Best of Burque
Best of Burque Photo Deadline Extended to Noon on Monday March 24
You can email Best of Burque photos to firstname.lastname@example.org now.
I wanted to enter Gomez in Best of Burque, but when I tried to send his picture in (to me) there was some kind of … photorazzle.boogerbomb thing I had to register on … and then the phone rang, and I spilled my coffee, and Dr. Cyclops was on and I just never got back to it. Does everything have to be so complicated?
No, it doesn’t. And it’s not fair we should miss out on so many photos of babies, dogs, cars and tattoos because of some complicated thing we set up a few years ago. My apologies to the 50 or so of you who jumped through the hoops.
Now you can just email your photos to email@example.com by noon on Monday, March 24. We’ll put some of them in our Best of Burque issue, on stands Thursday, April 3. (Yes, I know it will actually be out on Wednesday April 2, but we like making that complicated, too. Don’t ask. It’s a weird little publishing thing.)
And remember, you still have until midnight tonight (Tuesday, March 18) to submit your Best of Burque votes, or even just change them around in case you just discovered a great new … furniture store or something.
Also, dog photos aside, we really do just count up the votes with no monkey business—so don’t call me complaining if your grandma’s nicknack nook didn’t win an award. It’s not my fault. Believe in us. Believe in the system.
