2 DAYS LEFT! Fstoppers Is Giving Away A Free Trip To Gulf Photo Plus In Dubai

To celebrate the release of our newest wedding tutorial, Fstoppers is giving away a free flight and accommodations to Gulf Photo Plus in Dubai! One lucky reader will fly out to GPP during March 2013 to attend one of the coolest photo workshops on the planet. If you win, you will pick the workshops you want to attend as well as win digital copies of Peter Hurley's The Art Behind The Headshot and Fstoppers' How to Become a Professional Commercial Wedding Photographer. All the juicy details are inside this post

All entries must be made between now and Friday January 18th, 2013 at 11:59 pm US Eastern Time. One "semi finalist" from each of the three platforms will be randomly picked. One of those three names will be randomly picked from a Nikon Coffee mug as the lucky winner! Stay tuned for an announcement on Monday January 21st to see who will be packing their bags and meeting us out in Dubai.

What is the grand prize?

The flight and hotel will be covered by Fstoppers (up to a maximum of $3000). Make sure you can schedule time off from whatever you might be doing between March 1st - 8th. The trip is non refundable if you are not able to attend in which case a random semi finalist will be chosen to take your place. Gulf Photo Plus is supplying a winner with an all access workshop pass for any workshops that have availability.

You will also receive a copy of our newest wedding tutorial: How To Become A Professional Commercial Wedding Photographer. You can learn more about this in the video below.

The winner will also receive a copy of Peter Hurley's tutorial, The Art Behind Headshot. You can learn more about that here:

If you have purchased either of the DVD's or your ticket's to Dubai for Gulf Photo Plus and you happen to win, we will reimburse you for everything you have already purchased. Good luck to everyone who enters and I hope you are as excited about this as we are here at Fstoppers.
