Exactly one year ago today, we launched Orangebeanindiana.com, a site dedicated to celebrating Hoosier stories of the past, present and future. It was an ambitious plan, made more ambitious by our juggling full-time jobs, families and friends…and in knowing that over 95% of online businesses fail in less than six months.

Hard work is responsible in part for our success, but the majority of credit goes to YOU, our readers.

To celebrate the site’s first anniversary and to show our sincere thanks, we are sponsoring a 2018 FALL PHOTO CONTEST. We seek the most original fall photo from across the Hoosier state, whether from the shores of the Dunes or the edge of Evansville. We are leaving the subject and content open-ended, as long as its related to both fall and Indiana. Be creative, be original, and be Indiana!

Please don’t recycle photos that have bounced around the Internet for years. Keep it fresh!

Photos can be uploaded on our Facebook page under “Comments” for the FALL PHOTO CONTEST 2018 post (Follow THIS LINK). The contest begins October 15th and all submissions must be in by October 30th, with winners announced November 1st November 10th. Additional boilerplate can be found below.

We wish we could send all of you gift cards in appreciation, but we thought this the next best thing.

With our sincere thanks,

Nicholas Orange & Tim Bean
