Davis, CA (PRWEB) March 7, 2007
BigStockPhoto, one of the world's fastest growing providers of low-cost, royalty free stock images, today announced, "March Million Madness", a countdown style contest to commemorate the upload of the site's one millionth live image -- a significant milestone that is expected in the coming weeks. This exciting promotion offers contributing photographers/artists and users/buyers several opportunities to win their choice of a cash prize or the latest Apple iPod technology.
Each week during the promotion, BigStockPhoto will be giving away $250 or an Apple 30GB iPod video to qualified users/buyers through a random weekly drawing. Users who have purchased at least $100 in image credits for the week are automatically entered into that week's contest. Weekly image downloads will also be tracked throughout the contest. Each week, the contributor who achieves the most downloads for the week will be awarded their choice of $100 or an Apple iPod Shuffle.
The contest will conclude with The MVP (Most Valuable Photographer/Artist) prize, which will go to the photographer/artist who uploads the one-millionth live image to the site. This contributor will have their winning image featured on BigStockPhoto.com with a link to their personal image portfolio and will be awarded their choice of $250 or an Apple 30 GB iPod video.
"We have an amazing community of loyal users and contributors," said Tim Donahue, founder and CEO of BigStockPhoto. "This promotion gives us the opportunity to celebrate this incredible milestone with them and to show our appreciation for the extraordinary success we've achieved together since launching the site two and a half years ago."
In addition to the contest giveaways, BigStockPhoto is offering a special pricing incentive of 100 image credits for $100 during the promotion period -- making it an opportune time for new users to discover and try out the site.
