foursquare Asks Users for ‘I Just Checked In’ Videos, Photos

foursquare thinks its users ought to be in pictures — moving pictures, that is.

The location-based mobile app has put out the call for users to upload videos of their favorite check-ins, with the best to appear in a foursquare “greatest hits” video.

Still photos are also being accepted via the “I Just Checked In” Community Video Flickr page, and videos can be uploaded to the YouTube page of the same name. Submissions are due by Friday, Sept. 16, at noon ET.

More from a post on the foursquare Blog:

We love hearing user stories about how checking in impacts your life: marriage proposals via foursquare, saving lots of bucks via Specials, discovering new spots around you via Explore. And while we love seeing the tweets and blog posts, we want to put faces to those stories. So, we’re putting together a supercut of your favorite check-ins.

Submit your “I just checked in” clip by uploading a response to our video on YouTube, and don’t forget to include the hashtag #4sqVid in all of your tweets, photos, videos, and check-ins!

Don’t have a video camera or video phone? Not a problem. Just get a picture of you checking in to your favorite venue and send us a link to the photo by commenting on this Flickr page.

Pro tip for having your clip included: Make sure to keep it short and sweet (under 10 seconds) and tell us why you checked in. Be creative! Have fun with it! Make sure to upload it by next Friday (Sept. 16) at noon ET so we can start editing. What are you waiting for?
