Letters of Intent

Foursons

Dear Local News Channel,

I recently submitted 4 of my photos to your "Kids Costume" Photo Contest. I would really appreciate knowing why you are calling it a "photo" contest when it is clearly a "see how many emails you can sign up for and then vote for your own picture" contest. Since registering for your site is a requirement before voting, I am pretty sure that only the people that submitted photos are going to take the time to vote!

I am not a professional photographer but I am not going to be happy if a photo that someone didn't even bother to remove the red-eye from beats one of my shots.

Sincerely,
Not Even Sure Why I Bothered

Yeah, I don't understand contests like that either. I do hope your kiddos win though!

Have a great weekend. A new follower!

that drives me crazy too

Rachel said...

Aww - that just ruins it for everybody.

I mean, I might as well go for American Idol, right? hee hee!

Have a great weekend!

I absolutely hate contests like that!!!

Brandi said...

Ugh. Seriously, HATE those. But, hey, you should have posted the link. I'm sure a few of us would have gone to the trouble of voting so you would be sure to win! Or, at least, I would have told you I voted. (hee, hee) ;)

Amy said...

That would totally boil my blood too! Some things end up being WAY more of a headache than they are worth! I sure hope you WIN!!!!

Emmy said...

Ugh, yes that is why I usually don't bother with those things.

SarahMerritt said...

They were doing one like that here recently and I decided not to do it because I really dont have the time to vote every day for her to win ugh! LOVE the new look btw!

Hope you get picked! Your little ones are adorable and so your photos of them would be natural winners :o)

Blessings & Aloha!
After returning from our visit with family, it was straight to work, but I had yesterday and today off from work, so I hope to get caught up on some blog reading. I did draw names and I just wanted to let you know-in appreciation to those that left comments but were not drawn, I am also offering 10% off of one order…I wanted to be sure that no one was left out. Please leave a comment to let me know if you are interested.

Emily said...

Yeah, that's lame. I'm thoroughly convinced that all those type of contest are rigged just based on their rules!

Pam @ Kassie's Beach said...

I never understand those contests. They seem rigged. Good luck...because we know who has the cutest kids in that contest!

Foursons said...

Oh how I hate contests like that! I hope your photos win. If they do be sure to post it on your blog so we can celebrate with you.

I love your new header.

Thanks for linking up!

Even better are the most beautiful baby contests where they allow voting. That gets me.
Good luck...though.
