It’s the spookiest (and, dare we say, best) time of the year, and we’re celebrating with a new photo contest! We looovve Halloween decorations and thought it would be so fun to design our own Halloween-themed book stack — and now we want to invite you to create your own, and win a prize!
Enter our HallowRead photo challenge by creating your own Halloween-themed bookstack or shelfie. We want to see:
- Your favorite spooky reads! We’re leaving the selection pretty open-ended because we love a good book recommendation. The book does not have to be about Halloween per say (although of course that would be pretty cool!), but it should have a thematic tie-in to the season in some way. Genre suggestions include paranormal, horror, thriller, dark fantasy, speculative fiction, YA, Gothic lit, mystery, etc. etc.
- A creative Halloween-themed book stack or shelfie design! This is the really fun part: Take your favorite spooky reads and decorate them for Halloween, then send us a pic! Remember we’re judging based on creativity, so let your imagination go wild!
The winning Halloween-themed bookstack or shellfie will receive:
- This Ghost Stories soy vegan candle from BriarWick
- One of our BFF T-shirts (so stylish)
- Fun pumpkin-themed treats and goodies!
The deadline to enter is 11:59 p.m. October 30th, and the winning entry will be announced / featured on our social media on October 31st! Enter by
- Posting a photo of your Halloween-themed bookstack or shelfie to Instagram
- Tagging us (@booksforwardpr) in your post
Don’t have Instagram? You can email your submission pic to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can’t wait to see your entries! Happy HallowRead!
