If you’re registered at TheUkuleleSite.com then you should know about our monthly giveaways and contests. Our winners have been randomly selected a few times. Then we did the ukulele trivia, last month we did a video contest, and this month was a photo contest. A Kamaka was at stake, so it got serious.
Winning Photo-“Ukes make me Happy, Happy, Happy”
In the last week, Janice Denton of Nashville Tennessee pretty much creamed the competition, with over double the votes of any other competitor. I monitored all the entries for double-voting within 24 hours. She won fair and square. Janice clearly worked it. Worked it and networked it and kept going at it every day. She’s such a nice person that many of her friends networked as well to help her out. We’ll be sending Janice a great little Kamaka, and you can bet that she’s gonna love it. A few days ago it was her birthday and she posted this video on her facebook page. She seems like a fun lady. I’m really glad for her.
This contest was decided by votes. The problem with the popular vote is; if you’re not “popular”, you aint gonna win. Doesn’t matter how great your entry is. You have to be the type of person that gets people to do these things for you. Many of us could never win a contest like this, so we decided to pick 10 great images showing skill and creative expression. We award these contestants $100 to their customer account. There were many other’s we wanted to include. Big mahalo to all who participated.
So what do you think could have made this contest better? Share your thoughts and ideas below.
