2017 Share Your Bliss Photo Contest

Shame Kills is sponsoring a summer photography contest, and you could win $200!

photo contestSometimes the smallest moment in our day can have the most impact. And oftentimes, the little things do more for our mental health than we realize.  For many people in recovery, the little things tend to make up a bigger feeling of happiness and renewal, and we want to recognize just how important those small moments can be.

Whether it’s the first sip of coffee in the morning, catching all the green lights on your way to work, the first taste of ice cream in the summer, or the few quiet minutes you have to yourself in a day, we want to see your bliss captured in a photograph.

We are honored to have a panel of award-winning judges helping us with our competition, which is aimed at amateur photographers or those who enjoy taking snapshots with their phones. This means you don’t need to be a professional photographer to submit a photo!

All entries are subject to contest rules. This contest is open to anyone 18 and older, anywhere. All cash prizes will be paid using Paypal, and any tax liability is the responsibility of the winner. Winners will be announced mid- to late September.

We would like to thank our international panel of judges, all of whom are professional, award-winning photographers:

Leslie Alsheimer, Greg Boratyn, Steve Bracci, Sal Cincotta, Nataly Danilova,
Brett Groehler, Roger Hammons, Ayano Hisa, Martin Pickles,
Jeff Rennicke and Morgan Silk.
