Greetings friends of the enchanted forest!
It's that time of year when greens fade to fabulous colours and we get to snuggle around a crackling fire for a spooky tale or two! And along with October comes my annual Photos of Enchantment Contest! In case you missed out last year, throughout the magical month of October, I want you to share the enchantments in your neck of the woods!
Where do you go to be surrounded by magical enchantments? Perhaps you are like me and find the deep, dark woods filled with magic, danger, refuge and adventure! Or perhaps the urban forests are more your cup of tea. No matter your preference, start taking photographs of your very favourite enchanted locations. (If you don't have a favourite location, then you have a whole month of exploration adventures ahead of you!)
Once you have a photograph, either (1) Post the photo on your own blog, flickr account, or facebook page and then post the link in the comment section below; or (2) Post the photo on the Emmy Blue Enchantments facebook page; or (3) Post photos on instagram or twitpic using the hashtag #Enchantments. Just be sure to message me via facebook or e-mail to let me know that you have entered the contest because there are PRIZES!!
- The enchanted photograph may be urban or rural. The photo may be taken in a land far, far away or right in your own backyard.
- You may enter as many enchanted photographs as you would like for the entire month of October.
- You may enter the contest as an individual or a family. If you are a teacher or leader of an organization, then you may enter your entire class or group.
- The more the merrier! Feel free to copy the contest logo from above and paste it on your blog or Facebook page to encourage others to share their magic with us too!
- The winners will be mentioned in a very special October 31st holiday blog post!
PRIZES! Chosen by a random drawing, THREE winners will receive limited edition Emmy Blue postcards and bookmarks featuring my magical characters and tales, as well as a magical stone straight from the enchanted forest. If a class or organization wins, then you will receive a box of enchanted surprises for everyone. Emmy Blue surprises are extra magical, just take a look at the prize from last year:
What are you waiting for? Get your camera and start your exploration adventures immediately! And remember, don't worry about the quality or quantity of your photographs, just have fun finding a bit of magic in your own neck of the woods!
Happy October! Xx
