SmugMug is celebrating its 10th birthday, and want you to partake in the festivities by giving away a year of SmugMug Pro (awesome website/portfolio hosting service) and a copy of Lightroom 4 (the best combination photo editing and photography workflow program) for either PC or Mac! We have extended the deadline until tomorrow, so get your entries in!
Sorry for the delay in making this announcement everyone, but we have a winner! It was a closely fought contest that had oscillated among leaders, but in the end 32% of you chose the very unique and quite spectacular image from Linhbergh Weddings! Great job, I'll bet the client was very happy.
We've narrowed the entries to our Unique Wedding Image contest down to the top 10. Now it's up to you all to pick your favorite. So which one wins the Custom USB drives to help make their wedding business better? Poll will remain open until tomorrow evening at which point we will announce the winner!
We have teamed up with PremiumBeat.com to give away what may be the most anticipated video camera of 2012, the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. This camera is has a 2.5k sensor that shoots in 12-bit Raw with 13 stops of dynamic range for less than $3000. Up until now, these specs were only available in cameras over $10,000. Just like our last 3 major contests, this is a Facebook contest and it is extremely easy to enter.

If you have pictures on your iPhone and wish they were decorating your walls instead of being forgotten in your camera roll, then PostalPix is the service you have been waiting for.

Our Flickr Contest is back, and we want to give you a gallery wrap of ANY SIZE (your choice!) from our pals over at ClickPixx. What does it take to get a beautifully mounted wrap on the wall of your super awesome modern bedroom? Just submit a photo that you think perfectly embodies the theme "Summer of Love."
Last month we gave a Canon 5DM3 away in our Facebook Fan Contest. The contest was such a success we decided to do it again. Just like last month, to enter the contest you simply have to "like" 3 Facebook pages. If you get anyone else to sign up for the contest you will receive an additional 3 entries per person raising your chances of winning considerably. Check out the full post for all the details.
Over the past two weeks we have been getting piles of entries from Fstoppers readers who wanted to nab a Lytro for their camera collection. We've narrowed the entries down to the top ten, and now it's up to you all to choose the winner. Poll is open until Thursday at noon PDT. So who wins your vote?
June is the month to win cameras here at Fstoppers. Not only are we giving away a Canon 5D MKIII or a Nikon D800, but until June 26, you can enter to win a Lytro! This tiny little camera got a lot of hype at the end of 2011, and for good reason. It basically redefined what a still image could be and introduced the new light field sensor unit of measurement, the megaray. So join Fstoppers and Camera Awesome as we give one away!
Last week we concluded our giveaway for a year of SmugMug Pro plus a site customization, and I'm proud to announce the winner: Nathan Mays from Bristol, Tennessee!

Check out some of his photos, and read a bit about him!
