It's a phrase used in an email sent out by the organisers of a photo contest scam run by circle of photographers, or at least someone exploiting their website.

They use a phoney photo contest with a potential $5000 prize... but you have to buy their manuscript to qualify.... they say it is priced at $39.00... but the shopping cart mysteriously jumps to $80 when you try to check out.

OF course... you may of heard the phrase in a totally different context.

Lol... my wife entered one of those contests too, but for poetry.

She submitted a poem entitled "Ode to Mr Smiley" with the famous "How shall I compare thee?" from Shakespeare word for word.

and they said that she won and her entry will be published in their "journal". Of course, you have to pay $50 or some ridiculous amount for their "journal"...

Did you win a competition? Now I am curious about your announcement....

I suppose it's not exactly a scam... if you want to give your ego a (albeit pretty fake) boost, then it would be kinda cool seeing your photo in a official looking publication.

The scam bit is how they probably declare every a "winner" and get people to purchase the books...

I am sorry, really Sad

And they don't even know how to write "asymmetric" :/

Some people....

Cheer up!! I am sure you will win a true competition one of these days, your pictures are great!! Smile
