Hey BillionGravers! Here in the US, it’s Veterans’ Day on Monday and what better way to honor our veterans than by documenting their headstones?

We want to encourage all of you to head out to any military cemeteries near you and start documenting these headstones, especially this weekend! So, we are giving away $25 Amazon gift cards to the top three people who upload the most images from a U.S. Military cemetery this weekend!

25 Amazon gift cardYou have this whole weekend (from Friday, November 8th, to Monday, November 11th at midnight GMT) to take pictures and upload them. We will tally the winners and post them on Tuesday.

Let’s do something to let our military veterans know how much we appreciate everything they have done—even if it’s as simple as photographing their headstone.

The Rules

-Make sure you have permission and are welcome to take pictures in the military cemetery before doing so. We recommend talking to the cemetery caretaker/sexton before taking pictures in ANY cemetery. Remember, private cemeteries require permission of the owner before taking any pictures.
-Winners will be announced at the end of the weekend (November 12) on the BillionGraves blog.
-Promotion is open to all to participate for free. Registration is required.
-More than one individual may contribute to a single account, however, the limit is one prize redemption per BillionGraves account.
-Items will ship in 2-3 weeks after contest closes for winners in the U.S.
-Recipients will be required to provide a mailing address for physical items and their choice of which gift card. Please make sure your email is up to date on your BillionGraves account. We will be emailing that address if you are one of our lucky winners!
