Contest for Best Blog Post on Photography or Submission of a New Photographer Profile

The Flip Video Camcorder sits at the pinnacle of camcorder style. We're offering one to the contributor of the best original blog post on photography or the best original submission of a new photographer profile to the photography category on Art+Culture.

Browse the photography page here or browse photographers here. Register and add your best insights via a blog post or add your favorite photographer to the system. You can also upload works and connect the artist with artistic movements and themes that describe the work as you see fit. 

Semi-fine print: minimum 200 word submission to be considered. Register at Art+Culture and when you've completed your piece, send us a description of what you did and where you did it and we'll put it into the contest, which will end on October 10, 2009. The contributor of the best submission will receive the Flip Video camcorder and five runners-up will have their work featured on the Art+Culture photography page.

Good Luck.

The A+C Team
