2011 photo of the year contest | bismarck newborn photographer

EDIT:  Apparantly, I’m still living in 2011.  I meant for this to end Thursday so that I could announce the winners on Friday.  The dates have been changed to reflect that.  The voting will end on Thursday, January 12 at 9 pm CST.  Sorry about the confusion!

It’s time for my photo of the year contest!  I just love putting this together because it is so much fun looking back through a year’s worth of photos, reminiscing about each session with my amazing clients and, once again, gushing over how adorable each child is.  The bad part…it’s so hard to choose just one favorite from each session!  It is such an honor for me to have the opportunity to photograph all of these babies and families, and I am humbled when I look back at all of the support my client’s have given me in 2011.  I can’t say it enough…THANK YOU!

Onto the contest…I’m giving away two prizes for 2011 clients, and also throwing in a bonus, open to any and all.  So, there will be THREE prizes up for grabs!  Clients, you’re going to want to share this with all of your friends and family for your chance to win!  Call, email, text, Facebook, Twitter, whatever you need to do!

1 – The client image with the most votes will receive a 16×20 gallery wrapped canvas ($350 value) of the image of their choice from their past session or an upcoming session in 2012.

2 – The client image with the second most votes will receive a $100 print credit toward a session in 2012.

3 – Leave a comment on this blog post below.  Only one comment is allowed per person, but an extra entry can be earned by posting about this contest on your Facebook wall and then letting me know you’ve done so by posting on the Everyday Art Photography Facebook page.  One comment will be choosen, at random, to receive a complimentary mini session ($600 value)!  The mini session will include a 20-30 minute session with me, an online gallery of 10 images to choose from, and 5 digital files of your choice.  The mini session must take place in the Bismarck area before October 2012.  It is limited to immediate family members only, and cannot be used on a newborn session.  If you are not able to use the mini session, you are welcome to gift it to someone else.

  • Voting begins now, and will end on January 12, 2012 at 9 pm CST.
  • Only one vote per person.  IP addresses will be monitored. Results will not be seen on the poll. 
  • I will annouce the winners on January 13.
