BenSpark’s August Add It Up Contest is over. In one of the most complicated contests I could devise I had some real die hards playing the game. Comments coming in at all hours and some super posts were written by the contest participants. I have so appreciated the time and effort that everyone put into this contest. You really all did a great job. I unfortunately cannot give you all 1st, 2nd or 3rd prize but I will do something special for the folks who got about 5 points. So, you wanna know who won???

Mo came out on top after a spectacular display of commenting like crazy. Mo looked back over the week that was and posted comments on all photo platforms, other participants blog and on The BenSpark. Her final score added up to 2100 out of a possible 2625 points. Mo went all out and for her trouble and effort she wins her choice of a year of a Flickr Pro or Zooomr Pro account and $25.00 to spend at Kodak Gallery. Way to Go Mo!

Lisa came in 2nd place not to far behind Mo. Lisa’s final score added up to 1975. She gave it her all as well and kept on commenting despite major storms and an in home flood. What a contender. Lisa wins a 2 year subscription to PCPhoto Magazine.

Christine walks away with a $10.00 Kodak Gallery gift certificate with her 3rd place victory. Christine’s final score added up to 790 points.

I’ll be contacting each of the winners via e-mail to arrange the delivery of prizes. Thanks to everyone for their participation this past month. The contest proved to me to be a real success and a lot of fun. I can finally put away my Excel Spreadsheet. I no longer have to count and keep track of many things. I can sleep without numbers rattling around in my head. Believe me I had so much fun doing this and I hope that you did too. I hope you found some new blogs to read and new people to converse with. That was also an intention of this contest.
