Would you like to appear in the Prize Winners' Photo Album? Have you won a prize in a contest or sweepstakes? Send us your picture of yourself and your win, and share your joy at winning with the world!
Image Format GuidelinesPlease save your image in .jpg format. If possible, use an image management program to adjust the size to no larger than 500 pixels on each side. I prefer images that include the winner in them.
Photo File Size GuidelinesEach image should be no larger than 35 KB when you save it. The smaller the image file size, the quicker the page will load, which is a real help for people with slower internet connections.
Email Your PhotoTo send me your photo, email me with the photo as an attachment. Use the subject line "Prize Photo Submission." Be sure you attach the image before you send the email. Adding the image first can prevent you from forgetting the attachment.
