You know someone. You know someone who's experienced a tragedy, is struggling to stay afloat, is raising kids while holding down more than one job, or is volunteering selflessly despite extenuating personal circumstances. You know someone who can't afford custom photography, but who would cherish it this holiday season. You know someone who deserves a year-round reminder of their family's spirit, love, and beauty.
You know someone. I guarantee it.
I want to know who they are, and I want to give them the chance to experience complimentary custom photography -- $1,000 worth, to be exact. The package will include an album, a slideshow to watch over and over and a CD of the images to print as they'd like - it's in your power to give them the artwork they deserve this holiday season.
Oh, and the best part? The person who nominates the winner receives a $250 print credit. What better reason to show some love could there possibly be?
* You cannot nominate yourself, and the person nominated must sincerely be incapable of purchasing my services. (Being unable to make mortgage payments for a two-million-dollar-vacation-home in Paris does not qualify as sincere financial need.)
*The nominee must reside in central Iowa. Tell me who you know, what they’re experiencing, and why they deserve my artwork. Please include your email and or phone with your nomination as well as the best way to get in contact with your nominee.
* You must e-mail me the full story : firstname.lastname@example.org.
* All nominations must be received by midnight, December 31st, and the gift recipient will be announced on the blog the week after New Years.-- get nominating! I can't wait to read all of your entries!
Open your heart to someone this holiday season -- and thanks for giving me the opportunity to open mine.
A group of photographers from all over the United States (led by Kristen Kalp of Essential Imagery), have been challenged to offer an amazing gift. I COULD NOT pass up on this wonderful opportunity to give what I can.
If you are not in Iowa but would like to nominate someone there are other photographers participating in this event. To see a map of other states with photographers participating in this giving event, please visit http://www.givingisawesome.com/
