When you walk into Tampa International Airport, you can't miss the giant, 21-foot flamingo in the main terminal.
With metal panels and lighting attached to the ceiling, it gives the illusion of being underwater while gazing up at the flamingo, which appears to be poking its head beneath the surface. It really is incredible!
The sculpture was created by artist Matthew Mazzotta and is formally titled "HOME," but both the artist and the airport agreed that the flamingo needs a name of its own.
The airport is holding a Name That Flamingo contest, where members of the public are invited to submit suggestions. You now have less than a week to get you suggestion in, enter it online at NameTheFlamingo.com.
The winner of the contest will take home the following prizes:
·4 nonstop, round-trip tickets for themselves and three companions on Silver Airways
·A VIP Experience package to Busch Gardens, including 4 single-day admission tickets, 4 All-Day Dining passes, 4 Quick Queue Unlimited passes, and preferred parking
·A chance to "bask in the limelight" at a reveal event for the flamingo's new name in TPA's main terminal
