One promise that I made to myself moving into 2018 is that I am going to have more ‘fun’ with my blog this year. Not that I didn’t in 2017 – I am LOVING what Alternatively Speaking has become, and how could I not with all of my amazing followers, but I want to take it to the next level. So, with that in mind, I have decided to start 2018 with a fun little contest.
The prize is a surprise, but I will say that it’s a minimum $50 value. I say minimum because that’s where we are sitting at right now, but that’s not to say it won’t grow between now and time to send it out! I’m that kind of person… I just love the giving aspect of stuff like this! The prize will be revealed when the winner is named, but for now, I will say that it is currently a box of some of my personal favourite items. If you’ve been following me on here, you’ve likely seen some if not all of the items mentioned at one time or another.
That being said, if you are reading this and represent a brand that would like to get involved send me a message! All items included will be mentioned in the summer blog post, and I will do additional social media shout-outs for each item that I am sent for the contest.
Rather than just doing a ‘like my page and you’ve entered’ type giveaway I wanted to change it up a little. To enter the 2018 Photo Scavenger Hunt, you must do the following:
- Follow at least one of the following social media platforms (you will receive one bonus entry if you follow on ALL accounts listed): Twitter | Facebook | Instagram | Pinterest
- Subscribe to my mailing list
- Take one photograph to meet each of the listed criteria in the scavenger hunt list below.
- Create a blog post linking back to this post, revealing all of your photographs.
Now you may be wondering, outside of just having fun, why should you participate? The way that I am structuring the contest is designed to help not only bring exposure to my own blog but also to help each participant! Throughout the contest, as the entries are coming in, I will feature some of the photos on my social media accounts, always giving full credit and directing people back to the photographer responsible for the picture. Finally, at the conclusion of the contest, I will be creating 2 separate blog posts. One will highlight the winner, showcasing their awesome photography and revealing their prize. The other will be a summary of the contest as a whole and will have a mini-feature for every single participant.
That’s right – it’s a WIN/WIN for all involved!
So, grab your camera and get out there. The contest officially starts today with this post being published, and entries will close at midnight EST on March 31st. You have 3 months, and the clock is officially ticking! I can’t wait to see the incredible creativity and talent that I know is out there! Remember – the more creative, the better!
