Giveaway Finalists: THE RETURNED

The Returned Jason Mott CoverAll over the world people’s loved ones are returning from beyond. No one knows how or why this is happening, whether it’s a miracle or a sign of the end. 

If you got a chance to return from death and revisit one place in the world, where would you go? In this giveaway sponsored by The Returned by Jason Mott, we asked our readers to submit an original image that presents the place to which they would most want to be Returned. It could be a photograph, a painting, a drawing, a collage, a work of word art, or, well, just about anything original.

We searched through all the entries and picked our favorite images, each one a place that we wouldn’t mind Returning to ourselves. Check out the images below, and click through to read their stories. Click the Facebook “like” button on your favorite post to cast your vote. The winner will be the entry that receives the most Facebook “likes” by 11:59pm Eastern, Wednesday, September 11.
