Take a Picture of Yourself Reading by August 15!

We received a grand total of eight pictures! \:D/ After some deliberation, we decided to give the award of "most creative picture" to Jugglah!:

Here are the other pictures received, including three from someone who just wouldn't stop submitting entries! :mad:

Yes, these final three are mine. ;) The first was taken 8 years ago, and was for a Clubhouse reading contest that also had a "take a picture of yourself reading" component... a component which inspired this mini-contest. \:D/

The extra points will be tallied in the final progress report. :D

Ooh, this sounds familiar! I remember Clubhouse Magazine running a similar contest back in the day. I'll definitely try to submit a photo soon. \:D/

What?! Three days left?! :mad:

Get your creative pictures in before 11:59 PM EDT, July 25th! I'm really curious to see what kind of pictures you guys come up with, so I'll make you a deal: I'll post a creative picture of myself reading for every 5 entries I receive. What a steal! \:D/

I've only gotten one entry so far, so get crackin' people! :x

Yes, I was inspired by Clubhouse. :yes: I actually entered that contest; I believe I still have the picture I sent in, on a computer at home. It was very uncreative, sadly. :(

I thought of a good idea for my picture - now I just have to actually take it! ;) I can't wait to see everybody else's pictures! I sure could use more iTally marks, so this sounds like a fun way to try to get more! \:D/

Will the winner receive 70 or 110 iTally marks? O:)

110 sounds good. \:D/

Less than 2 hours left!

EDIT: Deadline extended (to August 15)! Now go concentrate on the Odyssey Impersonation Contest and come back to this later if you haven't submitted a photo. :yes:

New Deadline: August 15ish

^ From the first post in the thread. :)

I already have two totally different pictures taken, but the first one is more cute than creative, and the second one is okay but still not super creative, so now I'll have to see if I can come up with something better with this extra time! \:D/

EDIT: Oops, Lizzie beat me to the new deadline! We posted at the exact same minute. :highfive:

Why didn't you extend it earlier? :noway: It would've given me more time to think creatively before submitting my two photos. :insane:

Is it all right if I turn in my picture now? For me its only 9:24 PM, and I haven't been home to turn in my picture today. I only got to it today cause of camera problems... (wouldn't it give more time for people if deadlines were PST? But.. oh well)

Ooh, great pictures everyone! (Yes, even yours, Jugglah. :x)

Laura, I really liked how you incorporated your surroundings in your photo. Almost made me wonder if there was a needle in that haystack. ;)

Awesome entry, Catspaw! Whoever came up with that idea is a genius. :yes:

Especially enjoyed seeing yours, Lizzie. :lol: It reminded me of the entry I submitted for that same Clubhouse contest so many years ago. Do you remember which book you were reading for that photo?
