The Write Blog’s Grammar-Fail Contest: Win a $50 Amazon Gift Certificate

10 Sep 2010


Are you a grammar Nazi?  A stickler for punctuation?  Do you want a $50 gift certificate?  Do you want a free link back to your website?

The Write Blog is happy to announce our first-ever bad grammar photo contest.

We’re inviting all of our fellow readers, writers, word lovers, and grammar geeks to get out there and find the best examples of public proofreading fails you can find:  Billboards, posters, signs, ads – you name it (see yesterday’s blog post for an example).  Take a picture and email it to us with a 1-2 sentence explanation of why your photo should be the winner.

After we review all of the submissions, we’ll choose five finalists. Voters will determine the winners.

First Prize: Fame and fortune in the form of a $50 gift card and an announcement on our blog.

Second Prize: Fame and (a slightly smaller amount of) fortune in the form of a $25 gift card and an announcement on our blog.

We will accept submissions until Friday, October 15, 2010.  We’ll post finalists and start taking votes on Wednesday, October 20.  Please submit all entries to [email protected]

If you have any questions, you can email us.

The Official Stuff:

  • Contest is open to anyone with a camera, a sense of humor, and proofreading skills.
  • Submitted photos must be original (please don’t submit screenshots of other grammar-fail blogs unless you actually took the picture).
  • Please blur out (or cover) any brand names.
  • All contestants should send us a link to their websites if they would like us to link back to them.
