55th anniversary photo caption contest

In honor of our upcoming 55th Anniversary celebration in Portland, OR on May 6th, we have plumbed the depths of our photo archives. The results? A surprising number of hilarious and mysterious JVC Northwest memories. This photo, in particular, made us here in the JVC Northwest office ask ourselves, ” What was going on?!

That’s where you come in! We’re proud to announce the first annual JVC Northwest Photo Caption Contest! Please submit your proposed captions via the comments section. Over the next week, they will be evaluated by our expert panel of judges (each holding a PhD in Hilariousness) and on Wednesday, April 18 we will announce the winner, who will receive the grand prize of instant fame and notoriety.

What were they thinking?

Happy captioning!
