A good partner of ours, LensRentals.com is running a contest to win a MacBook Pro w/Retina Display. Apparently people like the laptop and think the screen is pretty good. I might be one of those people.
I’ll say it right off the bat, the contest is for US residents only. It’s not because LensRentals.com dislikes the rest of the planet, it’s just about laws, borders and that sort of thing.
The contest info is in the graphic below (Click for larger).

Down to the final 13
The 2nd round of selections in the Lens Giveaway Contest has finished.
Congratulations to all the category winners.
See the winners here
Each category winner will now be judged against each other to select the top 3 photographs from the contest.
How were the category winners selected?
A panel of 4 judges:
- A high end wedding photographer
- Technical photography wizard
- Mixed Medium Photographer
- Yours Truly
- Each judge ranked each category 1st through 10th.
- A 1st place showing was worth 10pts, a 2nd place showing was worth 9pts, and so on.
- If there was a tie, the first tiebreaker was highest position on the 4 lists. The 2nd tie breaker was the lowest an image appeared on a list.
The next round will use 10 judges to select the winner and the two runners-up.
Added Prize – Landscape Category Winner
The folks at Gura Gear have donated a Gura Gear Kiboko 22L to the winner of the Landscape category. Congratulations zedarean!
I’m working on prizes for the other categories, this came about after the contest was already judged.
