To celebrate the recent launch of Amazon’s new Kindle Paperwhite, I thought it would be fun to do something I haven’t done in a while…
Hold a contest! *cue claps and gasps from the audience*
Your submission should include your picture, a punchy caption of 20 words or less, and a brief description of what part of the book inspired you to take the picture. The picture does not, however, need to be representative of that particular place in the book at all. It only needs to be, as I said, creative. Your photo can make me cry, it can make me laugh, and it might even make me say, “What?”
Photos should be appropriate for all audiences, so please, no nude photos… you would think I wouldn’t need to put this disclaimer out there, but Lisa’s learned it’s always better to be on the safe side ;)
Submissions should be sent to lisa AT lmstull DOT com with “A Picture Says A Thousand Words Photo Contest – [your name]” in the subject line.
The body of the email should include the following:
- Your caption
- The scene in the book where inspiration struck you
- Your name
- Your email address
- Your Twitter handle (if applicable)
Submissions open TODAY and run through October 31, 2012 at midnight Eastern Standard Time. I will then review all submissions to determine the winners. The winners will be notified by email and a post sharing the winning photos and announcing the winners will go up November 15, 2012. Prizes will be sent out shortly thereafter.
Who can submit? Submissions are open to readers in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, and Australia.
- First place takes home Amazon’s brand new Kindle Paperwhite and a $25 Amazon gift card to start downloading some books!
- Second place takes home a $25 amazon gift card.
- Third place takes home a $10 gift card.
So what do you do now? You get to reading, modeling, and being creative.
Questions? Hit me up in the comments below, email me, or stalk me on one of the many social media sites I frequent.
Until October 31st, Happy Contest Entering!
