Default Holiday Photo Book Giveaway Contest With Inkubook

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://inkubook.com/default.aspx' target='_blank'>http://inkubook.com/default.aspx</a><br /><br /></div><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1288909119.usr1.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>If you recall my <a href="http://www.digitalhomethoughts.com/news/show/97676/the-great-photo-book-round-up-review-who-makes-the-best-photo-books.html" target="_blank">photo book round-up review</a>, Inkubook <a href="http://www.digitalhomethoughts.com/news/show/97676/4/1/15" target="_blank">fared quite well</a> - I liked their Web-based book building system, and their paper, print, and cover quality were all solid. What with summer holidays now over - and the winter holidays fast approaching - Inkubook and I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to give away a few free photo books! We have five (5) <a href="http://inkubook.com/PhotoBook/LandscapePhotoBook.aspx" target="_blank">8.5" x 11" classic landscape photo books</a> to give away, 20 pages each, with shipping included. That's a $29.95 USD value (plus the shipping), and if you want to add more than 20 pages to your book, you'll simply get a $29.95 credit and free shipping subtracted from your total. Nice!</p><p>How can you enter? All you have to do is post a message telling me what you'd put in your photo book - a recent summer vacation? A new addition to the family? Celebration of a special moment in life? Tell me what you'll make, and post <strong>one</strong> of the pictures that you'll be putting in the photo book. It can be anything - keep it clean - and it's easiest to just post a link in your post so you don't have to mess around with HTML. We don't host images inside our forum, so you can use any one of the <a href="http://www.google.ca/search?sourceid=chrome&amp;ie=UTF-8&amp;q=free+image+hosting" target="_blank">many free image hosting services out there</a>&nbsp;to upload your image then post a link to it in your message.</p><p>The five winners will be chosen randomly when I shut down the contest on November the 12th at 12pm GMT -7. Winners will be contacted via forum private message, so make sure you have email notifications turned on. Have fun, and let's see those ideas!</p>

Again I wonder why I enter these things since I never win, but we DO create lots of photo books. Our next project is a book documenting the building of an "adapted aquatics" pool at our local YMCA. The building and pool were named for my baby sister who passed away in 2008 and payed for by our family and friends, so we need a nice photo book to document the whole process.

Was gonna do AdoramaPix, but this will do just as well, I think. We're gonna get two at least, so I'll probably use this and the 25% off code. So, not a bad deal if Hell freezes over and I actually win.

Oops, forgot the picture link:

Plan to work on a photo book for my mother-in-law... her family and ancestors. Also planning to try a slideshow or video with ProShow.

Default Would love to win

Hi,

Found your roundup of photo books last night. It was exactly what I was looking for, thanks!

We've made photo books of the kids for the grandparents a few times and my daughter really loves them, so we've been meaning to get one made for her. This would be a great chance!

We'd be sure to include this one taken in August 2008 at the water park in Stanley Park, Vancouver:

Default International project

I would create a book of pics from an international aid project that I have been working on in Pakistan. I would then use the book to show others what we are doing and to encourage their involvement or consideration in helping others living in abject poverty. (Well, it certainly is better than pie-in-the-sky "world peace").

Here's a pic of my house this fall, with the beautiful colors:

Default My favourite place

One of my favourite places in NW Ontario: Silver Islet.
The cottages are from silver-mining days (over 100 years ago)...and many of them are built right into the rock.

A Golden opportunity to make an album out of a New York trip I made a few years ago!
