Flashmint.com starts Xmas and New Year contest.

Write “www.FlashMint.com” at some original and unusual place or scene, take a picture of it, send it to FlashMint and get $850 in cash. Nice gift on the threshold of holidays, isn’t it?

The contest actually consists of two parts and you are free to take part in both of them or pick only one that you feel passionate about. However, let’s relate the contest parts as they take place.

Starting from today, we are launching a Christmas giveaway of $500 to the best shot of “www.FlashMint.com” and make sure you send it to us within one month, that is prior to December, 15.

Anyone from around the world can enter the contest with no age restrictions. We will publish all the submitted pictures at our blog allowing everyone to review the shots and to get inspiration from them. This may be anything from “www.FlashMint.com” written on your car bumper to the sign on the roof of the skyscraper. (We are not responsible for any damage or self-injury you may get within the contest participation.)

We do not limit you in the number of photos you may send us, we will publish the best of them at our blog. However, please note that you should choose only one picture for the contest voting.

Entries must be received by Monday, December 15, 2008, at 11:59 p.m. EST. After the contest period expires (December, 15) there starts the 1 week voting.
You may also publish the picture at your website, blog, social network page and encourage anyone to support your entry and vote for it. This may be your relatives, friends or anyone you know. Besides, if you submit your shot at your own blog and send us the link, we will add 10 voting points even before the voting starts.
Interested in getting these points? Then please insert this code into your web page: Get the code here.

However please note that you may not spam or send bulk emails requesting to vote for your entry.

For this 30 day competition, please send us the high quality pictures with no Adobe Photoshop used; however, minor digital enhancement is permitted. Our Photoshop experts will easily disclose all your tricks, so this will not make sense to anyone to cheat on the contest.

Every visitor can vote for the photo he/she likes and we count the votings. However we do check votings from inside (IP of the voter, etc.) and cancel cheating votes + blacklist cheaters.

We also must have a way to contact you if you win a prize, please bear this in mind as well.

Every author sending the photo on the competition wants to hear the reference about it, so we would like to invite you to vote more actively on the website :). And, of course, your comments and notes are more than welcome. Because everybody wants to see any kind of replies about his/her work.

Any of your entries will never be used by FlashMint in any manner for advertising or sale without author’s permission. Photos must be appropriate for posting on a public website. Obscene, provocative or otherwise questionable content will not be considered. FlashMint retains sole discretion as to what constitutes inappropriate content.

So, think of the best and most genuine image and fly to the contest to get $500 in cash.

Happy competition and may the most creative one win! ;)

But this is not all! The second part of the contest is of great interest for the blogging community. Bring the largest number of visitors to our website from November, 17 till December, 15 and win $200, $100 or $50 for attracting the first, second, third largest number of visitors respectively.

What should you do? The rules are quite simple:

* write a blogpost about our Contest and link back to Flashmint website from your blog by adding a code fragment into the post: Get the code here.


* just add the code fragment under your latest post Get the code here.

Of course you may slightly change in the text of the paragraph at your discretion, the only request is to leave the anchor texts just as they are, and the links should be “dofollow”.

Thus, if you participate in both parts of the contest, you may get $850 prior to the holidays and spend this money to whatever you like.

Do not hesitate to participate even if you do not feel confident that your blog can attract a highly competitive number of visitors! Besides, we will provide a free PR 5 backlink to all participants whose blogs will not have scored enough referrers for the first three places. Both contests results will be announced on Monday, December 22. Good luck to anyone!

P.S. Below you may see the minor sample of “www.FlashMint.com” that first crossed my mind when thinking about the contest. Enjoy and feel free to comment!
