What Are You Thankful For?

By Shelly Perry in Portland, OR

Sure, we joke about getting out the elastic waistband, unbuckling our belts and gorging ourselves on turkey, stuffing, potatoes, and pie.

But filling our bellies on Thanksgiving also helps us remember to be thankful for the things we have. Like plenty of good food to keep us alive. A roof over our heads. And family and friends to brighten our spirits.

This month, we’re turning the Photo Challenge into a virtual Thanksgiving table. You’re invited to join us… and share a photo of what you’re most thankful for this year.

Maybe it’s a new addition to the family:

What Are You Thankful For?

Or your favorite place to rest at night:

Or your trusty car mechanic:

If you don’t want to share the thing you’re most thankful for, you could also bring a Thanksgiving dish to the table…

Like a slice of Pumpkin Pie:

Or even a full, golden turkey -- before it disappears:

Whatever photo you bring to the table this month, remember to make sure that it’s properly exposed, well-composed, and fits the theme.

And we can only accept ONE photo per person, per month.

This month’s first-place winner will get a $30 gift certificate to the AWAI E-Bookstore, and the first- second- and third-place winners will all be entered into the Hall of Fame, to compete for next year’s $2,000 Grand Prize.

Submissions for November’s Photo Challenge are due by 8:00 a.m. EST on Monday, November 30.  You can sign in and submit your photo.
