Streetwalker Backpack Winner

streetwalker

Wow… I’m pretty surprised at how popular this past week’s Streetwalker giveaway was. Over this past week we received 510 entries, with 230 comments and 280 tweets. To put that into perspective, the most responses for a giveaway prior to this one was 191 (when we gave away two Photomatix licenses).

To pick a winner, I assign each entry with a number, and use random.org to randomly select one entry. Using this method, we found the winner of a Streetwalker backpack to be:

#144: Kerry (birchblazephotography.com)

I think it would be amazing to photograph the Country of Bhutan, it’s supposed to be one of the happiest in the world, and it’s very beautiful as well!

Congratulations Kerry! I hope you enjoy your new camera backpack.

Thanks to everyone who participated in this week’s giveaway. Be sure to check back again soon, as we have some pretty awesome stuff lined up to be given away…

I also really enjoyed reading all of your responses. Here are some of them:

Well, not so down to Earth speaking, in the broader sense of the word ‘world’, I’d really go and photograph the Universe, if one could only explore it. Think of all the nebulas, alien planets, and other unseen phenomena. Could result in quite some awesome photos.

On a more down to Earth tone, i’d make a one year (or more years, however long it takes), of all the world’s national parks. That could also result in quite some awesome photographs.

Cheers

It might sound strange for some, but I wish I could capture the life of the people of North Korea and show the world how life is over there.

My dream place to photograph would be the ocean floor of the Atlantic Ocean, want to get nite style shots of glowing fish

It’s time for another PetaPixel giveaway! This week I’m giving away a Streetwalker backpack by Think Tank Photo.

If you could photograph anywhere in the world, where would you go?

There are two ways to enter this giveaway. You can send us your answer both ways to double your chances:

  1. Leave a comment on this entry with your response
  2. Tweet your response, and include the following link to this post so we can find it: http://bit.ly/ppsw. Here’s an example tweet:

    My dream place to photograph would be Cambodia! http://bit.ly/ppsw

This giveaway will end in a week on Saturday August 15th, 2009. We’ll randomly select an entry and send the Streetwalker to the winner.

Good luck! I look forward to reading your responses!


Update on August 13th, 2009 at 11:42 PST: Don’t worry if your tweet entry doesn’t show up in the reactions list below the comments. I wrote a script that automatically collects every tweet submission neatly into a table, weeding out multiple tweets and such. Just make sure the URL we gave (http://bit.ly/ppsw) appears somewhere in the tweet. This is what we search for to collect the entries. If you included it, we got your entry.

206 tweet entries so far at the time of writing this update.
