OK, that’s it! We’ve considered suggestions, pondered requests and have made our decision. We’re on a mission. Are You The Next Top Yoga Journal Cover Model? Maybe! But for those of you who aren’t chosen for the glossy spotlight we’ve got your rockin’ cover op right here on YD! sort of. It’s the YogaDork (Shadow) Cover Model Contest! And it’s so on.
For our version, it’s not so much a contest as a declaration of satya (truth): We ask you send a photo of who you are, as a yogi, a real person, in any shape, size, age, gender or color/clinginess of clothing. We’re not selling magazines. No fancy poses required, but by all means go for what speaks YOU. Everyone is welcome to submit. Hey it’s no magazine cover, but your photo will be proudly featured in our gallery! (note: while there’s no one “winner” per se, stay tuned, there will likely be goodies handed out down the road for participants, TBA.)
So here we go! In the spirit of #365yoga and in the face of godlike yogalomaniacs ’tis time to express yourself and share with the world that yogis don’t come cut from a mold, that we all have a unique voice, and it’s as rainbow as Oprah’s OWN logo. JOIN US!
You’ve got three ways to enter:
- Email your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Facebook: Post your photo on the YD wall, or on your own page and tag YogaDork.
- Twitpic your photo! @reply us @yogadork, and use #yjcoverdork (suggested by our first cover entry @cwlucas)
Be creative, but keep it clean! Please use your discretion and taste in choosing your photos. We reserve the right to refrain from posting any photos displaying offensive content, ‘isms, or super lewdness. Save that for your home practice.
Send in photos by March 29th, which is when the YJ contest ends. By the way, we still encourage you to submit your photo to Yoga Journal. We’d love to see you on the cover.
You asked for it. Game on!
