I can’t believe it’s Friday already! You’ve certainly kept me entertained with your photo competition entries. Thanks to Tracey Jean Russell we launched our Style Statement competition. Not sure what fashion guru Gok would have made of some of the fetching outfits you shared but I loved them. There was plenty of posing going on too – great fun. So on to the important business of selecting a winner. PhotoBox’s first style award goes to the ultra chic Nikkii Hall.     Loving the look, as Kerry Hancock commented a bit of a David Bowie inspired feel. Congratulations you’ve won yourself £70 of PhotoBox Gift Vouchers. Here are some other favourites for you all to enjoy.     As it’s nearly the weekend I think another competition is in order. I’ll come back at the end of the day with another challenge.

Strike a pose in our style statement competition

September 27, 2011
Thanks for all your great competition ideas – brilliant as usual. I’m going to hold fire on the Halloween suggestion for now as it’s a little early, but fear not it will happen as the photo opportunities are way too good to miss.     So what did we choose? Well I feel ready to have some fun so it’s Tracey Jean Russell’s suggestion of ‘Fashion Statement’. Cheers Tracey. Could be your latest look, your most dated look or favourite fashion nightmare. Let’s bring out the fashionista in us all. To get us started I’ve included some photo inspiration from Ceri Deveney and Walter Taz Church.     Usual rules apply, that’s a maximum of two photos per person (must be your own photos) uploaded to our Facebook wall. Deadline is midnight Thursday  and the prize to compete for is £70 of PhotoBox Gift Vouchers. Post those pictures now!  

Goodbye summer hello autumn

September 26, 2011
Morning! Hope everyone had a great weekend. I certainly made the most of the sunshine by getting outside as much as possible. What a treat. There’s even talk of the possibility of an Indian summer, but from your latest photos there’s no doubt that autumn has most definitely arrived.     For our latest photo comp we asked you to complete the sentence, ‘You know it’s the end of summer when….’ and post a picture to match your caption. We’ve had some great entries so, as you can see, I’ve put together a colourful collage of a few favourites. Our winner this week is Dawn Mosely Woodward. Well done you’ve won yourself £70 of PhotoBox Gift Vouchers. It’s time for you to get shopping!     Ok I think we should crack on with another competition asap. What theme would you like next? Please post your suggestions on our Facebook wall.

PhotoBox takes home top photo mag award

September 23, 2011
There’s been so much excitement in the office today as news that we’ve won another award has spread. Yep we triumphed at the Gear of the Year awards by winning ‘Best Photo Finishing Service’.     Of course our number one aim is to keep you, our customers, happy but who doesn’t like to win award?! So last night we went to join Digital Photo magazine and Practical Photography as they hosted their annual awards, which have now been running for 26 years. It was a highly entertaining evening at the Courtrooms at Browns in London’s Covent Garden. We took along wedding and lifestyle photographer Claudia Carter, who kindly took these fantastic photos to share with you.     Andrew James, Editor in Chief at Practical Photography, and Jon Adams, Editor at Digital Photo, did their traditional comedy duo act on stage as the jokes ran freely prior to the awards kicking off. The awards themselves are voted for by their loyal readers so we couldn’t wait to hear their verdict, gladly it was amazing news. For the second year running we won ‘Best Photo Finishing Service’. There wasn’t even a highly commended in our category as we won it unanimously.  I hope that puts you in the mood to celebrate with us this weekend!     A huge thank you to everyone who voted for us and everyone who has sent their congrats today. As you know we love photography and are passionate about printing. Getting awards helps us know we’re on track. So here’s to another 12 months of innovating and improving and hopefully – fingers crossed –we’ll repeat the same success next year. Remember to get snapping over the weekend for a chance to win our latest photo competition, ‘You know it’s the end of summer when…’ Have a good one
