Garth's Auctioneers' second annual  "Biography of an Object" writing contest about antiques is accepting entries from June 15 to August 16, 2013. First prize in each category is a book-related group of gift cards, a Nook reader, and subscriptions to antiques-related newspapers and sources--a total value of $1,000. An entry should tell the story of the history and research of the object but also be creative and show the entrant's interest in historical objects. For more information, including entry forms and samples of last year's winning entries, go to
