The 365 Grateful Inspired, Charles Shaughnessy Gratitude Through Photography Project! Only Connect!

Hey everyone!


It has been suggested that we need another photo contest.  I agree!!  The inspiration for this new contest is the wonderful 365 grateful project by Hailey Bartholomew from Brisbane Australia. Basically, to combat depression, Hailey started taking a photograph each day with a little written description about it, to visually document something she was grateful for in her life.  Hailey says "It all began back In 2008. I was feeling really down. It seems strange now to say that because I can't think of a good reason why I should have been, but I know I felt incredibly out of sorts with life. It was like I knew in my head I had it good but I really wasn't enjoying myself!"  Hailey's 365 Grateful Project has become an inspiration to many, including us, with a documentary being made about the extraordinary power of gratitude. 


When we came across this 365 Grateful project online, it reminded us of a past contest that we had.  Ours was in 2003!! and was called The Official Charles Shaughnessy Website Holiday Gratitude Contest!


We love photos & we love what expressing gratitude can do for the human spirit, so we are having our own 365 Grateful Inspired Charles Shaughnessy Gratitude Through Photography Project!


  This is how you enter:

Take a photo, it MUST be a photo that YOU have taken, of something that you are grateful for or that fills your heart with gratitude when you see it.  You can enter ONE PHOTO per day, but you can enter every day, if you want, until we end the contest.  

Please send your entries to gratitudephoto@gmail.com To be included in the contest, in the body of the email, you MUST include a SHORT (about 50 words) description about the photo and why you chose it, the date that you are submitting each photo, at least your first name and the city and/or state & country you live in, then attach a photo big enough for us to use, to your email. If you are on Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter, feel free to include your sign on names for those networks.  We will tag you if we can. 


The contest will go on for several months at least, and though we don't mind if you use older photos that you already have as well, we hope you will take new photos whenever you feel the inspiration of something that makes you feel grateful, snap a photo with your phone and submit it with a little description.  It will change the way you see the world when you see it through capturing the things with a camera, that make you feel grateful.  


The photos will be showcased on my Official Charles Shaughnessy Fan Page on Facebook, each day in it's own album.  If you want to see the photos so far, be sure to LIKE my page first then go to this Gratitude Photos on Facebook Link to see all of the photos that have been submitted so far. 


This is VERY IMPORTANT!!!
***Please Note & understand that by entering the 365 Grateful Inspired Charles Shaughnessy Photo Gratitude contest, you still retain the copyright & ownership of your own photos, but you are giving Charles Shaughnessy & Shaughnessy Productions the right to reproduce them online in association with this contest. Send your entries to gratitudephoto@gmail.com

I am very excited to be presenting this project & opportunity for you to capture & write about the things in your life that you are grateful for.  I hope you enjoy this challenge & that it fills your hearts by participating in it. Have a great time snapping photos!
