Photography Contests 2014:  Summer Blues

I’m teaming up with the friendly, talented and artistic peeps at Nations Photo Lab to host a fun, new photography contest, celebrating our collective Summer Blues – as in, summer is fading, school is starting back up, and vacations are winding down. So let’s share what you shot this summer – we want to show your work some love! Together with Nations Photo Lab, we are launching this brand new photography contest today. Simply post your favorite image to this Yahoo/Flickr group before September 5th (midnight EST) to be entered to win. And, yes, we know it’s very tough to narrow down your favorites – so you may post up to five of your favorites images to still be within the bounds of this contest.  International entries are welcome, as well, as long as Nations Photo Lab can ship prints to a US address. ***NOTE:  If you are having problems uploading your image (some people are getting error messages, but it seems to be a random Yahoo thing  – NPL has submitted a request for them to fix it), feel free to post your image on the Nations Photo Lab Facebook page, on instagram or on twitter with the hashtag #NPLTamaraSummerBlues. We will definitely pull all entries together, which is why adding the hashtag is absolutely necessary – but, if you are having an upload issue, that shouldn’t prevent a contest entry! If you have any questions, post them in the comments below, and we will be sure to answer them as speedily as possible : ) So, what are the prize details?  We will select three lucky winners to receive the following lovely prizes: 1st Prize $250 Nations Photo Lab gift certificate Tamara Lackey’s Posing Playbook (valued at $89)

Just post your work to this Yahoo/Flickr group to enter! IN ADDITION, Nations Photo Lab is offering two fabulous options to spend less and get more – > for those who have never used Nations Photo Lab to print their work before, you can use the code SUMMER50FREE to get $50 off your first order with them (just remember to use the ROES software you can download on their site to be able to use the promo code!). For those who already are customers of Nations Photo Lab, don’t worry – you are not being left out.  You can use SUMMER40OFF to get 40% off any ongoing print orders – and that is even on top of some of their frequent big sales, so that can really add up to a lot of savings on beautifully-printed work.  Both of these codes expire on August 31, 2014, and the SUMMER40OFF code can be used repeatedly until then, so ENJOY IT!   Photography Contests 2014: Group Rules, Legalese, and The Fine Print This group has been created for U.S. participants to submit photos to Nations Photo Lab to be entered in a contest to win a special prize.
