New photography caption contest

Give us your best caption

A while back, this blog had run a few different photography-related contests for our readers. And right now, we’re bringing that effort back.

Here’s how it works. For each of the next four weeks, starting today, the Creative Dreamers Blog will be positing a single photo and asking our readers to come up with a creative caption. Sounds easy enough right? Well, here’s where the challenge comes in. Your caption can only contain one word. OK, we’ll give you a pass and accept hyphenated words. But that’s it. This should force your creative juices to flow.

Leave your caption submission as a comment on this and the other weekly posts and one winner will be determined each week. After all four weeks of the contest have concluded, we’ll choose an overall winner for the entire contest.

So, you might be thinking, “what do the winners get?”

Weekly winners will get their choice of:

Free promotion on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Stumbleupon, Google+ and here on our blog.

A free high-resolution copy of any of the photos from the Three Rivers Creative Arts website or their Deviant Art collection.

Overall winner will get the choice of: 

A free creative service listed here from Fiverr.com and their choice of either of the top weekly prizes.

A free custom sketch of their favorite celebrity or public personality and  their choice of either of the top weekly prizes.

Your first caption challenge starts with the image below. Good luck!

Halloween themed photo contest

Halloween is right around the corner

It has become the second biggest commercial holiday in America and can be a blast for both adults and children alike. Considering my own personal affinity for this holiday, I figured this might be a good time to run another quickie Creative Dreamers contest.
