World's Most Important Snowman Contest 2008 Is On!
ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO – Starting New Year's Day 2008, Today's Snowman" will begin a monthly snowman contest which you the readers will vote on. Submissions can be emailed here and will be posted in competition.
Even though there hasn't been much snow yet and voting won't begin until January of 2008, entries have already been coming in (as far as Switzerland). Keeping with the recent global warming theme on Today's Snowman I received the following photo of a snowman made out of tumbleweeds hitch-hiking in Albuquerque, New Mexico from a friend of The History of the Snowman book, Pam Woodruff, the Executive Secretary of Albuquerque Metropolitan Arroyo Flood Control Authority (say that five times fast). She just wanted me to see the "snowman" they built this morning but I hope to include this fellow in the competition (This is the best picture they could get because the ideal shot would be made by standing in the middle of the freeway!).
Snowmen may include those you made yourself or simply one you see somewhere. Pictures can be either shot with a digital or conventional camera or cell phone. Yes, hand-made drawings are welcome. Rules include no steroids, no gambling, no snowman porn, and/or no ice balls. Persons related to Burl Ives are not eligible. Please do not send any images larger than 1 MB. Winners will be notified one week after voting closes and be announced on Today's Snowman. Winners will receive a prize (possible prizes include a History of the Snowman mini-poster, a snowman bookmark and signed copies of the book). This contest will be permanently posted on the right side of the website. Good luck snowmen and snow women makers!
