You might say I’m a little photography obsessed. I will do anything and everything to find time in a day to take some photos. That said I am always looking for good ways to archive and share them.

Nikon developed the My Picturetown site just for that!  To store and share photos!

See my full review here on Blissfully Domestic, and think about the photos you would love to share.   It offers the ability to create a Photo Movie that can be emailed to anyone!  Late with those Holiday Cards?  Send a Photo Movie instead showcasing photos from the year!  And just in time for the holidays, my Picturetown is currently offering 3 months free off of its Gold Account with the promo code: FREE3MTHS. #SQUEE!

They just launched a holiday photo movie contest site for my Picturetown  – winning shots will end up in a photo movie that Nikon sends to the entire my Picturetown community:!!

And the coolest part of this whole thing – (LIKE THAT WASN’T COOL ENOUGH?)

I get to give away a Nikon camera!   One winner will receive a Nikon COOLPIX S5100.

How to enter:

Hit me with your best shot!  I want to see your favorite photo (that YOU took) of the year!  It can be linked on flickr, a blog, picasa, twitpic **… or you can add it to the comments (200kb max) using the upload feature in the comment section – oh and BTDUBS, family  site, all photos must be “G”rated…

** pls don’t link facebook photos b/c I cannot see them :) and if your pic does not show up you must LEAVE A LINK TO A PHOTO TO COUNT.

Extra entries by:

Trying out and blogging about My Picturetown and the contest, and leaving a comment with your blog URL-  you can include your fave photo in this post (make sure you leave a comment for the photo entry and another for the extra blog entry)

Tweeting the contest “Nikon, My Picturetown and @linda_sellers are giving away a Coolpix Camera !”  and leave the link to your tweet in the comments


Contest will end January 2 at midnight and winner chosen at random! We are  NOT responsible for failed photo uploads, so you might want to link it too from an outside source.  If your comment doesn’t seem to upload the photo (if you can’t see it), leave a second comment with a photo link and that will count if the incomplete comment is chosen.  Photos deemed offensive or not “G” rated will be removed at the blog owner’s discretion.  By entering you agree that you own the rights to the photo and winners are chosen randomly, not based on photo-ability.  Your photo remains yours and will not be used by anyone – it’s merely an entry in this contest.  You must be 18 or older and live in the US.  This contest is sponsored by Nikon.

      Was going to say if anyone knows what kind of animal this is I’d really appreciate knowing. It looks like a cross between a deer and a horse.

    I have all kinds of pictures of my girls. And all of them they are sticking out their tongue, their eyes are closed or crossed. Or worse? Their hands are in front of their faces. They HATE me chasing them with a camera.
    So, this picture? Is not a picture of any of my kids. But it is still my absolute favorite one of the year.
    It’s a simple drop of water from the kitchen faucet.

    Enjoyed seeing the pictures others posted! We currently don’t have a digital camera…the one that we bought broke and then my husband borrowed one from a friend (which has since broken also) and took this picture during our yearly trip to Mexico to visit his family. Not only was this a beautfiul memory of an amazing day on Cozumel, but it’s one of the few pictures without people holding beers (keeping it G-rated! :)). Now let’s hope I can get it to upload.

    We foster dogs and last spring we took in 3 dachshund puppies who were removed from an abusive home. We cared for them for 6 weeks before it was time to find them new homes. I set out to take pictures to distribute and after many outtakes, I got this precious shot. I didn’t have to look far or long to find them homes — My sister adopted them all! I had this framed for her as a gift.


    Thanks so much for the chance to win, I borrow my mom’s camera and I’d love to return it to her for good!

One of the most surprising successes is this shot of raindorops on lillies. Since I can’t teach it any new tricks, I’d love to have a new camera with new tricks. Thanks for the giveaway.

    I’ve taken a lot of photos this year, and a big chunk of them are cosplay photos. Cosplay is short for “costume” and “play” that many anime fans partake. I participated in a worldwide event called Hetalia Day by going to the one in Chicago and took pictures. The show, Hetalia, is about the world countries interacting as people.
    One of my favorites is this photo of an America cosplayer in front of the “Bean” in Millennium Park.
