***WINNERS ANNOUNCED! CONGRATS TO STACY SHAEFFER AND STEPHANIE RYAN!!!***
Happy Love Day! I’m feeling all kinds of love today, so let’s give away some free stuff!
What’s the contest?
Each new year, I choose one favorite image from each session from the previous year and make a “Best of” board on Pinterest. Well, the Best of 2013 is finally up (I know, it’s February and I’m JUST getting around to it). The contest is easy. Scroll down to the entry form at the bottom of this post and vote for your favorite image on the Best of 2013 board. You can earn up to five entries by completing the other entry options.
What’s the prize?
There are actually TWO prizes. One winner will be chosen randomly, and the second winner will be chosen by their image on the Best of 2013 board having the most votes. Both winners will have their choice of either a photography session, or a three hour mentoring session (online or in person). A session can be won and given to someone else of winner’s choosing.
*Contest ends February 21st at 3 pm EST.
*Photography session includes a 1-2 hour session and 30-40 digital images on a disc.
