Let me tell you one thing about me: I never win lotteries. Really. This is one thing that constantly discourages me from entering into contests that choose the lucky winner via lottery.
Although the Qubee See and Be Seen Photography contest was not based on lottery, but it was somewhat the same. Those who have read my previous post asking for votes for my entry on the contest would know that it was based on how many likes one can get for his photo. It entirely bases on publicity, how much friends you have and so on. I find it somewhat similar to lottery since I don’t have too many people in my known circle.
Still I managed to get a number of likes on my photo through blogs and social networking websites. But the problem occurred when two days later the company announced that those who like the picture will also have to like the page as well. That kind of killed my hope to make it to the next level because, as you can guess, it was not possible to ask every individual who liked the picture to go to Qubee page and like that as well. It will be more like annoying them. I find it difficult. But I still kept on promoting my photo.
You know what happened next. I did not make it to the next level. I’m not very much frustrated because I didn’t hope much either. I don’t have a reputation of winnings things from contest although I actually won a digital camera once.
How many times have you won contests and what were the prizes that you won? Let me know to help me encourage to enter more contests. 😛
