It’s been a very busy year – thank you all so much!! So busy, though, that I haven’t had much time to come up with great contest ideas – so because of that Scott and I have decided to do a big contest!
One of my favorite things is holidays. Holidays, to me, are about getting together with family and taking time to simply enjoy each other. I also adore traditions. Scott and I have started a number of traditions that we continue with in our family, and to me it makes the holidays even more special.
HOLIDAY PHOTOS! As I just said, I love the holidays, so I want to see YOUR holiday photos!! Send me your favorite holiday photos! What holiday? Christmas, Easter, Hanukkah, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Valentine’s day – if it’s a known holiday, it counts!! What type of photos am I looking for? I’m looking for photos that show the holiday in the way that you see it. The joy of Christmas, the stuffing meal you get on Thanksgiving, the love on Valentine’s day, all showcased in one photo. I want to see the holiday through your eyes.
What can you win if your photo wins? Well this time there is going to be TWO winners! It’s been so long since I’ve had a contest that I figured it was only fair to do a huge one, and this is huge! There will be two winners: the people’s choice winner and the grand prize winner! The People’s Choice winner will receive a $45 Gift Certificate to Randi Lee Photography, and the Grand Prize Winner will receive a $75 Gift Certificate to Randi Lee Photography!
Because there are two winners we figured that we would have them win two different ways! The People’s Choice winner will, as you’ve probably guessed, be selected by you! All submissions will be put on the Randi Lee Photography Facebook page. All “likes” and “comments” will be counted and the photo with the most combined likes and comments will be the People’s Choice winner!
The Grand Prize winner will be selected by a panel of 5 judges which will include not only myself but a few other Vermont photographers as well! THAT winner will receive the $75 Gift Certificate!
If you want your photo to stand out, make sure that it’s fairly easy to figure out which holiday you are showcasing. This doesn’t mean that the photo has to be completely obvious (you don’t NEED to have a Christmas Tree or a Jack-o-lantern in the picture), but it should be fairly easy for most people to figure out the holiday simply by seeing the photo. Also, make sure that you put a great caption on the photo! A great caption, or a great title, can help to make clear exactly what you’re trying to say with the picture.
Since you have two chances to win, you can submit TWO photos! All photos need to be submitted to email@example.com by 8 PM on November 5, 2014. Any photos submitted must be photos that either you have taken or that you have been giving the exclusive rights to use. If they are professionally taken photos, you do need the photographer’s permission to use the photo in the contest. All submissions will be put on the Randi Lee Photography Facebook page by 12 PM on November 6, 2014 which is when voting begins! The photo that has the most combined likes and comments will win, although multiple comments by the same person on a photo will not be counted – only one comment per person per photo will be counted. Voting is open from 12 PM on November 6, 2014 until 8 PM on November 14th, 2014! The winner of both the popular vote and the panel of judges will be officially announced by 8 PM on November 17, 2014.
