In celebration of our 500th review on September 28th, Vegbooks is hosting a contest! Readers are encouraged to submit an original book review, which will be evaluated by a panel of Vegbooks judges for writing style, subject matter, and creativity. The winner will receive three vegan-friendly kids books — and a bonus cookbook — and Vegbooks will spotlight the winning book review on Vegbooks.org.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Deadline: October 24, 2011 – the second anniversary of Vegbooks!
How to Enter: Submit an original book review of 350 words or less, along with a short (1-2 sentence) biography, to vegbooks (at) gmail (dot) com. Use the subject line, “500th Review Contest.” Please include the review in the body of your email, and not as an attachment.
Entries will be judged on writing style, subject matter, and creativity. To increase your chances of winning, you should review a book that has not been reviewed on Vegbooks in the past, and the book should be available for new or used purchase within the United States. For a list of book reviews on Vegbooks, visit the Books page. You may also wish to familiarize yourself with the style of our book reviews and check out our Writers’ Guidelines for additional tips. By entering, you are granting Vegbooks permission to publish your review on Vegbooks.org.
Prize: The first-place winner, chosen solely at the discretion of a panel of judges selected by Vegbooks, will receive three veg-friendly kids books – That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals, Garlic- Onion- Beet- Spinach- Mango- Carrot Grapefruit Juice, and Our Farm – and the winning review will be featured on the site!
Also, Nava Atlas has generously donated a copy of The Vegetarian Family Cookbook as a bonus book for the first-place winner.
The contest is open to everyone, but only entrants with a mailing address within the United States or Canada are eligible to receive the books. You may include your mailing address with your entry. If the winning entry does not include a mailing address, we will make every effort to reach the winner at his or her email address to request a mailing address for the prize.
