Mixbook Announces Dad's Got Talent Contest 2012What's Your Dad's Hidden Talent? A Contest to Award Dad's Hidden Talents, Caught on Camera (May 15, 2012)
PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/15/12 -- Mixbook (Mixbook.com), the free online photo book service that offers the most customizable photo books and photo cards on the planet, announces today a national competition to celebrate Father's Day. Mixbook's Dad's Got Talent Contest will begin May 15th and runs through Father's Day, June 17th. Contestants will have a chance to upload a photo of their father's hidden talent, and through the power of social media, rally for votes to get Dad named to the top of the Super Dad list. The Grand Prize, a $1,500 gift card for Dad to go wild at Best Buy, will be awarded to the entrant whose photo receives the most votes.
To kick off this content celebrating all those amazing, astounding (and sometimes embarrassing) things that Dad does, we have invited top bloggers such as Happy Hour Mom, Lil Sugar, Daddy Mojo, Utah Mom and Mommy Instinct to judge the competition and chose five First Place photos.
Mixbook will also offer five free photo books to entrants who share their photo on Twitter using hashtag #mixbookdad. Five randomly selected winners (one per week) will be announced.
Here's how it works (starting May 15th through June 17th):
- Find or take a picture of dear old dad that highlights his hidden talent
- Go to Contest Page: https://www.facebook.com/mixbook?sk=app_226105637428999&app_data=Dads-Got-Talent-Contest and upload photo
