January Greeblepix Contest!

Happy Martin Luther King Day! It also happens to be the start of Greeblepix week!

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

I know! So cool! Great equipment from Canon, Nikon, Olympus with free three day shipping (except for a Canadian winner, whose shipping is wrapped into the $250 prize).

I was thinking given the significance of today, and the fact that we have an historic inauguration tomorrow – we’d have a LOOSE theme of “Inspired” this month. But you know I like to keep it open, so you don’t HAVE to follow that theme. Just a photo you took, no matter when you took it, that you want to share with us.




1. All levels of photographers are welcome. Encouraged, even. Everyone, everyone, everyone is welcome.
2. Except! No family members of Greeblemonkey are eligible.
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.
7. United States and Canadian photographers only.
8. No anonymous entries. Please make sure I can contact you via email!
9. Photos must be submitted below by 10pm Mountain time, Tuesday January 20th, 2009 to be considered.

    I’ve been waiting for days for this months contest. And the photo I selected really goes with the theme. It shows how much of a wonderful goof my dad is – he stuck his hand in front of my camera just to be silly, and its such a shot of his silly personality. As well as his stubby finger which he cut of like 50 years ago. You have no idea how excited I was to see I had taken a picture of Dad’s stubby finger. And how much of an influence he had on who I am today, and how thankful I am for that influence, and how he inspires me to work harder, try harder, be a better person everyday.
    ah, I’m getting all misty just thinking about him.

    Anyway, thanks for your contest for another month.

  2. Laura

    Great contest Greeble!
    I am loving your blog and this concept.
    My photo was taken a few days ago as I wandered out for some photo’s near my home. I was looking for some inspiration; which is hard to come by in this cold brown winter. No snow Here so far lol.
    So I stopped along the road by the waters edge in my car and wandered out camera in hand. The sun was shining over the tops of the reeds so I snapped the photo.
    I love putting quotes or music to my photo’s. Helps me to set a mood in my mind anyway. We lost an incredible artist Andrew Wyeth this past week. He has brought us his art for many years and will be missed. But he Will live on thru his beautiful artwook. I loved his quote…and hope you can enjoy the sentiment behind it.

    i love to find inspiration in little everyday things that others my pass by on a daily basis. i love the simple things in live and i am inspired daily to capture them and realize what is really important.
    i am very excited to see what other post for this contest….this can evoke some really wonderful images.
    thanks for doing this!

    I’m in! What a great idea for a theme! I love checking out all the photos entered!

  20. cwPhotography

    My photograph is inspiring to me because it’s a reminder that the simple things are funny. It’s also a reminder to stay creative.

    I’m looking forward to seeing who wins this month!

  21. Sarah Long

    The 15th entry is mine. Ü This photo makes me think that it would make Martin Luther King Jr. smile perhaps. Cheers.

    Sarah Long

  22. Christina

    Thanks for another month of fun!

  23. Andie

    First timer here, thanks for offering these fun contests!

  24. meg manion silliker

    ok my shot is my little one holding a card with a very poignant quote about angels. when you ask annie who her angel is she will say her nana, and when you ask her where her nana is she will say in heaven. my mom passed away during my pregnancy. not a day goes by that we don’t think or talk about her. annie is named after her – my annie gals are my inspiration on a daily basis. and i know how truly lucky i am.

  25. monstergirlee

    Lots of great photos so far Aimee – I look forward to seeing the rest.

  33. Jenna

    I hope you can all see the joy in my daughter’s eyes, and find inspiration in it. I enjoyed looking at everyone’s photos–that in itself inspires me! Good luck to all!

    My husband inspires me all the time as he’s the focus of my photo but then the reflection of me in his sunglasses shows I am his inspiration as well.
