Dear André,

The editorial team of Photography Laureates has conducted a detailed examination of the best photographs submitted to us in the last months. We have decided to publish in an Anthology the very best photographers and the most exceptional pictures we have encountered.

We would like to congratulate you for being selected for publication as part of our highly acclaimed Photography Anthology. As such, you are a finalist for the $6500 prize. As a Laureate and talented photographer, you now have access to several networking opportunities aimed at exposing you to the photography community.

Your photograph was selected out of hundreds of competing entries and you will be published along with other talented photographers.

Your photograph, "Sorry dad", was selected for its composition, structure and illusion of depth...



.. and will be published in our acclaimed "Best Of 2008 Photography", Deluxe, 8.5" X 11", Hard bound, 300 pages Special Edition anthology.

BEST OF 2008 PHOTOGRAPHY ANTHOLOGY:



André: This special edition will feature You as a Photographer with Your Biography

Our Hard Bound Deluxe Anthologies have over 300 pages of leading photographs from Selected Laureates as well as several sections on photography techniques written by leading experts. They make terrific coffee table books and treasured gifts to friends and family! Your photograph will be published in this anthology along with your name and biography.

Every aspect of the publication and design of this leading edition, the Best of 2008 Photography Anthology, reflects the quality craftsmanship that went into the production of this special edition.

It is also our pleasure to commemorate the publication of your photograph with a Limited Edition Certificate in your name, printed on a high quality Walnut wood finished Plaque. The plaque measures 10.5’’ X 13’’. As one of our photography laureates, your plaque will feature your name and Photograph as well as a Certificate of Achievement.


André, all editors congratulate you on your accomplishment. A very small minority of the photographs we examined were selected to join our Society and considered for publication in our exclusive Anthology.

Please note that to recognize and reward selected photographers, we have established $6500 in prizes to be awarded at the sole discretion of our editorial team.

Again, congratulations, André: the Best of 2008 Photography is our most beautifully crafted hard bound Anthology. It features beautiful Photography artistry. We are proud to publish you as part of this talented and exclusive group of photographers.  Your contribution to this project is greatly appreciated.

André,

esse site faz um negócio assim: eles aceitam todas as fotografias enviadas para lá, por todo mundo. Enviam e-mails para cada um, dizendo que as fotos são ótimas e tal.

Em alguns dias, eles enviam outro e-mail, dizendo que o livro onde vai ser publicada a tua foto custa algo como $ 60. Quando a pessoa paga, ela recebe um livro onde a maioria das fotos são ruins (afinal não há seleção, TODAS as fotos enviadas são colocadas lá), e o material é de péssima qualidade.

Ou seja, eles cobram para colocar as fotos em um livro ruim. Se for $ 60 por foto, uma foto por página, em 300 páginas eles ganham $ 18.000. Levando em consideração que muitos compram mais de um livro, é bastante grana.

Com esse dinehiro você pode imprimir um livro inteiro com suas fotos nas empresas especializadas aqui mesmo no Brasil.

Nos links abaixo tem pessoas falando desse e outros "concursos" desse tipo:

Legal esse esclarecimento edersonn ... :)

Vou ser franca em dizer que o e-mail que o André recebeu me deixou contente primeiro por ele, e depois por pensar que poderia tentar também .... (os $6500 são realmente convidativos ... :P hehehhee)

Obrigado pela dica...
