Shutterfly Long Live Summer Photo Contest

*This is a sponsored post.*

We all know that I like taking pictures.  (I’ve been kind of lazy about that lately, but I am trying to start using the proper camera again and not just my phone camera.)  And we all also know that I am a big fan of Shutterfly and their photo books.  I make one for Elizabeth’s birthday every year (shut up, I am NOT still working on her second year one) (and the third year one simultaneously, shut up, I know it is JULY).  I also do calendars every year now and I made family cookbooks for Christmas for everyone last year.  So Shutterfly gets a lot of my business, that is what I am saying here.

So when they emailed me and said that they were having a contest and would I promote it (in exchange for a free 8X8 photo book- exactly what I have in progress on their site right now!), I was like “sure!”  So here, some promotion with all the details!

Long Live Summer – Facebook Photo Contest details – 7/9 – 8/12 Multi-week summer themed photo sweepstakes with instant win prizes.

Win a trip for four to The Bahamas and a professional photo shoot so you’ll remember your vacation forever.  All you need to do is upload your favorite photo and caption based on the theme of the week.  Get a gift from Shutterfly just for entering! You can enter at any point during the 5-week sweepstakes period.


•       Week 1(7/9): Americana

•       Week 2 (7/16): Great Outdoors

•       Week 3 (7/23): Water Fun

•       Week 4 (7/30): Sports & Activities

•       Week 5 (8/6): Parties & Celebrations


  • Instant win prizes just for submitting a photo!
  • Weekly prizes (contestants can enter one time/week)
  • Weekly featured photos: up to 5 weekly entries will be selected from the gallery and featured on the Facebook fan page and awarded a $500 gift card on Shutterfly and a copy of the new Lonely Planet travel photography book.
  • Grand prize: trip for 4 to Bahamas, 4 nights, family photo shoot
  • Shutterfly Sweepstakes – Official Rules

Personally, I have to admit that I am more interested in the instant win prizes because I feel like I am way more likely to win that than the trip to the Bahamas, but I will not be turning down a free trip to the Bahamas either, should I receive one.

So go, enter, and win something!

Like I said before, this was a sponsored post and Shutterfly is giving me a free 8X8 hardcover photo book plus shipping for writing this.  But I usually use up more than the allowable pages, so I’ll probably have to pay for those extra ones.  I’m okay with that.
