An updated version of my 2011 book, “A Century of Fridays,” will be complete in the next month.
And I’m looking for a cover photo.
In case you missed it, after the 2011 season, I wrote and published the book “A Century of Fridays,” chronicling high school football in Wyoming from 1894 to the end of the 2011 season. It looked like this:
I’ve since decided to overhaul and update the book, which is now almost 10 years old. The second edition’s release also falls in line with the 100th anniversary of what I regard as Wyoming’s first full statewide high school football season, 1921.
While I love the photo on the cover of the first edition (my wife Charlynn took the photo at a game we attended together in Big Horn), it’s time for something new. However, since I no longer live in Wyoming, I need some help.
That’s where you come in.
I’m looking for a new cover photo for the second edition, and I’d like you, dear reader, to submit one for consideration.
Photos should be emailed to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “A Century of Fridays.” You must be the creator of any photos you submit — if somebody else took the photo, you shouldn’t submit it. The deadline for submissions is the end of the day Tuesday, Nov. 17.
I’m looking for a clean, sharp action photo without a distracting background. Don’t submit posed photos, portraits, Photoshop projects or photos with excessive blur or fuzziness.
I also have room inside for 4-5 more photos, so entries that don’t make the cover could be placed inside the book, as well.
Email me at email@example.com with any questions, and THANK YOU in advance for your submissions!
Also, keep an eye on this space for details about ordering the new edition of the book. Christmas is just around the corner, and I hope to have the book done in time for that.
