“A craving for freedom and independence is generated only in a man still living on hope.” - A Happy Death (Albert Camus)
“There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more I am dissatisfied with it, and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of either merit or sense.” - Pride and Prejudice (Jane Austen)
“For like a shaft, clear and cold, the though pierced him that in the end the shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach.” - The Return of the King (J.R.R. Tolkien)
Just this morning I crossed over the 5,000 followers mark. First off, THANK YOU! I appreciate every single one of you sharing, submitting to, and enjoying Quotes from Fiction. I’ve been running this blog for a little over seven months now, and the response is completely astounding to me. Before I jump into the contest details, I also want to say that coming in June we’ll have a more Tumblr traditional style of giveaway, but after some consideration I decided I wanted this first one to be a little more creative.
There will be three prizes awarded of an Amazon giftcard (purchased through the Amazon site in your country of origin unless you specify otherwise). First Prize, for the submission with the most likes/reblogs, will win a $50 Giftcard. The submissions with the second and third most likes/reblogs will each win a $25 Giftcard. Amounts are in Canadian currency. After winners are determined, I will request your email and we’ll go from there.
To enter, choose your favourite quote from a work of fiction and display it in a creative way. This could be an image like the ones I post here on QFF, a painting, macaroni art, collage, a rap… ANYTHING that showcases the quote, VERBATIM, and that YOU have made. Post your submission on YOUR Tumblr tagged #quotecontest2013 and #quotesfromfiction and submit the link to me. Encourage your followers to share and reblog. I will also reblog all submissions on quotesfromfiction.com. Those with the most likes/reblogs between now until the 22nd of May, win! Be creative and have fun!
Favourite Quote Contest (April 22nd to May 22nd 2013)
- One submission per Tumblr account.
- You must have a Tumblr account, and you have to be following Quotes from Fiction in order to enter.
- The quote you choose must be from a work of fiction. This can be a novel, novella, short story, play, epic poem (think Prufrock) , etc. If you are unsure, please ask. I will be tagging all posts related to the contest on the blog as #quotecontest2013. Your submission post must include the title of the work, and the author.
- Your submission post must also include your name and the country where you live, and the image featuring the quote must include a watermark of some sort with your tumblr username (not distorting the actual image). If it’s a video, include it somewhere there whether spoken or shown. I will be google image searching each submission to verify that it was made by you.
- No porn, nudity, etc.
And that’s it! I’m very excited to see submissions and get going. Thank you again for your follows and support of QFF. If you have any questions or need clarification re: the contest, please don’t hesitate to ask!
Only today and tomorrow left if you were planning on submitting! If not, please take a moment to look at the great submissions and like or reblog one or more to cast votes for your favourites!
Winners will be announced on Thursday, and the prizes will be posted to them next week.
