Jane Austen Quote Photo Contest

Period Drama Photo: Little Dorrit 2009
Jane Austen Quote: Northanger Abbey
You've probably seen button and poster contests before where you have to create a funny or sweet photo using a quote from another film, book or song. This contest is based on that similar idea only with slightly different rules. For this contest Jane Austen quotes rule the day!

Contest Rules: 
--Design your own button / pictures / posters that feature a photo from a non-Austen period film with a caption that is a Jane Austen quote or quote from a Jane Austen film adaptation.

--Post your entries on your blog and comment with the link or put your entry URLs in a comment or e-mail me your entries.

--Submit up to 3 entries for each category by Friday, July 27th at 11:59 PM EST

--There are two categories to enter in: Sweet (where the quote is sweet or serious) and Funny (where the quote and photo are designed to make the viewer laugh)

--When you post or comment please tell which category you are entering for, what period drama the photo is from and where the Jane Austen quote comes from.

--All submissions will be judged by me and three winners will be chosen for each category. Winners will be announced on Saturday, July 28th.

--Please keep your entries clean. Questionable photos or quotes will not be accepted for judging.

--I made the photos in this post using PicMonkey.com which I highly recommend.


Example of the Sweet Category:

Category: Sweet
Period Drama Photo: Wives & Daughters 1998
Jane Austen Quote: Caroline Bingley, Pride & Prejudice


Example of the Funny Category:

Period Drama Photo: The Scarlet Pimpernel 1982

If you have any questions about the rules feel free to ask.

I look forward to seeing your entries! 


Very Truly Your's,







P.S. Your comments might not be published on Saturday as I'll be away most of the day. Think of me fondly, I'll be at The Jane Austen Festival in Louisville! :)
