This Is Grand Announces Photo Contest

By Margaret Lyons in Miscellaneous on Aug 4, 2004 2:39PM

Everyone's favorite CTA story website, This Is Grand, has announced a photo contest. Get to it, shutterbugs! Considering the first photo essay on the site (go ahead, click through it, we'll wait), the editors probably have pretty high standards, but if you win, think of what it will do for your artsy cred and internet stardom. Hot damn.

We love love love TiG, and while yes, the photo essay is great, and sure, most of the stories are incredibly well crafted, we still haven't found anything we like better than the very first story. For whatever reason—perhaps that it's an interesting, concise piece that's funny and smart—that story still gives us the giggles every time we read it.
