LAST CALL for photos! @IggyGram: A World Blessed and Broken

by | Feb 16, 2013 | Uncategorized

Hey y’all!  We have one week left for our #BlessedBroken photo theme, so tweet your original pic to @IggyGram or email it to [email protected]  Have a great and prayerful Holy Week!

…And don’t forget:

  1. Most importantly: we’re looking for original work.  Pictures of pictures of other works of art, for example, don’t quite fit the bill.  Besides, we can run into copyright issues if we go down that road.
  2. We need pics that fit our Lenten theme: “A World Blessed and Broken.”  If you have awesome original pics of things that fall outside the theme, please hang onto them for another call for photos… i.e. for another theme!
  3. Submit your name and a short blurb – about 100-110 characters – explaining how your image fits the Lenten theme.
  4. And, as always… read the full list of terms and conditions before submitting photos.

Lent has begun, and TJP wants an original photo from you.  The IggyGram theme for this season is “A World Blessed and Broken.”  So grab your iPhone, Canon or Nikon and send us an original photo of something “Lentish” – an image that speaks of this season of contemplation and reconciliation, an image that shows “A World Blessed and Broken.”  Don’t forget to include your name and a 107character (mini-Tweet) description of why you chose your image!1

“I saw this when I was walking on a foggy morning,

and remembered that there’s both brokenness and blessing on the cross.”

Easy, right?  So take a good look around, get creative, and let us know how YOU see things.  FYI, we’ll be displaying your photos on our Facebook page, so prepare to get Liked.

How to submit your photo:

  • Email your original photo, a 107-character explanation and your name to [email protected]
  • Tweet your photo, name and explanation to @IggyGram
  • Please read IggyGram’s terms and conditions before submitting your photo

Blessings this Lent!

  1. 107 characters??  ‘Mini-Tweet?’ What gives??”  Fair questions, and sorry about the rationing.  Here’s the math: First, you’ll need to include @IggyGram in your tweet.  So that’s 9 fewer characters you’ll have left.  Secondly, pics in tweets show up as links… which take away even more from the 140-character limit.  107 characters is the average that Twitter has left us after taxes, we’ve found, so keep this in mind when composing your description.  We’re working on ways to up the limit, but for now keep those descriptions lean!
