Whee — this is FUN! I’m seriously psyched about how many people voted in Round One of my very first LYYP “Best of the Year” contest — you guys are great! Only ONE of you has won anything in Round One, but remember that there are FOUR MORE winners to come in this, the Final Round, AND some special treats for several more of you who are reading this!
So, I know you want to know which of you wonderful voters has won the random drawing for $50 toward an LYYP session. I’m gonna tell you know …… (drumroll please) …. it’s Beth Ann Tambini! Hooray, and congratulations! (And keep on scrolling, ‘cuz that’s not the only good news you’ll be getting today! 😉 )
Okay, it’s time to start Round Two. Before I reveal the finalists and open up the voting, let me remind you real quick about what’s at stake here:
There will be FOUR winners in Round Two.
1. The winner with the most votes on the blog wins the GRAND PRIZE of a 20×24 standout mount valued at $350 (you can choose the image).
2. The runner up wins $250 toward a 2014 LYYP lifestyle session. (Session must be scheduled by November 15, 2014 and is subject to availability).
3. TWO random voters will receive a FREE Spring Mini Session valued at $250! See below to see how to be entered in the drawing for the mini session, and the “Fine Print” for Spring Mini Session details.
How to Win a Free Spring Mini Session
There are TWO ways to win a free Spring Mini Session. In order to increase your chances of winning you should do both of the following:
- Leave a comment on this blog post why YOU want to win a mini session; and/or
- Share the LYYP Best of 2013 album from the LYYP Facebook page on your wall – there’s a link to it HERE. To do this, just click on the ‘Share’ button beneath the album to share it on your wall. (Please let me know that you’ve done this. Those sneaky Facebook elves are hiding that info from me! No matter — I trust you guys … just give me a heads up in a comment or an email 😉 ).
I will randomly select one comment from the blog and one “share” from Facebook and two lucky winners will get a free Spring Mini Session. Woo hoo!
AND BECAUSE I’M FEELING ALL PUMPED UP AND GENEROUS, WHOEVER BOOKS AN LYYP LIFESTYLE SESSION WHILE THE CONTEST IS RUNNING (BY FEBRUARY 6th) WILL RECEIVE A FREE GIFT VALUED AT $125 WITH THEIR ORDER!
- Voting ends at midnight on Thursday, February 6th, and winners will be announced on February 7th.Sessions must be scheduled by November 15, 2014 and are subject to availability.
- Spring Mini Sessions are only offered one spring weekend (late March or early April, TBA) at a location chosen by me. These cannot be rescheduled, but can be transferred.
- Please keep things fair and vote only for one image – IP addresses will be monitored.
- I reserve the right to disqualify entries or terminate/modify contest if necessary.
