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!
Earlier this year, we launched our first photography course, the PL Level 1 Photography Basics. Big thanks to everyone who purchased this course to support our efforts! You have given us tremendous support and now it is time to give some of it back. If you have previously purchased our course, by spending a few minutes to rate it and write some feedback on what you think about it, you will be entered to win a brand new Sony A6000 mirrorless camera!
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.
We recently ran a giveaway with our friends at Nero Trigger and although I messed up the giveaway announcement date (originally posted as September 5, but it was supposed to be September 12), for which I apologize, we still had great participation from our readers with a total of 932 entries. After eliminating the cheaters and duplicate entries, we used a random number generator to pick the winner.
