Winners Of 1st Picture Methods Camera Contest

Thanks to everyone who participated in the first Picture Methods Camera giveaway.

We received 1800 qualified entries. All those names were assigned to a spread sheet, one name to a cell number. We used a random number generator to pick 25 names in each of the four prize categories, i.e., print credit, Platypod, Robus Tripod and Olympus Camera.

At the Festival of the Cranes, at Bosque del Apache, National Wildlife Refuge, Steve Ball, an Olympus employee, helped me pick the winners.

DON’T WORRY IF YOU DIDN’T WIN – you have another chance. We’re going to announce a new contest for 1st Quarter of 2020 and we’ll do that in December. If you have entered THIS contest, and didn’t win, your name will be forwarded on to the next contest. You don’t increase your odds of winning by submitting new entries.
