Did a memorable someone in your life die this past year?
Pay tribute to his or her memory by entering an image of the person in the New York Times’ The Lives They Lived issue.
This issue is an annual celebration of some of the most intriguing non-celebrities who have died during the past year. It could be a wedding snapshot, a travel brochure, a book cover, a blueprint of a dream house: any photograph or image that captures one moment from the life of the person you’d like to remember.
Isn’t that the power of a photograph? To share important memories? Whenever I ask people why they bother to photograph anything, invariably, the first answer is “memories.” “Sharing” comes pretty close to the top of the list.
You get 200 words to describe why you chose the photo you submit. Make them count.
Your photograph may run on nytimes.com or in the printed issue of the magazine published on Dec. 30. If you would like your submission to be featured in the magazine, it is especially important to provide your contact information and submit a hi-resolution image (at least 300k or 300 dpi).

Deadline for submissions is Dec. 10.
As long as you’re writing about your loved one, share what you write here on Clickago Storywerks, too. I would love to hear it and share with others.
