Thanks so much to our readers for contributing to the success of our Facebook page and the community of photographers there. To have gathered more than 20,000 followers in just over 10 months really says something about the passion people feel for photography, and the commitment that PPA members and Professional Photographer readers have to their profession.
To celebrate this milestone, we're going to have SEVEN DAYS of product giveaways. We want you to be able to concentrate on your clients or your family on the weekends and holidays, so the GIVEAWAY DAYS will be November 19, 22, 23, 24, 29, 30 and December 1. There will be ONE WINNER for each day's package of prizes. You can enter all of the Giveaways. We'll select a random number (via an online random number generator) from the number of comments submitted for each giveaway, and the commenter corresponding to that number will win. We'll announce the winner just prior to the next Giveaway announcement and contact the winners via their Facebook page (so be sure that your settings allow us to send you a private message!).
Our Facebook Giveaway tradition has always involved asking the entrants to contribute a positive piece of information or advice when you make your Comment to enter the drawing. This time, we'd like you to go just a little further.
HOW TO ENTER AND GIVEAWAY ETIQUETTE
1. Please visit the Facebook pages of the companies that have donated the prizes and click on their Like button. This does not statistically increase your chances of winning, but it is a nice thing to do. You'll find links to their Facebook page here where we'll list the day's prizes.
2. We'll post each day's comment question or request here with the prize listing. Return to the Professional Photographer Facebook Page and POST YOUR COMMENT, answering that question or request, ON THE GIVEAWAY ENTRY ONLY to be included in the drawing.
3. DO NOT post your entry request on the Professional Photographer Facebook page WALL. We'll delete it. The only method of entry is through COMMENTS on FACEBOOK on the specific GIVEAWAY DAY post. If you don't see a "Write a comment …" field, it means you have not clicked Like on our page. You'll find that button at the top of the page. DO NOT comment on this instruction post. That will not count as an entry.
4. If you are one of our lucky winners but cannot use a portion of the prizes that you've won, please return to that Giveaway post, find another photographer who entered the drawing, and make a new friend and share your winnings!
Now, let's get on with the giving!
