    I’ve read the bible…now what? Did into your inners self and find your open mind, faith, and understanding of the time period in which it was written. Equipped with these tools, it is truly a book of wonder. Carry it’s meaning with you and share it with other people by being the best person you can be. Be the person God made you to be. That’s what.

    Simply outragious!

    For your information, a cover picture for less then 5.000 books would cost in the market from 250 to 375$ approx. and only for the edition of one book. Here they are trying to get perpetual usage of your images, for this book and any other that may come in the future, related or not with the bible.

    Don’t forget that this is a company that seeks for benefit and your are practically giving away your pictures. Is that worth a picture in a cover? Not for me, not even in my dreams. Think about it.

      Hi Mikel,

      Thank you for your response. I encourage all entrants to take the time to read and understand the rules. I would like to summarize the intent of the rules; First, by submitting an image, the entrant grants the right for the image to be displayed online (i.e. this website) as it pertains to this contest. Secondly, the winning image will only be used for the book project associated with this contest. As for the value of the prize, you’re right, we operate on a shoestring. its definately not for everyone, we thought it would be fun to open it up for photo enthusiasts to have a chance to have one of their photos used on the cover of a book.

      if you would like further clarification or questions feel free to contact us via our contact form.

      Thank you,
      Jeff
