Voting for the Gwinnett Baby Photo Contest will soon begin and the excitement is mounting.
Over the past few weeks I had the good fortune to meet some wonderful people and had the privilege of photographing many beautiful babies of all ages. It was great fun and hope that the participants feel the same. Each baby’s parents did a great job selecting their image for the contest. In my opinion, everyone is a winner.
When Does The Voting Begin?
At midnight EDT (UTC -4), on April 30th, you can place your vote for your favorite baby image. Voting will continue for 72 hours and at midnight on May 3rd the polls will close. Anyone can vote. Only one vote is allowed per IP (computer), and this will be monitored by the polling site. Real-time, unofficial results will be continuously displayed (as percentages) on the polling site. Votes will be tallied and the official winners will be announced at noon, on May 4th.
What are the Prizes?
Prizes wll be awarded for the top three images based on the voting results. These prizes are gift certificates for products and services at David Pope Photography, and must be redeemed before July 31st, 2010. Gift certificates are valued at $500 for first place, $150 for second place, and $50 for third place.
Is There a New Prize?
At the last minute, we decided to add a special new “Fan (Like) Prize” to the contest. A $100 gift certificate, similar to those described above, will be awarded for the image that attracts the most Facebook fans to our fan page at http:/www.facebook.com/david.pope.photo . So, pester, cajole, or beg your Facebook friends to fan-up (recently renamed by Facebook to “like”), and then tell them to send us a mandatory Facebook message containing only a contestant’s number from the PollDaddy voting site. Existing David Pope Photography fans also can be counted if they send us a similar Facebook message. One message will be counted per fan. The contestant associated with the highest number of fan messages wins the Fan (Like) Prize.
