Photographer's Forum

A friend sent a link to this forum that was posted in 2007 regarding Photographer's Forum Photo contests. I would like to ask on here if someone has entered this contest in the past, received a "winner's letter" and ordered the book. I recently entered this contest and received the aforementioned letter. (1,600 photos chosen out of 10,000 the letter stated). Before I spend out $55 for the book, I would like to know personal experience from someone who actually "won" a contest with this company and what their opinion is, as to size of book, quality of book, size of photos in the book.

I know there are scams out there such as this, but I really want personal experience, rather than generalities.
