Sorry for the delay (holiday season tends to do that, as you can probably understand), but we are ready to announce the winner of the Lowepro Bag giveaway! We saw a lot of hopeless, sad and some of them downright confusing, entries to this contest, and judging it was a tough call. We're going to show you a few of our favorites, but to pick a winner Lowepro chose to select someone who made the most out of their bag-less situation.
First, let's take a look at some of our favorite entries. These photographers are struggling, all of them without a real bag to carry their equipment in. Honestly guys, your stuff is going to get pretty banged up in grocery bags, orange boxes, and really? A pillowcase?
There were a lot of situations like the ones above, so to break the tie Lowepro decided to give the bags to someone who may not have had a real way to transport their equipment, but they sure as heck made the most of what they had.
Winner: Jason Rineer
Lowepro was impressed with the custom dividers Jason built for his cardboard box. It's actually a pretty nifty setup, but it's not what we would call "all weather." Jason, you just won yourself a Lowepro prize pack worth $570! To claim your prize, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congrats to Jason, and thank you all for entering! Want the chance to win more cool photo stuff? Keep checking back here for more awesome contests as we ring in 2013!
