new “The Doors of Brooklyn” poster to be revealed on Sweeney’s birthday, October 24.

In order to submit, just put your door photo on Instagram, tag @brownstoner and use hashtag #thedoorsofbrooklyn in the subject line. If you’d prefer, you can also email the photo directly to maude [at] brownstoner [dot] com.

30 pictures will be chosen, so if you’ve got a good door, you’ve got a good chance! Happy snapping.
