Photo Industry Partners to Give Away South Africa Photo Safari


Safari_Sweepstakes.pngNik Software, Artsy Couture, Blurb®, Datacolor, Eyes on Africa, Graphic Authority, Lowepro, and Professional Photographers of America (PPA) announce the continuation of a special sweepstakes promotion that began at the recent Photo Plus Expo in New York City and ends February 1, 2011, with a Grand Prize drawing. Contestants can enter the sweepstakes either online at or at the upcoming Imaging USA show in San Antonio, January 16-18, 2011. The Grand Prize package, which will be awarded to one lucky winner, is valued at approximately $12,000. Intermediate prize packages, drawn monthly, are valued at approximately $3,000.

The Grand Prize package includes a 10-day South Africa Photo Safari with famed professional photographer John Paul Caponigro and a collection of top-of-the-line photo products and services. Organized by renowned tour operator Eyes on Africa, the Photo Safari will begin in September 2011 and features photo opportunities in the world-famous Sabi Sand Game Reserve and the many landscapes of the Cape Town region.

"Africa's beauty is intoxicating. The people, the animals, and the land are enchanting. One lifetime just isn't enough to see all of Africa, but no lifetime should pass without seeing a part of Africa at least once," said John Paul Caponigro. "I can think of no better way to truly see Africa than on a photo safari organized by Eyes on Africa."

How to Enter
To enter the sweepstakes, contestants may use an entry form available online at or use a free "passport" found at each partner's booth at the Imaging USA show. When using the passport to enter the sweepstakes at the Imaging USA show, contestants must visit each partner's booth to receive a "passport stamp." Passports completed with all 7 stamps may then be submitted at the Nik Software booth (#1443) to be entered in the Grand Prize drawing and the Imaging USA drawing prior to Tuesday, January 18, 2011, 12:00 p.m., CST.

Remaining Prize Drawing Schedule
A total of 4 remaining prizes, including the Grand Prize, will be awarded during the remaining Sweepstakes period. Each of the remaining 4 prizes will be awarded in separate drawings held on 4 separate days during the Sweepstakes period, as more fully described in the Official Rules. Entries will be accepted throughout the remaining Sweepstakes period. In order to participate in an applicable drawing, as well as all subsequent drawings, your entry must be received by the appropriate deadline for that drawing, as indicated below:

  • December Drawing. To participate in the drawing for the December Drawing prize and all subsequent drawings, your entry must be received no later than 11:00 a.m. on December 17, 2010;
  • Imaging USA Drawing. To participate in the drawing for the Imaging USA Drawing prize and all subsequent drawings, your entry must be received no later than 8:00 a.m. (PST) on January 18, 2011;
  • Grand Prize Drawing. To participate in the drawing for the Grand Prize only, your entry must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. (PST) on January 31, 2011.

You may only submit one entry. By entering prior to the November Drawing entry period deadline, you will be entered for a chance to win one of the 4 remaining Sweepstakes prizes. However, if you submit your entry during the Sweepstakes period but after the Sweepstakes entry period deadline for a particular prize, then you will have missed the Sweepstakes entry period deadline for that prize and will therefore be ineligible to participate in the drawing(s) for that/those prize(s). If you plan to enter the Sweepstakes at the Imaging USA trade show, then be sure to submit your stamped Passport prior to Tuesday, January 18, 2011. If you enter by submitting your Passport at the Imaging USA trade show, you will only be eligible for the Imaging USA Drawing and the Grade Prize Drawing.

Winners will be chosen by random drawing and need not be present to win. Official rules are available online at For a list of the winners, visit
