Participants who Post Their Journals
A list of 2017 participants who are posting their fake journals this year will appear near the top of the right side bar of this blog around April 5. Lists of participants who posted their pages in 2010 through 2016 appear lower in the same column. Please pay them a visit and check out their fake journals.

View a Couple of Roz's Past Fake Journals
Roz's 2009 fake journal takes place in an alternate Twin Cites, where disease has killed the human and bird populations. (It ends up being an upbeat tale of friendship.) Watch a video flip through of Roz's 2009 fake journal here.

Reminder: Please Follow the Instructions for Entering the Prize Drawings

I'm really excited to see so many people are joining in to celebrate International Fake Journal Month this year.

Many people are writing messages to the blog saying that they are joining in, and that's great to hear, and a great way to share what you are going to be working on.

Please note, however, that to enter the drawings for prizes you need to follow the instructions for submitting an entry to me off-blog, as indicated in one of the contest sections.

There are 3 contests and they are listed with links in the right column of this blog under 2011 Contests, as well as repeated here for your ease:

1. Post your own images or send me jpgs to post (if you don't have a blog or Flickr account).

2. Promote the contest by button a linked button on your blog.

3. Do a Project Journal Infiltration within IFJM (more on this later)

If you have written to the blog, but want to enter a drawing, please be sure that you take a moment to follow the instructions for entering the drawings so your entry ends up in the right folder.  Thanks!
