I have a local Michigan photographer friend – John Dykstra – who has been fortunate enough to have several images selected in the semi-final round of a special American Life photo contest sponsored by Capital One and Newsweek.
I am going to post his images here – he would love for you to vote on your favorite image. The top 50 images will be narrowed down – and the winning photographer will receive grand prize of $6,000 or $7,000 dollars and a trip to meet with the art director of Newsweek magazine.
You have until February 6, 2009 – to cast your votes for your favorite image. You can vote up to five times per day, so spread the word and tell your friends to vote for your favorite! In addition, use the Facebook application to post your favorite photo to your page and drum up more votes.
