Photo Caption Contest: Win Fabulous Prizes

WOW!’s 1st Ever Photo Caption Contest

WOW! is happy to announce our first ever photo caption contest. A few weeks ago, we were in the middle of another Facebook contest when luckily one of our Premium Green members alerted us that Facebook didn’t allow these type of contests any more. So, we put our heads together, and we decided to do this fun contest on The Muffin instead—so let’s get to it!

1. Think of a photo caption for the photo on this blog post.

2. Write your photo caption in the comment section of this post.

3. Please include your name, e-mail address, and where you heard about the contest. (a friend, another blog post, blog subscriber, Twitter, Facebook, etc.)

4. You may only enter the contest two times with two separate comments.

5. One photo caption per each comment, please.

6. Comments should be for a family audience. WOW! team members reserve the right to remove any comments from the site and disqualify the writer from the contest.

7. The photo caption contest goes until Friday, February 26 at 11:59 p.m. CST.

8. Two prizes will be awarded for this contest:

a. THE BEST CAPTION: Members of the WOW! team will choose the best caption—the best could be clever, witty, or funny. This writer will win a WOW! prize pack, which includes a year-long subscription to Premium Green ($48 value), a WOW! t-shirt, a WOW! sweatshirt, a book, and a WOW! tote bag.
b. PARTICIPATION PRIZE*: We will also be awarding one participation prize. This prize will be given to a writer who wrote a caption that we randomly choose from all the comments. This writer will be awarded a WOW! tote bag, a WOW! t-shirt, a WOW! sweatshirt, and a book.

(*Facebook fans who were already notified of being entered into the Facebook #3 contest before it was canceled will be automatically entered into the participation prize contest.)

9. Winners will be notified by e-mail and announced on The Muffin on Wednesday, March 3.

Okay, we can't wait to see these captions! Make us smile, makes us laugh, make us wish we could be so clever. . .

WOW! Facebook Fan Contest #2: Photos!

WOW! is having another Facebook Fan Contest! You could win a really cute tee, tote, and hoodie, as well as a subscription to Premium-Green Writers Markets. If you are not a fan yet and you are on Facebook, consider becoming a fan today. Visit our Facebook Fan Page.

Official Rules: WOW! Facebook Fan Contest #2: Photos

1. Post a photo of your writing spot, writing buddies, writing workshops, writing conferences, yourself writing, etc. to the WOW! Facebook Fan Page for one entry. Multiple photos will give you multiple entries with a limit of 5 entries (you can post as many photos as you want!).

2. If you have already posted photos, you are already entered into the contest! So, anyone who has posted a photo is entered. (Margo has been keeping track!)

3. How to post a photo. There are two ways: send your photos to margo[at]wow-womenonwriting[dot]com as a jpg attachment with captions as to what the photos are. Please put in the subject line: Facebook Photo Contest. Margo will upload your photos to the fan page. The second way is to do it yourself, right on WOW's Facebook wall. Simply, type in your photo's caption in the box on the wall that says, "What's on your mind?" Then click the icon for photos underneath this box. You will have three choices for how to post a photo to the wall. Click on the one that pertains to you and follow the directions. You are now entered!

4. For an extra entry into the contest (so you could have a total of 6 entries--5 photos and 1 friend invite), invite some of your Facebook friends to be fans of WOW! You can do this by clicking on the link on the left-hand corner of the wall that says, "Suggest to friends." Then, on the wall of WOW's fan page, please leave a comment, such as: "I just entered WOW's 2nd ever Facebook Fan page contest. I invited 10 friends to become fans of WOW!" (That's one more entry!)

5. You cannot enter the contest without posting a photo. So, if you post one photo and invite a friend to join WOW! on Facebook, that is worth two entries. You cannot ONLY invite friends to enter this month's contest. If you have any questions please e-mail Margo (margo[at]wow-womenonwriting[dot]com) or leave a question on the wall.

6. Your photos need to be posted on our wall or sent to Margo by Friday, December 18, 2009 8:00 p.m. CST. Winners will be announced on Sunday, December 20, 2009 on the fan page and with a personal Facebook message.

7. Through a random drawing from the fans who posted photos, one winner will be picked. The prizes are a WOW! Women On Writing prize pack, including a WOW! t-shirt, tote bag, hoodie, and a year-long subscription to Premium-Green Writer's Markets.

Thanks in advance for participating, and stay tuned for our next fan contest in the New Year!
