October Greeblepix Contest

Yes, time flies! And it’s already GREEBLEPIX PHOTO CONTEST WEEK again! But as I mentioned last month, we have some changes around here. As in, a wonderful sponsor, which equates to a WONDERFUL PRIZE, for the winner of this month’s Greeblepix contest.

Are you ready? Really? Cause the prize is so awesome I can barely stand it.

The Greeblepix winner will receive a $250 rental from Pro Photo Rental.


That’s a nice hunk of camera rental!

So… that kick ass lens you have been dying to try out with your Canon, Nikon or Olympus DSLR? Go for it! And Pro Photo Rental also rents full DSLR cameras so you could try a really great system that you have been drooling over! (Although, pssst! The Pro Photo Rental folks have warned me their bodies rent quick, so you would need to get on the calendar for a full kit.)

But who cares! Like I said, $250 worth of camera rental is A LOT! And they offer free 3-day shipping each way. So it’s like Netflix for camera equipment.

But, with the good, comes the bad – as in RULES.


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. Photo can be taken specifically for the contest, or in the past. Just one of your photographs that you are particularly loving right now!
6. United States photographers only. (I know! We are sorry! But shipping is outrageous these days!)
7. No anonymous entries.
8. Photos must be submitted below by 10pm Mountain time, Tuesday October 21st, 2008 to be considered.

So, ready to join in? Here’s how it goes…

PHASE ONE (Monday thru Tuesday night):

1. Select your entry photo.

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 Mr. Linky below to enter the contest.

5. The deadline for entries is 10pm Mountain time, Tuesday October 21st, 2008.

PHASE TWO (Wednesday Morning – Thursday Night):

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

7. *Everyone* votes for the final winner! Voting ends Thursday, October 23rd at midnight.

PHASE THREE (Friday Morning):

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

9. The winner will receive the prize from Pro Photo Rental via email once I officially give the word.

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

UPDATE: Heather at Flickr must have been channeling this contest because she used this photo of mine in her blog post about leaves today. I am truly honored. Thank you, Heather!

    US ONLY? *le’sigh* I’ll catch you next month, then. How about we make the prize DRINKS WITH AIMEE? You’ve been wanting to come back to Vancouver anyway, right? 🙂

  2. Deeleea

    Le Sigh.

    US only counts me out too. That’s too bad.. had some GREAT stuff this month!!

  3. Aimee Greeblemonkey

    Sorry ladies. We knew the US only was confining. :((( And Jared is in for a while, so the prize and rules will be in place for a bit, not just this month. SORRY CANADIANS!

  4. Aimee Greeblemonkey

    And Naomi, thanks for stopping by! You can use an older photo too, not just one specifically taken for this contest. I updated the rules to reflect that. I forgot some people would be coming to this contest for the 1st time!

  5. Imelda

    What a great contest/prize idea Aimee! I would so love to rent a fast telephoto lens to play around with.
