Cryptozoologist Says, ‘Show Me The Yeti!’

PORTLAND, Maine (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A cryptozoologist is encouraging people of all ages to submit photos related to Bigfoot, Nessie or Yeti – a.k.a. The Abominable Snowman – to compete for a grand prize of $5,000.

Duel Masters trading card company is sponsoring the contest, offering a total of $9,000 in prizes for photos that successfully maintain the folklore and further the allure of finding the legendary beasts.

Loren Coleman – a famed cryptozoologist and one of the judges of the competition – says they’re not asking for hard proof. He explains, “It might be a picture of a Native American child with an elder pointing something out on a totem pole” or “a creative picture of a full-scale model of Bigfoot.”

February 3 is the last day to submit photos, and Coleman is surprised there haven’t been more entries thus far. He marvels, “Five thousand dollars for a first prize...That could equip a good expedition for a week. Or it could be a mortgage.”

Photos can be e-mailed to
