Six weeks ago we released the public beta for Beam, our new platform for beautiful and bold portfolio websites. Thousands of PhotoShelter members have made the “switch” and are using Beam to showcase their work with one of four new designs. And needless to say, we’ve been really impressed by the new sites we’ve seen so far.
So now that you’ve got your Beam site up and running, it’s time to show it off! We want to see what you’ve done with your new site, and give away some free PhotoShelter while we’re at it.
The Show Us Your #Beam Contest is your chance to shine: share a screenshot of your Beam site on Instagram or Twitter, and you’ll be entered for a chance to win 3 free months of PhotoShelter. Not a PhotoShelter member? Sign up using the promo code #BEAM and get a free 14-day trial of our Standard plan, which includes Beam websites and the full suit of PhotoShelter tools.
Here’s how to enter:
1. Follow PhotoShelter on Twitter and/or Instagram. Then take a screen shot of your Beam website – or better yet, a creative shot showcasing your site as it looks on your computer/laptop/tablet/etc. – and post it to Instagram or Twitter. Tell us what you love about your new site, and tag @photoshelter and hashtag #beam (otherwise we won’t be able to find your photo!)
2. Share your Beam shot across multiple platforms – Facebook, Google+, Pinterest – and you’ll have a greater chance of winning.
3. The contest ends on September 23, 2013 at 11:59pm Eastern. Be sure to post your shot before then!
4. PhotoShelter CEO Andrew Fingerman will choose a winner to receive 3 months free of their PhotoShelter account*.
We’ll also be re-gramming (that’s Instagram speak for reposting) and re-tweeting our favorites throughout the next two weeks. Andrew loves a good story, so be sure to put some thought into the caption/tweet about your new site.
So go ahead – Show Us Your #Beam!
Any PhotoShelter member with a Basic, Standard, or Pro account is eligible for the contest. To be considered, the member’s account must be in good standing at the time of selection. The winning member will be credited for 3 months of service at their current account tier (Basic, Standard or Pro). The Contest will open on September 6, 2013. All entries must be made by 11:59 PM ET on September 23, 2013. One winner will be selected, in PhotoShelter’s sole discretion, based on the entrant’s Beam site submission image.
