September Greeblepix Contest

Here we go again! The Inaugural Greeblepix Contest was awesome, and I am sure this month will be too. I look forward to seeing everyone’s entries!

Here’s the deal:

PHASE ONE (Monday thru Tuesday night):

1. Select a photo you are loving right now. Whatever it is, whenever it was shot, just a photo you are totally loving on. This contest is open to all levels of photographers. As long as YOU TOOK IT, we wanna see it! Also, be sure that you have the clearance with any people in your photo to post them in this public fashion.

2. Post your pic on your blog, or on Flickr.

3. Use this badge in your post, if you like. (Right click and pull down to “Save Image As” to grab the badge).

4. Add the URL of your photo to the Mr. Linky dealiebob below to enter the contest.

5. The deadline for entries is 10pm Mountain time, Tuesday September 17th, 2008.

PHASE TWO (Wednesday Morning – Thursday Night):

6. I will select 5 finalists to go into a group voter widget thing on this here blog. Check back on Wednesday to see if you made it!

7. Everyone votes for the final winner! Voting ends Thursday at midnight (if I can figure out military time).

PHASE THREE (Friday Morning):

8. I will reveal the Greeblepix Winner of the Month!

9. There will be a monthly “winner” badge on the Friday post for the winner to grab. If I actually remember to make one (Sorry, Clark Kent!), that is. I would love to have actual prizes, but let’s face it, until some awesome camera people come knocking (cough cough Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus), the badge will have to do.

So there it is.

Wanna play?!?! Pssst! Spread the word, too!

09.08 Greeblemix Winners

OK, there were really random numbers this time! Bryan picked: 8, 14, 47. Which equals:

8. Lisa Clusterfook (Pssst! It’s Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, yo’s!)
14. Reese / Fashionista Plus / Reese Raves & Rants
47. Jill Glossy Veneer

Thanks so much to everyone who participated, and gave such humorous comments. I have to admit my faves were the Little Known Facts, but I *promise * I did NOT sway Bryan to pick Reese’s number. PROMISE.

Winners, please email your snail mail addresses to aimee at greeblemonkey dot com!

Now, as you may know, every month, the mix ends up being a total potpourri. New music (some found from old friends, some found from new friends, most of it found from the associated music tools in iTunes, heh!). Old music (some rediscovered through Rockband and our combined awesomeness on guitar + vocals, or some that just makes me feel good, or some old friends with new albums, yay!). Mainly whatever hits me at the end of the month and sounds good together. To me, at least.

I hope you guys enjoy it too.

August Greeblepix Winner!

Whew, that was really, really really close. Like Michael Phelps / Milorad Cavic close.

But the winner of the inaugural Greeblepix Photo Contest is:


Here is how the voting went down:

So, big congrats also to MOOSH IN INDY for a very close second place and to ALL the finalists for being kick ass!

Seriously. Big awesome to everyone who participated.

And guess what! We have a “sponsor” of sorts. My good friend and co-worker James, aka Jagged Pen took pity on me and agreed to donate one his lovely Retro 41 Tornado Fountain Pens as a prize!

So, Mr. Clark Kent, give me your address and I will send you a fancy schmancy pen! Doesn’t make sense for a photo contest, but what in life does???

See you all next month!

August Greeblepix Finalists!

Um, really. You guys are so so so so so (SO) awesome. When I hatched this Greeblepix Photo Contest plan, I figured we would throw a few photos around and have some fun. And we are still doing that, but there are so so so so so (SO) many awesome photos in the running, selecting the 5 finalists was REALLY hard.

Thank you ALL for such wonderful entries. I enjoyed every single photo.

So, here they are, in no particular order other than they look nice together this way….
