Subscriber Favorites And A Winner!

The Top 9?

Who in the world does a top 9? Well as it turns out, you do.

Back on December 13th I challenged the subscribers to my blog to Tell Me Your Favorite Image From 2012, and one lucky person was going to win an 8″ x 12,” signed print of their favorite. The rules were simple, post a link in the comments section to your favorite Jeff Sinon Photography image that appeared on the blog during 2012. Once the votes were tallied, one lucky winner would be chosen at random.

I have to admit, with 660 followers at last count, I was hoping for a bit more participation, however, I’m not complaining. That there were only 9 votes cast by only 6 people* made less work for me, and the odds of winning went up considerably for those who did take part. That’s a win-win in my book :-)

So here they are, the 9 images chosen as favorites from the images shared during 2012.

 

And The Winner Is…

Jessica from This One Time At Band Camp…, and the image she chose as her favorite,

Wavy Green

Jessica, contact me with your mailing address at your earliest convenience, and an 8″ x 12″ print of “Wavy Green” will be on it’s way!

 

*For anyone wondering, though a few people voted for more than one image, their names were only placed in the drawing once. Based on the number of individual voters, the odds of winning were 1 in 6.

Thank you all so much, I look forward to another year of making photographs for you all to enjoy!

Tell Me Your Favorite Image From 2012…

…And You Could Win It!

It’s almost that time of year again, time to recap 2012 with my 12, give or take, favorite images made over the past year. This year I plan to do something a little different as well. Not only am I going to be sharing my “Top 12 Of 2012,”  but with your help I would also like to share the top 12 “Fan Favorite” Jeff Sinon Photography images.

Now here is where the “And You Could Win It” part comes in. As incentive to get you to take part, one lucky person, drawn at random from those who cast a vote, starting today, 12/13/12 and ending 1/5/13,  will receive a signed 8″x12″ print of their favorite image, FREE.

Since not all the images I’ve made this year end up on my blog, you are not restricted to only photos I’ve shared here. You may also visit the Jeff Sinon Photography Fan Page, where my most recent photos are often shared first (“Liking” my page, though appreciated, is not required to view photos), or my website, www.jeffsinon.com.

6) The winner will have 30 days to contact me with shipping information. Which will only be used to mail their print and then promptly discarded. You’ll never have to worry about unsolicited mail from Jeff Sinon Photography.
