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.

    I’m a frequent visitor of the Photography section on the Disboards.  And someone had referenced an article that was posted here.  So I checked it out, and have been a fan of PetaPixel since.

     I’ve been reading this blog for a pretty long time and can’t remember exactly how I found it, but I want to say that Photojojo (my other favorite photo-related site after yours) linked me here. It was either them or Gizmodo but I will give credit to PJJ.

     It was from Twitter.. somehow. First the PP retweets were sporadic, then PetaPixel became more and more familiar, like a household name in the photographic world. I’ve followed the website ever since.

    From a co worker and it was so good i had to come back for more

    Found the site through one of the “rumors” sites I think and have been checking almost every day since.
