I Clicked it Up a Notch Photography Contest-February 2012

Remember that post where I talked about befriending your competition? This is another photographer friend, Jana of Jana White Photography, who we exchanged services. She took some fantastic family shots for me when my parents were in town. I was finally able to repay the favor a few weeks ago. They are such a beautiful couple and a joy to photograph!!

In order to be eligible to win, please read the list below.

  • -Only one photo in the entry post.
  • -Our button (not just a link) must be in the post.
  • -The photo needs to have been taken this month.
  • -Summit your permalink, not your main blog address. You can use a flickr account as well (Just add the button in the comment section)

Click It Up A Notch

That’s it! It’s that simple! So go through all your photos you have taken in February and submit your favorite/best one. Don’t forget to leave comments on the other entries because that is half the fun!! I recommend commenting on the 5 people in front of you. That way everyone gets at least 5 comments.

Also, submit your photo early since those seem to be the ones who receive the most comments! Unfortunately, I won’t be able to comment on everyone’s photo who submits! I will do my best but I can’t make any promises :O)

We will pick our top 5 favorite and post them on Tuesday morning (Japan Time/Monday evening EST) for you to vote for the winner. The voting will be open until (Thursday night Japan Time/Thursday morning EST) and the winner will be announced Friday (March 9th).
