Delirium Photography Contest

Announcing the most amazing contest that I have been hinting about for too long...
Which has tons to do with being Delirious about Photography...
The amazing, talented and kind Lauren Oliver, author of Before I Fall and Delirium has offered a signed, finished copy to the winner! 
Here is a little 
synopsis for the book. I think it’s the perfect book to celebrate all aspects of love:
Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love - the deliria - blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy. 
But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.
Here are the Rules:
Photo’s must be submitted between January 29th to February 28th at midnight.

You must be a follower of my blog to enter and you must leave a comment telling me why you want to read Delirium, and tell me the e-mail address you have used to send me your photo. Please know I will not be opening anything with an attachment, send your photo as part of the body of your text. 
The photo must contain you, or a group, making a heart with their hands. Beyond that, it’s up to you! Do note that if you are part of a group shot that wins, only one signed copy will be sent to you, and one of these prints:

You may edit your own photo, or send it to me as is. If you send it to me, it will be edited with the appropriate information.
You can e-mail me your photo at BellaCarolina33(at)aim(dot)com
My plan is to take all these photos and create a collage for Lauren, so make sure to get your pictures in!
Lauren has graciously offered two signed, finished copies and so each of us will be picking a winner! I know I will be judging on creativity. 

The winners will each receive a signed copy of Delirium and a signed “They Cannot Take It” print by Messenger Photography. 
Have fun entering, I can’t wait to see your photography!

Okay,so, why do I want to read Delirium?
Well, I loved Lauren's first book, Before I Fall, and have been super excited for this one to come out for a long time. The main idea of it all sounds very interesting and I would love to have Lauren's autograph!

The reason I want to read Delirium is pretty simple: I read Before I Fall. I am aware of how excellent Lauren Oliver can be.
This is a great contest! Photos can tell so much. I took my time with mine, mostly because I don't know much about editing. But it was worth a try. I will send you my photo from
