As much as we love posting our photos & sharing the Farm with you here on the blog & via social media, we want to get to know you too! We like to think of all of us as one big, happy family and wanted to give you an opportunity to show us a little bit about what’s going on in your world.
That’s how we came up with the idea of a Reader Photo Contest.
It’s a great way for you to share a little bit of your world with us–as well as the rest of our Readers (and pick up some awesome prizes too!).
Here’s how it works:
→ Each month, we’ll give you a theme & a deadline.
→ We’ll announce the theme in a blog post.
(Hint: If you’re signed up for the Newsletter, you’ll also get an advance email about each months theme. AND,..when you enter by replying to the email, you’ll be allowed TWO entries instead of one!)
Now would be a good time to sign up:
→ You take a picture– with your phone, with your point & shoot or with your fancy pants way too much work for me, zillion zoom lens camera (don’t be offended…I’m just jealous!). Whatever works for you.
→ You email the picture to us at: email@example.com.
(As much fun as we know it’s going to be seeing your pictures– please only send one per month/theme. Unless you’re signed up for the Newsletter & entering by replying to that. Then you get …. how many? That’s right! TWO Entries!)
→ You post a comment either on the blog where we announce the contest, or on our Facebook page & and let us know that you’ve sent us an entry. (Don’t post your picture in the blog comments or on the Facebook page, please & thanks! Just leave a comment so we know to watch for your email)
→ We’ll pick our 6 favorites & feature them, along with the winner,
in a new post specifically for the current month’s winners.
→ The owner of our favorite photo each month wins a prize!
(Prizes will vary from month to month, but they’ll be cool, I promise. Most often, the prize will be something from the Farm or the Farm Store. But occasionally, if I find a product that I just know you can’t live without, the prize may be sponsored. When that’s the case– I’ll be sure & let you know.)
And that’s It! Pretty simple stuff.
You can check out the Reader Photo Contests Blog to find each months contest, as well as previous months.
