Today, we are pleased to announce that we’ve posted the photo for April’s "Captivating Caption Contest.” Pictured right, we have another stunner by famed photographer Joyce McClure.
Sponsored by Waggener Edstrom Worldwide, one of the largest and coolest PR firms in the world, the contest is... well... a fun way to underscore that creativity is an essential part of the PR business.
Each month for 6 months, January through June, a new picture will be posted to the Strumpette website. To enter, you simply write a caption 40 words or less and email it along with your contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org. That's it! At the end of each month, the Strumpette staff will select a winner and send you the dough.
For this month's picture, visit the contest web page here. For the official contest rules, click here.
