AKD Photo Contest

Don't you just love contests? Well, I love to see your photos, so I thought a photo contest would be the perfect way to get more photos posted!

Contest Details

~~ Begins: Today
~~ Ends: November 18th – several reminders will be sent out on Facebook, so that you don’t miss out! Make sure you "like" the AKD Facebook page to get the reminders [Click Here]
~~ Winner will be Announced: November 21st [we will use Random.org to determine winner]
~~ Prize: 6 Pack Font Bundle, $54.00 value [Click Here] ~ Machine Embroidery Fonts [Alphabets] & Monograms and Applique Fonts [Alphabets] & Monograms
~~ How to Enter: You will receive one entry for each valid photo
  • Post photos of your projects using our designs on Facebook and Tag “AKDesigns Boutique Machine Embroidery Designs”. [see How to Post & Tag Pictures on Facebook below].
~~ How to Make sure Your Entry Counts:
  • Ensure that the designs in the photo are AKDesigns Boutique designs.
  • Go to the AKDesigns Boutique Facebook page [Click Here], click on “Photos”, then scroll down to the “Photos and Videos of AKDesigns Boutique Machine Embroidery Designs” section to see all photos posted by customers of AKDesigns Boutique. If your photo isn’t in this section, it might not be tagged correctly.
  • If your photo isn’t in the photos section, it won’t be counted. It can't be counted because we can't see it.
  • Photos that are tagged but have non-AKD designs will have the tags removed and will not be counted.
Chance to multiply your entries!
  • Triple Your Entries – post pictures on or before October 20th and we’ll triple those entries.
  • Double Your Entries – post pictures on or before November 4th and we’ll double those entries.
How to Post & Tag Pictures on Facebook
Select the method that's easier for you

1) How to Post Directly on the AKD Facebook Page
  • Go to the AKD Facebook Page [Click Here]
  • Click on Photo [to the right of status]
  • Click on Upload a Photo
  • Click the Browse button to find the picture on your computer
  • Once you find the picture, click on it once, then click Open
  • Add a note where it says "Say something about this photo" in gray if you like [or you don't have to]
  • Now click the Share button
  • Yay ~ the picture is posted!
2) How to Post on Your Profile and Tag
  • Go to Facebook [Click Here]
  • Login
  • Click on Add Photo / Video [shown in screenshot below]

  • Click on Upload Photo / Video
  • Click the Browse button to find the picture on your computer
  • Once you find the picture, click on it once, then click Open
  • Now click the Post button
  • Yay ~ the picture is posted on your Facebook account!
  • Now, you need to Tag it, so we can see it on the AKD page
  • Go to your Profile page [click on your name on the upper right side of the screen]
  • Click on Photos on the left [should be about the 3rd option below your profile picture]
  • Click on the photo that you just posted [you may need to click on it again if the first click just opens the album with more thumbnail pictures]
  • Now that you have the photo opened and it's pretty much the only thing on your computer screen, click on Tag Photo near the bottom right side of the photo.
  • Click somewhere on the picture [probably on top of the embroidery] ~ this will bring up a box for you to either type or paste AKDesigns Boutique Machine Embroidery Designs [this has to be spelled correctly for the tag to work]
  • If it's spelled correctly, the AKD logo will appear and you can click on it to select it.
  • Now click Done Tagging on the bottom right below the photo.
  • That's it ~ not so bad, huh? :)
Good luck and have fun!
I can't wait to see all the pictures!
