OK, this is just an idea that I thought up yesterday. I was thinking about all the killer submission for the calendar thread and I wanted to give you guys a shot at getting your stuff on the cover of the yearbook. Yes, the format is VERTICAL, just like for the calendar. If you're confused, that means taller, not wider. I'll add that the format is VERTICAL! I'm not cropping your horizontal submissions, so keep them for another thread. The world is being directed to www.goodguysforum.com to submit, but you guys can just post here on the HAMB and I'll check them out. Questions? Just ask here or email me at email@example.com. I'll be in Charlotte and at SEMA for the next week and a half, so there may be a delay during that time. The prize is your photo on the cover of thousands of Goodguys Yearbooks distributed in 2010, $250, a one-year subscription to the Goodguys Gazette and 10 copies of the yearbook. Contest ends 1/1/10!
