This Contest is Haunted

Hey friends. You are creative and talented and attractive and you love Halloween as much as I do. Time to express your creativity and general delight in the macabre with the first annual This Contest is Haunted. Send me your original scariest stories and photographs for the chance to be a crowned a Champion of Horror (just like Stephen King but without the weird face and coke problem).

There will be two categories: Photographs and Stories. You may enter pieces in both categories if you wish and there is no limit to the number of entries.

Photographs: Please submit your own original photographs in a digital format. Almost anything goes, something dead that you found, a creepy self-portrait or tableau of your friends, but I would prefer that everything you do is legal (no snuff photographs or weird, real-life torture stuff).

Stories: Stories should not be more than about a page long (500 words or less). They can be true or completely fictional, as long as they are terrifying. Note: I will not be editing these, so make sure you proofread.

Submit your horrifying photos or stories by October 24. The top five finalists for each category will be selected by a panel of judges. The top five will be displayed on this blog and the champions will be decided by a public vote.

There will be prizes for the champions. Not like, a trip to a Hawaii or anything, but not something lame like a stick of gum either. Exciting prizes!

Please send your entries to:

Here's some inspiration: the newest trailer for the Couch Street Massacre.

This makes me want to see the pictures we all took while camping on our way down to Lauren and Ben's wedding.
