Editor’s Note: You’ll have fun participating in this contest for this year’s National Punctuation Day!
by Jeff Rubin, founder, National Punctuation Day
This year we celebrate National Punctuation Day with a punctuation photo contest. Here are the rules:
PREPARING THE PHOTOS
1. Take three photos of incorrectly punctuated signage (stores, billboards, businesses, road signs, public transit, etc.), each showing a different punctuation error. (See example photo.)
2. Name the punctuation error(s) in each photo (there may be multiple errors).
3. Submit one entry of three photos per person.
4. You must be in the photos (see me in the “Member’s Testimonials” photo below). Selfies are OK. Photos with photoshopped heads will be disqualified.
5. Each photo must contain a caption, which will be considered when judging your entry. Be creative.
6. Photos must be submitted in .JPG format and be no more than 2 MB each.
7. The file name for your photos must include your last name in CAPS. For example: RUBIN photo #1.jpg, RUBIN photo #2.jpg, etc.
SUBMITTING THE PHOTOS
1. Send your submission to jeff@NationalPunctuationDay.com.
2. In the e-mail subject header write: NPD PHOTO CONTEST.
3. Include your name, address, and location of the photos (city and state).
The deadline for submissions is OCTOBER 31, 2017.
Jeff points out punctuation blunder.
