Autumn Glory Photography Contest

One of my favorite things about the beginning of Autumn is looking back at the fun memories of Summer.... and then looking ahead with excitment and anticipation to the days of Fall.  That is why I decided that now would be a fun time to host a photography contest in honor of those sweet memories and the brigh future.  However, I also have another reason for doing this......

The Summer Pastimes/Autumn Glory Photography contest (and the giveaways) are all in honr of my best friend and Sister, Rebecca.  I am trying ot help spread the word about her new Etsy Shop and Photography blog!  Want to help me do it?  Wonderful!

Now, I kind of decided to go big with this whole thing... so, there will be several giveaways throughout the contest, some Autumn recipes, and fun interviews (maybe even a few tutorials, if I ever get around to them...).  Don't miss out! And help spread the word.  Grab a button (located on my sidebar) and let's get going!

First things first... The Rules of the photography contest.  Please be sure to read and follow each instruction. Also, the giveaways are not limited to those who are entering the photography contest.

Rules of Entry:

There are 3 categories that you may enter:  Summer Memories, Autumn Happiness , My Favorite Thing (you get to enter any photo!).  You are not limited to just one category.  You may enter up to 3 photos per category.

All photos must be appropriate (no immodest, crude, gross objects in the picture)

Your photographs may be edited, but if you edit them to any great extent, please be sure to post the original as well.

All photographs will be judged according to how well they fit into their category.

This photography contest ends October 31st.  All entrants have until then to get their photographs posted and linked up to THIS POST.  Any entries posted after (Central Time) on the 31st will not be allowed.

When you post your photographs on your blog, be sure to list what category(s) you are entering, and put the direct link to that post in a comment below.

And last but not least, I have the right to eliminate any of the photos if I think that they are inappropriate in any way.



Now go and spread the word, tell all of your friends, and get ready for a fun time in the blogosphere! Also, if you want to enter several categories, they may be entered at seperate times. In other words, you don't have to do Autumn and Summer in the same post. :-)

I put this at the end of the post so that it will be fresh in your memory… Be sure to go and check out my Sister’s Blog,  …. And her new Etsy Shop!

By the way, the pictures in for the blog buttons were taken by Miss Rebecca.. :-)
