Giveaway to Celebrate 10,000 Fans

Update: This giveaway is now over. The winner was randomly selected and announced below.

We just passed the 10,000 fan (well, technically they’re called “likes” now) mark on our Facebook page, and to celebrate, we’re going to do a pretty exciting giveaway. One lucky winner will receive a ThinkTankPhoto Retrospective 30 camera bag worth $179, a ThinkTankPhoto Pixel Pocket Rocket for storing CF cards worth $16.50, and three 24”x36” UPrinting canvas prints worth $366 (they cost $122 each). The combined value of the prizes is about $560.

To enter this giveaway, all you need to do is:
