First, the prize. One winner will receive a portrait package of 5 sessions to be completed by September 1, 2012. The package will include digital proofs of all finished images, 20-30 finished images per session, the disc of all session images with a printing release AND a 16x24 framed print OR 16 side magazine style album at the end of the year!
Second, how do you win? You're going to earn points! You'll have until August 15th to earn points and get that much closer to winning A Year of Portraits! Just follow the steps below, and please don't cheat. I will be verifying the winner's points and keeping track for the following month. If the winner can't have all points and steps verified the person with the second highest amount of points will win.
The steps and their value...
- You must be logged into your Facebook account and go here. "Like" my page and leave a comment below saying you have done so (if you're already a fan just say so). You must leave your FB link in the comment so I can verify you. 10 points.
- Subscribe or follow this Blog and leave a comment. If you already do follow the Blog, you qualify as long as you leave a comment. 10 points.
- Update your Facebook status to say "Win a Year of Portraits with @Bossy Photographer. Follow me to http://bossyphotographer.blogspot.com !" You can do this once a day through August 15. Come back here and comment that you did so with your FB link for verification. 2 points per update (maximum of 1 per day).
- Tell your friends about me! For every new "Like" I get, thanks to you, you earn points. Tell them to say "Your Name sent me and I'm a new fan!" They will only be counted at the end of the contest for accurate points. If they are not still a fan August 15 they will not be counted. I will be keeping a list of who referred who going. 5 points per new fan.
- If someone you referred to me books a session (and says they're booking thank to you) you receive 15 points.
- If you book a new session between now and August 15, you will receive 1 point per dollar paid. Example, if you book a half hour for 1 during the Baby Weekend, you'll receive 55 points, if you book an hour long family session you'll receive 150 points.
Finally, the fine print. Each session will be good for up to 5 people, additional people per session are $25 per person. Sessions are up to an hour, any additional time will be charged at the regular over time rate of $50.00 an hour due before images are completed. Sessions can not be scheduled during a Baby Weekend or any other marathon weekend. Package is valued at $1,000.00 and is non-transferrable or redeemable for any other product or cash. If you do not call or email to reschedule a session, and do not show for a scheduled session than a rebooking fee will be charged of $50.00 per session, I reserve the right to cancel remaining package if this is a common occurrence. Travel is not included. You must live within 90 miles of zip code 14201.
Good Luck everyone! Context ends at 11:59 p.m. on August15.
