A huge congratulations to all who entered the End of 2014 Summer Blues Photography Contest, hosted by Nations Photo Lab and myself. We have named our photography contest winners!! We had some snags with uploading of entries after only a few days into the contest but, luckily, several hundred more images were uploaded with the designated contest hashtag – and we definitely found them all (and we found some absolutely gorgeous work!) It wasn’t easy to narrow the photography contest finalists, but we managed to get to our top three winners. A big CONGRATS to the following winners: 1st Place: Nicole Brown 2nd Place: Rachel Piersig 3rd Place: Jenny Gibson Winners, please email Allie at Nations Photo Lab to redeem your lovely prizes, which include generous gift cards from Nations Photo Lab, my Posing Playbook…for Kids Who Don’t Do Posing, a feature on the NPL Newsletter, and all kinds of winning image love. We so enjoyed seeing all the incredible imagery come in for this – there will be another photography contest coming up very soon, this time with a new seamless platform for unlimited entries! Check out both Nations Photo Lab and Tamara Lackey on Facebook for announcements for the next one. And don’t forget – if you are printing your work (and hopefully you are printing your work), you can use the following promo codes for some amazing savings: For those who have never used Nations Photo Lab to print their work before, you can use the code FALL50TL 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 CANVASLUVTL to get 15% off any canvas work– and that is even on top of some of their frequent sales, so that can really add up to a lot of savings on beautifully-printed work. Both of these codes expire on October 31st, 2014, and the CANVASLUVTL code can be used repeatedly until then! Congratulations, again, to all the photography contest winners – and to so many who entered their images – you should be very proud of your beautiful work.
