Big thanks to everyone who participated in our Instagram contest. We have had more than 6 thousand followers to choose from together with our friends at MIOPS and we are happy to finally announce the lucky winner of the Fuji X-T20 mirrorless camera.
It has been a while since we have given away a camera and we are excited once again to host another giveaway for our readers! This time, we are partnering up with our friends at MIOPS to give away a brand spanking new Fuji X-T20! The giveaway rules are going to be quite simple as usual – all you have to do is follow us and MIOPS on Instagram and you will be automatically entered into the drawing. We will announce one lucky random winner at the end of May.
It is time for yet another awesome giveaway / contest for our dear readers and this time we are partnering up with the folks at KeepSnap to give away some amazing prices! All you have to do is submit your best outdoor / event portrait photograph and you will have 3 different chances to win prizes! If you have never heard of KeepSnap, check out our overview post, where we’ve introduced the company and the service they provide to photographers. The beauty of what we are doing with keepsnap, is that this is a combination of a giveaway and a contest. If the portrait image you submit is so good that it is picked as the winner by the judges, you win an 85mm f/1.8 lens of choice, along with Spyder5 Express. If you don’t win the grand prize, you still have a chance to win the second prize – a 35mm f/1.8 lens. All the participants will be included in this random giveaway. And if your photo is strong enough for PL readers to vote for it, you have another chance to win the third prize, which is a 50mm f/1.8 lens, along with yearly access to KeepSnap directory. If you are not interested in any of the prizes, you will have a choice to select the cash prize, which is basically the dollar equivalent of the value of the prize. Cool huh? Well, what are you waiting for – time to enter this awesome giveaway / contest!
Recently we’ve hosted another giveaway and this time it was for those who previously bought our Level 1 Photography Basics Course. In our post back in December of 2015, we asked those who have purchased the course to write honest reviews about our course for a chance to win the Sony A6000. It looks like few people were actually interested in this camera, because only 22 people actually participated in this contest, making the chance of winning 1 in 22. Oh well, I guess it is good for those who participated!
Big thanks to everyone who participated in our recent ZTE Spro 2 review and giveaway! We love giving out prizes to our readers and this time we have a superb prize – a great portable projector and a mobile hotspot worth $500. Our random number generator gave us five comments from which we will be picking a winner.
A couple of weeks back, AT&T sent me a ZTE Spro 2 Smart Projector to review and give away to one of our readers. I loved the idea of doing this, not only because it is a neat little smart device that you can use as a mobile hotspot and as a projector, but also because with the holiday spirit, why not gift one of these away to one of PL’s readers? After-all, our site is all about giving! Speaking of gifts, hope you’ll get what you need this holiday season, because it does not always happen. What do you do with those unwanted gifts then? I find regifting to work the best. For example, on my birthday earlier this year I received a gift card to a store I never shop from, so I decided to regift it to a friend who does. Worked out nicely and I did not even have to think much about buying a present! Now the question is, if you win this giveaway, will it be a keeper? Anyway, before I go into the giveaway details, let’s take a closer look at what the ZTE Spro 2 is capable of and what you can use it for.
At the start of this week the LoveCases giveaway has ended and, as always, we were tasked with drawing five winners randomly. A whopping 747 of you have chosen to take part in the contest! And now that the winners have all been contacted and the packages are already shipped out, here is the list of the people to receive their new bags and accessories.
I will start this giveaway announcement with a short story. Why? Because people working at LoveCases are brilliant. So here it goes. A few months ago, I was contacted by a chap named David on behalf of an UK-based camera bag and accessory store, LoveCases.co.uk. He made a proposal to me – their team would send me a bag of my choice, and I would review it for them. I had nothing against the idea, why would I? There was only one condition that I thought was important we established – no matter what it was that they sent me, my impressions would always be my own, honest and unaffected by anyone else. Just as they would be if I had purchased the product myself. And you know what? A little while later, I wrote this.
In celebration of the launch of the new MIOPS camera trigger, which we wrote about earlier, our good friends at Nero Trigger want to give away the current version of the trigger ($199 value, read our in-depth review) to one lucky PL reader! To enter this giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment below with your email address (so that we could contact you) and we will choose a random winner on September 12, 2014. Must be at least 18 years old to enter. Giveaway is open to all countries! Only one entry per person.
Thanks to our friends at Fstoppers, we also organized a Nikon D610 / Canon 6D / Sony A7 Giveaway, which ended on Christmas, just like our Fuji X-E1 kit giveaway (congrats to Charles Lennox once again!). This giveaway was much bigger than the Fuji one, because we received a total of 33523 entries (Facebook and non-Facebook participants combined). Actually, the number was much bigger than that (over 40K), but all those were fake accounts that were disqualified. With all the fake email addresses from yahoo.de, inbox.ru, mail.ru, bk.ru, gmail.com and hotmail.com, and a boatload of freshly created Facebook accounts, it took me a while to clean up the list to make it fair to all real participants.
