While the end is in sight for our “Drinks at the Beach” photo contest with Flip Flops and Palms, there’s still time to submit your entries and garner some votes for a chance to win one of the prizes from our great sponsors. One effective way to make up ground in the voting is to share your entry with your friends on Facebook. Remind them to vote once a day and before you know it, you could be scheduling a trip to the British Virgin Islands to enjoy your prize.
Having perused multiple times through the many images that have been submitted, I’ve decided to offer a sort of “consolation” prize. After the first, second, third and judges’ choice prizes have been awarded, I will choose five of my favorite images and feature them in their own article on this blog – five articles featuring five images and the stories behind them.
There’s absolutely no dollar value to the consolation prize but your friends might think it’s pretty cool which might get you a free drink or two at your favorite local watering hole. Plus, if you’re a professional photographer, it’s free exposure and if you’re anything like me, you’ll jump at anything free.
So continue getting those submissions in to our “Drinks at the Beach” photo contest. You might not win anything of value but hey, if you find yourself at a beach bar in the future and whip your feature article out, I’ll bet someone will be impressed.
