Contest goal:

Many of us help organize our lives by making lists. We've made shopping lists, "things to do" lists, and even ideas we may have had for contests. Enter your most artistic take of a hand-written list. NO PRINTOUTS! It MUST be hand-written and it must not be staged. Have fun and good luck.

Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

friiskiwi: What do yu mean not be staged? ( 5 years and 1744 days ago )
jawshoewhah: What I meant when I said that was, don't just write up a list of things to photograph. Find an actual list you made that had an intended purpose (like a grocery shopping list), other than just being an entry in this contest. ( 5 years and 1744 days ago )
friiskiwi: I got a Blackberry, don't handwrite shopping list anymore. ( 5 years and 1744 days ago )
xogx2002: Had a terrific idea until I read it can't be staged, that takes some fun out of this. I'll have to hit my grandma up if she still makes lists. ( 5 years and 1744 days ago )
kyricom: Maybe we could find Nixon's "enemies list" ( 5 years and 1744 days ago )
: hmmm, I agree, not sure about just finding a list,or not being staged!! does take a lot out of the exercise. ( 5 years and 1743 days ago )
Mikaelbg: Hand-written list? Some people still do that? You guys need an iPhone hahaha :P ...well now I need to find one, uh... ( 5 years and 1743 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Some of us don't have an iphone. ( 5 years and 1743 days ago )
MnMCarta: I was lost at "hand-written". lol I have lists all over my phone but I can't hand write anything if I plan on reading it when I actually go to fill it! ( 5 years and 1743 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Well there is one advantage to hand-written lists: They don't require a monthly fee or a recharge. ( 5 years and 1743 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Keep in mind, contest guidelines to not restrict the list to be written on paper. ( 5 years and 1743 days ago )
Nator: How would anyone know if I staged a list...really ( 5 years and 1743 days ago )
adeincyprus: oh come on, this is pathetic, who's gonna know if a list is written today, or two years ago............ ( 5 years and 1743 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Good point Ade, but those that look like they could not have been staged will be more impressive. I'd give some ideas but I'm probably going to use them. ( 5 years and 1743 days ago )
FallingHorse: I must be the only person left that goes shopping with a hand written list - it would take me forever to text it or whatever it is that you do on the phone ( 5 years and 1743 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Also, doesn't have to be YOUR list. xogx2002 had a good idea. I'm sure some of you have kids that believe in Santa Claus and they made a list. Don't tell me none of you don't scrap book that stuff? ( 5 years and 1742 days ago )
kyricom: I still use lists. I just don't keep them when I've used them. But lord, I'm sure as hell not wasting my money on an iPhone (or equivilent). just flush your money down the toilet and save time ( 5 years and 1741 days ago )
MnMCarta: oh that's right... I do have my santa list... just made it the other day! hehehe ( 5 years and 1740 days ago )
jawshoewhah: I know kyrcom, write your list on a 20 dollar bill next time. That might work. ( 5 years and 1740 days ago )
GiaArt: Santa gets Emails right?? jk I had write lists all the time but I think that's the OCD in me lol ( 5 years and 1739 days ago )
MnMCarta: seems like this turned into a "lists" contest rather than a "shopping" list but some good entries none the less. ( 5 years and 1735 days ago )
jawshoewhah: That's pretty much how it was supposed to be from the beginning. ( 5 years and 1734 days ago )
