Summer Time Fun Photo Contest
How do you enter?
Submit a photo showing us what you do for fun in the summer by e-mailing it to SummerTimeFun@Natural-Beauty.com. The subject of your e-mail will be the "title" of the picture and the body of the e-mail will be the "description" of the photo. Neither one is actually required. It will show up on our flickr page at http://www.flickr.com/photos/natural-beautyphotography/ in just a few minutes.
Why use Flickr?
Most photographers do this type of contest through facebook, why aren't we doing that? It is against facebook policy to run a promotion using facebook's like, etc. as an entry mechanism. I know of a photographer who lost their facebook page - and therefore lost all of their followers as well. I don't want to take the chance of losing all of my followers. However, this doesn't mean that you can't post a link to the picture on your facebook page for all of your friends to go vote!
Facebook Page Guidelines - Section E. v. "You must not use Facebook features or functionality, such as the Like button, as a voting mechanism for a promotion."
What will you win?
We are giving away 2 individual sessions with this contest. These can be in studio or on location and are for the person or one of the people who are in the photo.
How do you win?
1) The first winner will win by having the most comments on their photo. Simply share a link to your photo on our flickr page with all of your friends and ask them to leave a comment. Only one comment per user will be counted. The photo with the most unique comments will receive a free portrait session. Don't have a flickr account? No worries, you can log in using your facebook account.
2) The second winner will be chosen by me and a few facebook friends who aren't from around here (and therefore don't know who anyone is). This winner will be chosen for creativity, uniqueness and staying with the theme of the contest.
When can you enter?
The contest starts NOW! It will go through 5:00 p.m. Central Time Wednesday, July 18th. We will announce the winners around 5:00 p.m. on Friday, July 20th.
Go ahead and have portraits taken now. If you have portaits taken before July 18th and you win, we will give you your session fee PLUS an extra $25 in credit towards your portrait order!
A great idea for a session right now is a pool session. Beat the heat and get portraits you can't get any other time of year. We'll come to the pool and get great portraits, often you can't even tell they're taken at the pool. We have the ability to get some really fun underwater portraits as well.
Get your favorite Summer Time Fun photo sent in now and contact us to setup your portrait appointment today!
