Giveaway: Shutterfly's Photo Books and Announcements

One of the great things about working for the New York Institute of Photography is listening to students tell us how much they are learning from our course. We here from students and grads daily, and most of them are raving about a job they got, or a photo they took, or a contest they won, with the help of our course. We love hearing feedback like that, and it helps us to push ourselves to continue to serve every single student to the best of our ability.

One thing that we know students are interested in are ways that they can use their photos creatively. Not everyone wants to make a living in photography, but people are looking for ways to share their work. In steps Shutterfly…

Shutterfly makes it easy to use your photos in fun, creative ways. From photo books, to thank you cards, to announcements, they allow you to order products with your photos printed on them. And today, we’re lucky enough to be able to offer you the chance to win a free 5x7 photo book, or 50 free announcements.

If you’re interested in winning, all you have to do is leave a comment below, and share this post on twitter using the text below.
