The same thing happened to me a long time ago, only it was a poem, not a photograph. I didn't send them a frickin' dime.

Please don't send them a dime. In 1997 I sent a photo to a few months later I got a letter saying I was a first place winner and my pic would be showcased in some book but I had to send them 80.00 in order for them to do it. I think I got another 4 letters after that asking when was I going to send the money. They also told me the name of the book which I looked for but was never published. It just screamed scam. Way better off safe than sorry. Your pic is beautiful.

thanks, glad y'all like the pic.

what sucks even more is they send you a letter and copyright info for you to fill out (which i don't think i ever got around to doing anyway) which made it seem more legitimate. that's why when i got the announcement about the award thing i was surprised and a little suspicious that it was just by email and not some fancy letter via snail mail.
