Today’s winner is Ciara of Ciara’s Ramblings and she has won a Sanyo Xacti EC1 Digital Waterproof Camera/Video Camera. IMPORTANT: Watch the Whole video for 3 new ways to enter the contest!

Also I have a contest ending today for a year’s membership to Stepping Stones Together, an online course to help teach children to read. Please enter.

About the prize: I actually purchased this camera a year or two ago to replace my original Sanyo Xacti C4. The first two years of Photo-A-Day Photos were shot on that camera. I used that Sanyo Xacti C4 to record my first episodes of The Wired Kayaker podcast in 2007. So when I got more serious about taking video on the water I bought the Sanyo Xacti EC1. However, I got sponsorship from Kodak in the form of some PlaySport cameras and decided that I no longer needed the EC1. So that is why it ended up in the swag bag. The camera is a decent little gun grip type camera with multiple functions and takes great video in and out of the water.

Winners are chosen with Random.Org

About SwagsGiving!

SwagsGiving is happening each day from November 1 to November 30th. Each day I put up a new SwagsGiving post explaining how to participate. The post will also have an announcement of the previous day’s winner plus what the person won. Here’s the twist. You won’t know what you are winning until it is announced. I have prizes from Seagate, Kodak and Toy State as well as books, and various other prizes. So, here are the rules. Please read the rules carefully and follow them, if they are not followed then your comment will be removed at the time of selecting a winner.

Today is your nineteenth chance to enter to win a prize from my SwagsGiving event. Remember to come back each day to see if you won and to enter for the next day’s SwagsGiving Prize.

There are 5 EIGHT Ways to Enter (Leave 1 SEPARATE Comment for EACH Entry). Each can be claimed daily.

Only legitimate entries are counted. You have until midnight EST to enter for that day’s prize. Once midnight EST. rolls around (or as early the next morning as possible) I will close the comments. Each morning at 9:00am the new #SwagsGiving post will go up. The winner will be notified via e-mail and will have 48 hours to reply with a U.S. Mailing address so that we can send the winner their prize. Contest is open to U.S. Only. Prizes will be mailed out at the end of the month. You may win more than once. Please enter every day on the SwagsGiving post for that day. Please only enter once, do not use multiple names to enter. Make it fair for everyone and don’t stack the deck.
