Send Us Your Weird Things Competition
Send Us Your Weird Things!
Welcome to the inaugural “Send Us Your Weird Things (That You Brought Back From a Trip) Competition!” Nowhere magazine is offering $100 and your very own article in Issue 6 for the best found object brought back from a journey. Skeleton keys, fishbones, wishing stones, belt buckles, jewelry boxes, souvenirs, knickknacks and bric-a-brac all fit the bill. Your object will be scanned in by our scanning professionals and presented with your description to the world in our new department, “Found.”
All you have to do is take your phone or camera, snap a picture of the thing and send it in with a 200-word description of what it is, where you found it and why you thought it was special enough to lug home.
Entry is free. Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
