Winner Announced: Picture Something Repurposed

In February, we asked you, the GOOD community, to send us photos of something repurposed. See the winning picture inside.


In February, we asked you, our regular GOOD readers, to send us pictures of something repurposed. The images ranged from an emptied can garden pot, to a sling constructed from an old tweed jacket, to shelves made from old beer boxes. Take a look at the submissions in our Picture Show.

After posting the Picture Show, we asked the community to vote. We’re happy to announce our winner, Lauren Lee. Lauren's vessels of light are not only functional but celebrate the design of the original product, a glass bottle. According to Lauren, "their beautifully curved lines hold sheer elegance that is rarely appreciated during or after consumption."


Lauren will receive a GOOD T-shirt and a free subscription (or gift subscription) to our magazine and her photo will be published in the next issue of GOOD.

Thanks again to everyone for submitting photos and voting on their favorites! Keep tuned for a new project coming soon.

In August, the Recording Academy hired their first female CEO, Deborah Dugan. Ten days before the Grammys, Dugan was placed on administrative leave for misconduct allegations after a female employee said Dugan was "abusive" and created a "toxic and intolerable" work environment. However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
