January Greeblepix Contest! + Haiti Relief

Yay, friends! It’s Greeblepix Photo Contest time again.

And to celebrate Martin Luther King Day, as well as feeling like I need to do something more for Haiti – for every entry this month*, I will personally donate $1.00 to UNICEF in support of Haiti relief efforts. I am hoping we have a record number of entries, OK?

The theme this month will be “inspirational.” Photos that either inspire you to be better, work harder, or look deeper inside. As you know, I like themes to be pretty broad, so feel free to take the theme loosely, but given what has been happening this week in Haiti – I know we can all reflect on how lucky we all are today. And how we can do better at helping others.

Google has pulled together a great page with various ways to donate if you are able to.


As always, the Greeblepix winner will receive a $250 camera equipment rental from Pro Photo Rental!

1. All levels of photographers are welcome. Encouraged, even. Everyone, everyone, everyone is welcome.
2. Except family members or co-workers of Greeblemonkey.
3. You must be the photographer of the photo you submit and have clearance for any people in the photos.
4. One photo/entry per person per month.
5. Winner from last month, please take a month off.
6. Photo can be taken specifically for the contest, or in the past. Does *NOT* need to be a newly posted photo.
7. United States photographers only.
8. No anonymous entries.
9. Photos must be submitted below by 10pm Mountain time, Tuesday January 19, 2010 to be considered.

PHASE ONE (Monday thru Tuesday night):

– Select your entry photo.
– Post your pic on your blog, or on Flickr.

– The deadline for entries is 10pm Mountain time, Tuesday January 19, 2010.


PHASE TWO (Wednesday Morning – Thursday Night):

– I will select 10 finalists to go into a Polldaddy voter widget on this blog. Check back on Wednesday to see if you made it!
– *Everyone* votes for the final winner! Voting ends Thursday, January 21, 2010 at midnight Mountain time.


PHASE THREE (Friday Morning):
– I will reveal the Greeblepix Winner of the Month!
– The winner will receive the prize directly from Pro Photo Rental via email once I officially give the word.


As always, THANKS! I can’t wait to see your photos.

    if we get to vote my vote goes to jennythebloggess. Her photo touches a tender spot in my heart. My little sis is curently going through chemo for breast cancer. She is also scheduled to get a mastectomy after chemo. ow that she is bald we were discussing the idea of getting tattoos on her head and chest as a means of taking creative control of her challenging situation. Jenny’s photo is what I imagined it could look like.


  36. Jenny, the Bloggess

    I don’t need a camera. I just wanted to cost you a dollar.

  37. Brandie

    What a great way to combine giving back with your contest!! I entered (even though in the past I’ve never thought my pics were good enough for any contest!) =)

  38. Aimee Greeblemonkey

    You guys are SO rockin’ it.

  39. Randall Douglas

    I just found this contest/blog and appreciate your donating money to Hati relief.

  40. Heather

    Aimee, this is awesome. So many great entries and an excellent cause. a great first month for me to start out. Thanks for reminding me of it.

  41. Burgh Baby

    I really bent (OK, probably broke) the rules, but I wanted to make you pitch in another buck.

  42. Heather @36 balloons

    Well I’ve always shied away from entering for some reason, but for #haiti of course! 🙂

  43. Pgoodness

    Ok, just because you’re donating, not because I think it’s a super awesome shot (maybe by next month….) =)

  44. Jessica Drossin

    What a wonderful thing to do. Thank you.

  45. Sew Fab Martha

    wonderful contest, generous offer!

  46. anniemcq

    I’ve been holding off entering because I can never figure out what photo would be “best” to enter. But now? I still can’t figure it out, but I’m entering anyway. Great cause, great contest, great company! Thanks, Aimee!

  47. Nat

    Voila! A photo for Haiti… I thought children should be appropriate. 🙂

  48. jenni

    It’s only 9:56 according to my computer, so I hope I squeaked in on time! Not sure how far off we are from Mountain time…I’m in Oklahoma.

    anyway, thank you so much for your generous donation to Haitian relief!

  49. Extrayay

    I cheated too, mine is a digital painting, but I just wanted to support your efforts and get you to at least 100!

    Those who bound to to the standard faiths allege that the expert of their reliance rests on revelation, and that revelation is confirmed in the pages of books and accounts of miracles and wonders whose complexion is supernatural. But those of us who force long discarded the credence in the magical unruffled are in the self-possession of revelations which are the cellar of faith. We too arrange our revealed religion. We from looked upon the face of men and women that can be to us the symbols of that which is holy. We enjoy heard words of divine understanding and truth vocal in the gentle voice. In of the domain there experience come to us these sagacity which, when accepted, allow to us revelations, not of unexplainable belief, but of a real and fated fidelity in the clerical powers that animated and live in the center of [a themselves’s] being.
