Announcing the BorrowLenses.com Fan Photography Challenge

How It Works
Every Monday, starting today and ending at the end of October, we’ll be announcing a new photography contest theme. You’ll have 1 week to submit your best photo via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. For Twitter and Instagram submissions just mention @borrowlenses and include the hashtag #FanChallenge to be automatically entered.  Voting is open during the submission period plus 1 week following. Share your photo with your friends, family and fans and vote once a day to increase your chances of winning. At the conclusion of each themed contest votes will be tallied and a weekly winner will be crowned. Each weekly winner will win a $100 BorrowLenses.com gift certificate and will have their image and web site featured on our Facebook page and blog. Select your best and submit up to one photo per day. In our final week of the fan photography challenge we’ll pull together the top 10 highest vote getters from each theme and include them in our finalists gallery. We’ll reopen voting, with everyone starting at 0 votes, and the highest vote getter will be awarded a $500 BorrowLenses.com gift certificate as the Fan Favorite award. From this same finalists gallery we’ll have a distinguished guest judge select the grand prize winner who will receive a $1000 BorrowLenses.com gift certificate.
