There's a great new web magazine called The Spartan Opinion. They're having a holiday photo contest so I thought I'd spread the word.
Spartan Holiday Photo Request
It’s that time of year. Soon villages, towns, and cities all over the world will be decorating for the holiday season. The Spartan Opinion, as part of its global initiative, wants to share photos of holiday decorations worldwide and we need your help. Once your area is decked out in all its holiday glory, take a picture and send it to us. If you live in one town and work in another, take pictures of both. Visiting a nearby town? Take a picture there too. If you take a trip, send a picture from your destination. Have family and friends that live in different locations? Ask them to send a photo as well. Once you’ve taken your picture e-mail it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please give the following information: 1. In the subject line please write: Spartan Holiday Pictures. In the body of the e-mail, please give your 2. name, 3. e-mail address, 4. the photographer’s name (be it you or a friend or family member-but please, make sure you have permission to use the picture), 5. the location of the photo-city, state or province, and country. If you live in a well knows neighborhood, share that information too, for example: Kensington, Toronto, Ontario, Canada or Little Italy, Cleveland, Ohio, USA, 6. and a description of the photo-Town Square, St. Mary’s Church, Sears Building, etc. and finally 7. the date the picture was taken.
Don’t forget to attach your picture, and please, send a high resolution copy.
The best pictures will be posted at The Spartan Opinion and one of the pictures will win "editors pick". Whoever submitted that photo will receive a $50 USD American Express gift certificate. So go out and enjoy the holiday decorations-and don’t forget your camera!
Deadline for submissions is December 21, 2009.
