ABC-Along I Contest

ImmodestABC-Along 2008 button as it may seem, I'm again sponsoring the ABC-Along "I" Contest! It's incentive for ingenuity, to counter flagging interest in the ABC-Along and to spare gentle readers the inhumanity of un-inspired photoessays for letter nine of the alphabet (I).

There are two prizes, one for the judges' favorite "I" photoessay and one for a random entry. Prize i is Zen String Lotus Toes, 100% superwash British Blue Face Leicester, in colorway Iris.

Prize ii is Farmhouse Yarns Fannie's Fingering, 80/20 Merino and nylon from U.S. farms, in colorway Indigo.

To enter the "I" Contest, add your ABC-Along I photo to the ABC-Along 2008 Flickr pool, with a caption and tagged icontest, no later than May 10. Your photo description may link to a blog with additional text or photos, if desired. One entry per person, please; the photo and text must be your own work, naturally. The contest is open to all members of the 2008 ABC-Along.

Two prize winners will be chosen, one by the judges and one by random number generator. The judges' favorite gets the pick of the prizes. Judges are not eligible for prizes; their decisions are final. Winners will be announced here.

Any questions? Ask away in the comments. Otherwise, let's see your great ideas!

Invigorating! I am lagging behind. I still have to do G & H.

My 'I' post was about being indecisive, but was nothing like an essay... will have to think on this one!

knitnzu: The term "essay" is used very loosely to mean something a bit more descriptive than "My I is for inscrutable" and a bit shorter than "War and Peace."

Hi again! I put up an I photo and hopefully I tagged it correctly (just figuring out tags), but I have no idea how to link it to a post! It's the "I is for Impish" post.
