Photo Competition and Amazon Giftcard

Howdy, Friends. I have to admit, this is not an original idea. There are lots of photo competitions out there, and let’s be honest, they can afford to give away much better prizes than a $15 gift card to Amazon. But, will it hurt you to win a $15 gift card to Amazon? No, indeed, it will not. And I’m quite interested in seeing what the people who grace this blog with their readership will churn out.

Here’s the deal. I’ll give you a theme, and you interpret it however you want. You send me your interpretation of that theme (your photo entry) via emailing me at And then your photo will appear on the blog. I’m still trying to decide whether I will just choose someone who wins or if I will leave it to a vote. I’ll let you know, either way. And whoever wins, they get a $15 Amazon gift card headed their way. This won’t be the only time that I do fun little competitions, so if you don’t win this time, try, try again!

Okay, so this time the theme is “Home.” Whatever that may mean to you. A house, a spouse, a child, heaven, whatever. It helps if you can also include a quick blurb about the photo and/or your interpretation, just to give the picture some personal background.

For Example:

The reason is simple. I don’t get homesick for a place. I get homesick for my husband. And I really think I could live about anywhere as long as he was there too.

That would be my entrance. I snapped this picture in Savannah right before we went into the church for my Nana’s funeral. I was so glad that he was there with me. So I might have included that information too, if I felt like it was pertinent.

I can’t wait to see what y’all come up with. But let me just say this: You don’t have to have an SLR or be a pro or hobby photographer to win this competition! You might be someone who just has a point and shoot and takes pictures only at special occasions. You never know what will capture votes. So don’t hold back because you’re embarrassed and think you can’t win.  You just might!

Deadline to email me a photo entry is Friday, August 20th! Winners will be announced the week after I stop taking entries.

  1. Ohhhhh… I like the theme of home, especially considering how many transitions I’ve had with getting married. What a great photo of Tom! Even more meaningful that it represents his support 🙂 I’m so sorry about your nana Meghan 🙁 Living away from mine is difficult because she raised me right alongside my mom and she’s 95 now. I still fear losing her!

    Anyway, I’ll give “home” a try!

    1. Thank you about the theme, Tom’s picture, and about my Nana. We all have to let go of those we love someday, and at least both of ours lived great, long lives! And we’ll see them again. =)

      Can’t wait to see your submission!

    1. It does not! As long as you can take credit for taking it, you can submit it. No matter when you took it.

      And photoshopping them is fine. (Someone else asked via email.)

  2. Ooh, this seems fun. Though I hate to say it, my poor camera has been left sitting on my desk for some time now :(. I’ll have to rummage through the tons of unedited pictures that I have stored on my computer, or try to make some time for a quick photoshoot, either way I’m so doing this! 😀
