How To Submit Your Work To The Great Tumblr Book Search

Do you think your Tumblr deserves a book deal? Chronicle Books has teamed up with the blog network for a contest looking for The Great Tumblr Book Search.

Chronicle Books has already published a few Tumblr books, including  F*ck! I’m in My Twenties and Dads Are the Original Hipsters.

To enter, simply write a Tumblr post (with your current Tumblr or a new Tumblr) about “your laugh-out-loud funny” scheme for a Tumblr book.”  The post can include text, photos, animated gifs, artwork, videos. Use the tag to join the contest. The grand prize winner “will be considered for publication’ by the publisher.”

The contest closes on February 28th, so start building your gifs today. Check out the official rules at this link.
