I found another great writing contest! This time in the Kansas City Star. Here's how it works: the Star prints a picture; you write a fake caption. It's fast--results are announced the following week--and you can email your submission. Perfect! The kicker: you've got less than 24 hours to submit your best stuff.
So I entered for the first time last Friday, 6/12, on DTV Conversion Day. Although I didn't win the $25 gift card, I was a runner-up. I couldn't get a link to page C7, so here's my caption for this crazy picture:
"Ecstatic over his win in the inaugural DTV Conversion Day Awards, former rock star Melvin Bliggle takes home the Silver Spring."
I've missed the deadline for this week (rats), but I'm gonna enter again when I can. After all, it's a writing contest, and you know how I loves me some writing contests.
