We are excited to announce our next big contest. It’s called The Great American Photo Book. Over the course of the year, we saw some amazing images coming in from every American state. It got us thinking, it would be great to see these images come together into one photo book.. to show the richness, the texture and the history of America. So, we decided, hey we run a great company that produces amazing photo books, we can do this! So this is where you come into the picture. We will be taking photo entries from photographers around the country from each state. Heck, you don’t even have to live in the state to submit your picture.  If your photo wins a spot in The Great American Photo Book, then you receive a free 8×12 Aluminyzed Metal Print.

Plus, this is for charity! Profits from the sale of these books will go to The American Red Cross.  We couldn’t think of a better charity to give this money to, than an organization that  helps rebuild America after natural disasters.

So here is a general breakdown of how the contest will work. Now through December 31st, 2012, we will be accepting submissions for The Great American Photo Book on our Facebook page.   The top two entries with the highest votes per state will be submitted to the Adoramapix Judges. We will then choose the best image to represent that state in the photo book. This way it is a collaboration between you the photographer and us the publisher.

Now, with any contest that we run there is a list of Rules and Regulations.  For this contest, you must:

1. Be a fan of ours on Facebook. (This is where the actual contest will run on Facebook)

2. Only one entry per person. You must put the name of the state in the title of your submission.

3. Photographers who submit images, must own the copyright to those images.

4.  And of course, any contest we run contestants must adhere by our 2012 General Contest Rules and Regulations.

* Please note.. #19 in our General Contest Rules and Regulations has been amended for this contest.  Photographers will retain rights.
