Photo Comp on Facebook
« on: January 06, 2013, 05:40:09 PM »
A supplier I use is running a comp to promote their Facebook page.  The one with the most likes wins their picture on a large canvas. plus other things.  I seem to be the only entry at the moment so I am sure others would be welcomed.  Just upload your pictures directly onto their page.  Here is the link   http://www.facebook.com/pages/Wideformat-Solutions-Ltd/193286430716303

Not big on facebook myself but I have recently got my own page running after suggestions from friends and customers. I suppose it will be handy for posting wedding pictures for quick previews.

Anyway if any of you out there are on facebook a quick ' Like' on my page would be appreciated.    http://www.facebook.com/LancashirePhotography      :tup:

Never argue with a stupid person, they'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Hmmm, I have my doubts about the fairness of the competition as the voting is by "likes".......So it could come down to a "whose got the most friends" competition. There is an entry on there, which without sounding rude, isn't really that good.......yet it's has more likes than either Daves or Myself..... ???

I know what you mean Matthew so we had best get our friends involved. Which is what they want on their site anyway.

Yeah, plugged the site on my page. Ach I'm not too bothered about the outcome, just thought it funny how when there is basically money and a decent prize up for grabs, it comes down to a voting system that is open to abuse and unfairness. I havent got many mates on my page, so if you got a few going spare..... ;) :dance:

Will try and find these and "like" them. I never enter competitions based on facebook "likes" from friends. being a billy no mates I would lose but also would not get much satisfaction out of winning when it is basically a promotional tool used by the company to harvest friends of yours  for a relatively low value prize. I expect your shots to be amongst the best and will vote accordingly but don`t worry if you don`t win as it will not be based on your ability.
I was glad to see my £200 prize arrive from Nikon for their Facebook comp. They have started adding general images to the post here:

Just updated a load of snow shots to a current comp Nikon are running in their monthly newsletter from the last snowfall in Leeds. Some are better than this one but then again you never know what a judge is looking for.
