Holiday Photo Contest

We've been working on some fresh new designs for the holidays and need some fabulous photos to really make them pop.  Sugarhouse Ink is inviting our fans to submit their favorite photos to be featured in our new designs in our shop.  If you're a great photographer or just think you have the cutest kids around, now is the time to show them off!

We're hoping to select a variety of winners - all of whom will receive a free customized photo card design plus a generous discount code to share with friends and family.  A "fan favorite" will be chosen who will receive a free design and discount code as well as 25 free Premium Prints (over $80 value). An "editor's choice" grand prize winner will also be chosen who will additionally receive 50 free Premium Prints (over $100 value).

Submit photos of:
-Children (newborn on up)

Photos can be:
-posed or unposed
-professionally taken or informal snapshots
-black and white or color

Please don't submit:
-Photos with red eye
-Photos with harsh shadows

How it works
1. Submit as many photos as you like.  We're looking for photos that will make the designs shine!  Please don't submit anything that you wouldn't consider sending out in a photo card of your own.  These should be only the best photos you've got!
2. The submission deadline is midnight (MDT) September 2, 2011.
3. Please encourage friends and family to submit photos as well!
4. Encourage friends and family to "like" your submissions on facebook and make comments on them as well.  The number of likes and comments will be taken into consideration for the "fan favorite" winner.
