I Clicked it Up a Notch Photography Contest-July 2012

Did you click it up a notch this month? I know you did!! This month has been a whirl wind for us as we moved our family from Japan back to the States and are still in transition as we speak. Before we left Japan we were able to spend our last 4th of July with our dear friends that have become family. I will never forget them!

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 this month 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! I won’t be able to comment on everyone’s photos this month. I’m attending the BlogHer conference to learn how to make this blog even better! I will as always look at each and every entry.

We will pick our top 5 favorite and then you will vote for the winner.

    Love your firework shot! Praying for you as your readjust to living in the states. I’ve never moved out of the country, but we have moved cross country and it was very bittersweet leaving all those precious friends behind when we moved back near family.

    Sounds like it was a fabulous way to say goodbye. Great fireworks!

    Hey Courtney, I just wanted to make sure I entered the contest right…I’m new (read: slightly clueless) to all this – did I add the button to my photo? Did the photo link correctly? I’m going to take a couple deep breaths over here while I wait for your response ;) Thanks!!

      Not a silly question! It is actually closed but when it is open there is a blue box at the bottom that says “add your link here”. Keep a look out for it at the end of August :)
