Hiya myLotters and friends! I'm sure almost everyone here on mylot and are also present or active on the other site, have noticed how this social networking site is being used as medium for promotions and even contests. There are photo contests and even pageants, use facebook to gather votes by liking their pictures, and so on. Last month, I read about the photo contest sponsored by VAM, an artist management company. The mechanics said that photo should be with the actor using the sponsored products or shot with the product/s at the background. I am not really pond of joining contests but since I have already a photo wearing the shirt which the actor endorses, I posted my entry. Fortunately, I placed second in the said photo contest. Have you joined a photo contest or any other contest online? Please share your experience. ~~~ NEIL™ ~~~ 20120912 1438H

My sister was just telling me how she just found out her 14-year-old son had won an online game contest. The only reason my nephew told his mom about it was because he needed her account to have the prize money transferred... My sister always complains that her son spends too much time in front of his computer playing games; little that she knows he was on his way to be some kind of national champion on that online game (not even sure what exactly is the name of the online game)...

Yes neil, just recently if you also saw my discussion here regarding the photo I saw in FB the I won a camera. I really don't know that it is a contest, I only hit the like button just because I'm a user of their product and surprisingly I did won the fan page contest. I will attached the photo if you missed it in FB.

I am not into contests at all, but when there was a recent photo contest on a local radio station's Facebook page, I could not resist in entering it. It was asking for people to send in photos of their motorbikes and the ones with the most likes each week went through (after 4 weeks) to the final where people then voted for their favourite. There were some amazing bikes sent in so I stood no chance with mine!
