Click Here to See Winners as They are Announced

If you live in the northern hemisphere you probably have the winter blahs right about now. Snow, cold, short days, gray skies. Well – cheer up! Here's an opportunity to reignite your enthusiasm for photography along a chance to win one of ten prizes of Adobe Lightroom 3 in our new contest. Oh yes – and you'll be supporting this site.


Why The Contest?

The reason is simple. To entice you to purchase one of our products – either a download tutorial such as The Luminous Landscape Guide to Camera Raw, From Camera to Print, our Guide to Asset Management, our Adobe Lightroom Tutorial, or one of our many other download videos and Video Journals. Every one of our products contains useful photography lessons and photography tips. The video tutorials are in-depth photography classes with instruction by experts.


The Prizes

There will be a total of ten prizes awarded. One roughly every week until May 1. Each is a full retail boxed copy of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 kindly provided by our friends at Adobe. Prizes will be made available to winners once Adobe ships Lightroom 3.

Prize winners will also receive a free copy of our updated Lightroom 3 video tutorial once it too becomes available. So, if you want to buy our current Adobe Lightroom Tutorial you'll be all set to learn Lightroom 3. And, everyone that buys our current Adobe Lightroom Tutorial during this contest promotion period will be entitled to a discount on our newest Lightroom 3 tutorial when it becomes available, as will previous purchasers.


The Fine Print

There's always fine print, right? There isn't much, but here it is.

This contest is open to anyone in the world, except where prohibited by law. The prizes must be accepted as awarded. There is no cash value. Shipping is included to anywhere in the world, but any local taxes or import duties (outside of the U.S.) are the responsibility of the winner.

Each and every separate purchases made from Our Online Store between 1 January, 2010 and April 30, 2010 will be eligible to win one of the ten prizes. Only one prize will be awarded per individual.

And finally, to satisfy the law in some countries – no purchase is necessary. You will be entered into the competition by simply registering your name in our store. But, if you do this, while within the letter of the law you are of course defeating the purpose of the whole exercise. You must decide if that's really what you want to do.
