Marilyn Monroe by Andre de Dienes

My prize: Authentic print of Marilyn Monroe in 1949 by Andre de Dienes

Back in June, I joined ThisIsMarilyn.com, which is an online Marilyn Monroe community similar to Facebook. Together with One West Publishing and Marilyn Remembered Fan Club, ThisIsMarilyn held a contest giving away $100,000 worth of vintage Marilyn Monroe prints!  All you had to do was become an active member and upload photos, videos, write blogs and interact with other fans. The more active you were, the more points you would receive. The contest lasted from June 1st (the launch of the website and Marilyn’s birthday) and ended on August 4th (Marilyn’s death anniversary).

I came in 13th place and received a 16×20 inch silver gelatin print of Marilyn Monroe photographed by Andre de Dienes in 1949! It’s a gorgeous print and I can’t wait to have it framed for my new home. I would like to thank Alex Brunning of ThisIsMarilyn, Mr. Chuck Murphy of One West Publishing and Mrs. de Dienes for such an amazing prize!
