To celebrate its one-year anniversary – and generate more proof of the wider appeal of superheroes than even superhero publishers are sometimes willing to embrace – the spectacular Girls Love Superheroes blog is having a birthday contest for new submissions:
I created the blog to show that wanting to be a superhero or loving superheroes or playing with superheroes is not just a “boy” thing. I just love getting the pictures from parents or other relatives as so many of them have wonderful stories. And how can anyone resist the pictures? And how can anyone not look at those pictures and not see that little girls are an audience waiting to be nurtured into paying consumers?I’m very proud of the blog and thrilled with the response that it got. I’m also very thankful for the web sites that have featured or promoted it including Oprah.com. But lately the pictures haven’t been coming in as much so its time to prime the pump! And with Free Comic Book Day coming up it would seem the perfect time to do it as many comic shops have kids activities or costume contests.
And to encourage the submission of said photos I am ponying up prizes! Every photo submitted from the now from the month of May will be submitted into a drawing for prizes. For every 20 pictures I get I’ll add a prize and then draw a winner in June.
Prizes include Lego Wonder Woman key chains, Mattel Infinite Heroes 3-packs and more. Submissions details can be found here. Go and submit! It’s a good blog and promoting important things.
