Free giveaway! Win a photo print from my Etsy store!

Are you ready for some shameless self-promotion? Because here it comes:

Oh! This is cool: I gave up my half-hearted attempt at keeping myself quasi-anonymous on Facebook and set up an actual That’s My Bix Facebook account. The best part of this has been actually getting to see some of the faces of people who have left comments and sent e-mails over the years.  Also, I’m kind of a dork, but I love seeing your status updates. If I haven’t added you, it’s only because I added too many people in a short amount of time and now Facebook thinks I’m some kind of Facebook jerk, so if you’re so inclined, I’d love to be your friend.

Also, I was feeling a bit brave after my Etsy store got its first sale and sent some photos to a local gallery and now I’m going to have some photos in a show. Which is crazy and amazing and kind of blows my mind that people think I don’t suck as a photographer. Especially since I still feel like most of my photos are a happy accident and not, you know, ART. One of the photos that will be in the gallery is at the top of this entry! The unfortunate side effect is that I’m going to have to raise my prices in the Etsy store so that its not competing with the gallery’s pricing, which makes me feel a little like an ass, so I haven’t raised the prices yet. But soon.

To help me not feel so much like an ass, I’ve decided to give away a 12×18 print from my Etsy store to two lucky readers. Any print of their choice! Including any print that may have appeared here on this website or on other venues, as long as I shot it.

How do you enter? Easy!* For the first giveway, just leave a comment on this entry. For the second giveaway, leave a comment on this Facebook status. Oh, yeah, you’ll have to add me as your friend if you haven’t already.

Yes, this is a cheap desperate ploy to get comments and more Facebook friends. Don’t judge me. I’m not above bribery. Civilizations were built this way.

*The Fine Print: Winners will be selected using a random number generator. All entries must be received by Midnight CST on Oct 22 in order to qualify for the drawing. Also, regretfully, this contest is only open to readers in the USA and Canada, due to shipping issues.

    I have been on the verge of purchasing one of your prints for a while [but was kind-of hoping to make my first etsy sale first ;)], so maybe now, I can win it instead! Here’s hoping!

    Weee! So glad you have an Etsy account and ARE NOW HAVING A SHOW! I have always enjoyed seeing your photograpy and would love to win. I’m actually being a good girl and sticking to my budget (especially since a jerkface account dropped me OWING ME 2 MONTHS), so will be unable to purchase through Etsy for the time being….but I’ll be putting it on my Christmas list!

    Oooh neat! You do take some fantastic shots, let me tell you. So consider this my first entry.

    It looks like we can’t see the Facebook post until you add *us* as friends, though. Oh well. I’ll worry about that later 🙂

  28. As a personal lover of all things arty by Bix, (I believe outside your home I may have the largest collection of your prints, work… maybe?) I would love to have another photo of yours to add to my fabulous pad. Come see me! 🙂 xoxox

    You have no idea of the influence you have been on me in the “Fuck the voices” department. I found myself getting much less able to say that as I got older, and your blindingly shiny example helps me stay strong. And I’ll tell you a secret–the world will never know how much great art was a “happy accident”.
