I recently entered a photo contest where I could possibly win a safari trip to Zambia. The contest is being held on Safarious.com, and is broken down into 6 Heats over 6 months. The Top 30 pictures are picked out be the judges to be voted on. The 2 best photos, as voted by the public and one chosen by the judges, go through to the final in January. So that will be 18 finalists.
The majority of my ‘Good’ photos are best suited for Heat 2, but I thought I may increase my chances of getting a place on the final by submitting photos to as many of the Heats as possible. So I submitted just one to the 1st Heat, and to my surprise my photo, “The Impossible” was picked to be in the Top 30 (out of approximately 900 entrants).
At first, my photo was doing quite well (with a lot of help from friends and family), with it managing 1st place quite early on in the voting. However, it has started to lag behind; with one photo going from 10 votes to 70 over night, and another with only 6 votes more than I. This means my photo is no longer in the top 2 for the automatic place in the final.
With your help, we can turn this around. So, can I have your help?
Just click on the photo, and it will take you to Safarious.com
Voting involves you signing in with your email on Safarious.com, you don’t have to verify your account. When logged on, just click on “Market Place” (located near the top right corner), then clicking on “contests” (located underneath “Market Place” and to the left). Then click on the “Place your vote” button under the Heat 1 photo. My photo is called “The Impossible”
Your help with this will be much appreciated, as this is a dream of mine that I have held since I was a very small child.
