So I’m about to do something I’ve never done on this site before – give away something! Since I like taking photos, I’m hoping this is a slightly more interesting entry process.
My friends at Whistler/Blackcomb have given me a sweet little prize pack to give to my readers/followers. All you have to do is show me your favorite winter photo – it doesn’t have to be professional, it just has to be of some kind of winter fun.
It can be anywhere (not just at Whistler), and anytime as long as it’s during the winter. So dig out those polaroids from the 80s or find that awesome photo on your cameraphone from during the Olympics.
Who can and how do you enter?
Anyone can (even you Quebec – well maybe not actually, just say you live in Ontario and we’re cool) and it’s easy to enter – either link it in my comments or tweet a link to your photo (twitpic, flickr, etc. doesn’t matter) on Twitter using the hashtag: #JBSendsU2WB (you’re not required to link to this post in your tweet)
Who decides the winner?
I do…of course. I’ll choose my favorite photo entry from all the entries/tweets and that’s who will win the prize. No magic random voodoo, just my personal favorite of all entries. I’ll retweet the winning photo as well.
When does the contest close?
Contest closes on Thursday, November 25th @ 9am PST. I’ll announce the winner at the Whistler Tweetup later that evening.
What’s the prize?
There will be one prize in which the winner (chosen by me) will receive a one night stay at a Lodging Ovations hotel in Whistler Creekside along with 2 x 1 day lift passes to Whistler/Blackcomb (so you can bring a friend!). You can use the prize anytime during the season up until April 2011. You’re responsible for getting yourself to and from Whistler as well as any other expenses (equipment rentals, food, hotel room porn, etc.).
You can enter as many times as you want but each ‘entry’ has to be a different photo of ‘winter fun’.
UPDATE: After a tough deliberation this morning, I’ve selected Steve (@stv) as the winner of the Whistler prize pack with his cross country skiing photo (taken at Cypress) which really captured the ‘winter fun’ theme I was looking for.
Thanks to everyone who entered – some truly awesome photos were submitted…I’m going to have to do more photo contests like this in the future! An extra special thanks to Whistler/Blackcomb and Lodging Ovations for the prize pack!
Enjoy your trip Steve!
