Photography is awesome. Also, getting great photography gear can be expensive. Luckily, the good peeps at Adorama are currently holding TWO new contests, where you can win up to $1100 in giveaway money to spend at their online superstore. What can you buy? Nearly everything, it seems – but, if you want any suggestions to help narrow it down, here are some of my favorites. The first giveaway opportunity is their You Be The Host Contest, where you get an opportunity to host a show on AdoramaTV. I’ve been hosting reDefine Show on Adorama TV for three years now – if you’ve ever been interested in hosting a show, trust me, it’s a lot of fun to do. All you have to do is send them your very own AdoramaTV video, up to 15 minutes long, and you get a chance to win one of four $250 Adorama gift cards and join me, Joe McNally, Mark Wallace, Richard Harrington, Bryan Peterson, and Gavin Hoey as a Host on AdoramaTV. The categories are: Most Educational Most Inspirational Most Creative Most Humorous You can enter here – just remember that the contest ends on July 1st, 2014! Also, if you’re in New York or want to head there, I’ll be joining about 20,000 people on Sunday, June 8th for their family-friendly fourth annual Street Fair, in support of the Boomer Esiason Foundation to fight Cystic Fibrosis. I was there last year, too, presenting under their main tent – was quite a cool mix of fun silliness (think a petting zoo on a closed-down 18th Street in Manhattan next to juggling giant men on stilts), wonderful opportunities to meet with some major product manufacturers, a chance to mingle with a few celebrities – and the option to see some great programs on photography: Lastly! But not leastly! Here is the SECOND contest, which you can enter quite easily, right here on my blog. We’ll choose the WINNER of the $100 Gift Card to spend at Adorama this Monday, May 12th. Here’s the new, very easy way to enter, via this fancy-shaped rectangle widget device: a Rafflecopter giveaway Good Luck To All !!!
