So Very Awkward: Chuck Wendig's Awkward Author Photo Contest 2018
Popular Vote Category Now Open
So, author Chuck Wendig has for the past couple of years run a hilarious Awkward Author Photo contest on his blog Terrible Minds.
In Chuck's own words:
"You take a photo of yourself. Or someone takes a photo of you. And this photo is meant to imitate a really bad, really weird, really awkward author photo. Some real authors have terrible, terrible photos on their book jackets, and your job is to outdo those at every turn. Funny is good. Weird is wonderful. Clever is excellent."
Chuck chooses his favourite and then the field is opened for popular votes, with the winner getting a prize! Who doesn't love a prize! Voting is open until Wednesday July 25th 2018.
Anyways, take a mo and vote for me! Or whichever photo you like the best: maybe that guy with the unicorn, it's super-cute.
