Document the details of your “I do” dress for a chance to win a cash prize for your prose in The Wedding Gown Project: One Day, One Dream, One Dress writing competition.
Whether your bridal attire was a homespun silhouette, a vintage vision or a salon showstopper, documentarian Donna Guthrie– the author of more than 20 award-winning children’s books– is searching for a virtual bouquet of bridal stories which focus on the importance of buying, making, fitting, wearing, storing or passing down a prized gown.
“Whether you are a bride-to-be or your wedding took place more than 50 years ago, every married woman has a story about what she wore on her wedding day. Through ‘The Wedding Gown Project’ I want to know why the wedding gown is so important to brides today – and is it still important years after their wedding day,” states Guthrie.
How To Enter
Currently compiling chronicles of women’s wedding wear tales for an upcoming documentary, Guthrie is asking for non-fiction, memoir, blogging, essay-style entries which cannot exceed 500 words. Only original and unpublished work will be accepted. All entries must be posted by November 30, 2011 and mailed to:
The Wedding Dress Project
PO Box 7288
Colorado Springs, CO 80933
Three prize winners will be unveiled no later than February 1, 2012. First prize: $250; Second Prize; $100 and Third Prize $50. The team of authors and industry experts who will judge the entries will be looking for humor, sensitivity and new insights in the award-winning entries.
