Can we use photos in entries? Graphs? Pictures of monkeys? Charts? Sea Shanties? CAn they be fiction? Poetry? Youtube videos? Done in mime?
This is actually several questions but for me they come down to the same answer. It’s your entry. If you want to do it – do it. If you think “wow, this is a really great entry”, do it.
Just understand that other people might not like it, and they might not vote for it.
Or, they might. . .
More often than not they might like it one week, or two, but if you keep coming back with the same thing they will want to beat you upside the head.
So I’d be careful. Risks are great. But make the ones that you feel passionate about, not just to do it.
