Photography Contest: What Do You Love? (Win $1000 In Cash and Prizes!)

It's been one week since the launch of our What Do You Love? Photography Contest and we are blown away by the beautiful displays of humanity we've seen by those who have entered. It's been a fascinating endeavor to explore the common connection that makes us all human with our theme of love.

To those who have not entered, there is still time (details below)! Did you know you can upload one photo a day until until March 15th? We encourage photo enthusiasts and photographers of all skill levels to enter! Share your creativity and talent for a chance to win $1000 in cash and prizes! Every person who enters will receive a promo code from MyPublisher to create your very own photo book for free – just for entering!

Here are a few of the recent submissions (in no specific order).
