At My Home Photo Contest

At My Home Photo ContestJust the other day I blogged about the newly released America At Home photography album, and how I like the concept behind the book, that includes pictures from pros and amateurs alike.

This is why I am really exited to announce the first prize winning DIYP photo contest – At My Home photo contest. Read on for the full contest rules.

What Is This Contest All About?

Just like America At Home, At My Home contest is about the most important place in your life: home. The emotions of home: the distinctive rituals, the intimate moments, and all the myriad ways in which you work, play, learn, conduct your life, and interact with friends, family members (and pets!) as you transform your dwelling into your home.

You can get a pretty good idea about how America at Home photographers see their homes by browsing the (partial) online version of the book.

The Prizes

This is the fun part (Aside from looking at the pictures of course). As grand prize the winner will receive an America At Home photo album priced at 39.95 USD. To make this even sweeter, the winner will be able to customize the cover of the book to feature his family, home or beloved Nikon D3. And of course, the winner will receive unlimited bragging rights.

The 4 runners up will receive the same sweet deal of a great America At Home photo album plus a personalized cover. Bragging rights will be lesser as the place goes down. (I guess the sharp eyed readers noticed that all 5 winners will receive the same prize)

The Judges

For judging this contest, we have collected the finest photographers and photo-bloggers from around the web:
