Fall is upon us! The golden time of the year, the season is shifting, trees changing color, leaves are all over the ground. The spookiest time of the year calls for some interesting stories from all over the world. So the Cosmopolitan room is inviting you to tell us a story. We want to hear what you’ve got to say. Obviously you have to set the scene, so paired with the story, we’re also asking you to submit a picture that captures the spirit of Fall to you. Let the picture guide your story. Tell us how you ended up taking the picture, tell us a made up story based on the picture, tell us a scary Halloween story, tell us whatever you want, get creative with it!
1. Contestants will submit a picture of a landscape, dish, or whatever it may be that represents fall to them!
2. Contestants must upload their photo on Imgur or vgy.me.
