Philips Digital Photo Frame Contest

by Janice


This is another EXCITING contest! Get ready – we are giving away a 9″ Philips Digital Photo Frame!!!

If you are thinking, “Well Janice, that sounds nice and all, but what on earth is a digital photo frame?” Let me tell you – it is just one of the coolest gifts you could give a person! And for someone like me – it is just about perfect.

See, I have something to confess – although I take thousands of pictures, I have printed barely any in over a year!

And when I do send them to the printer, I never get them framed and on display. At best a few make it to my fridge – but most live, lonely and unsorted, in boxes! I am so busy I just never seem to have the time to get my photos out so I can enjoy them. (This is coming from a once addicted scrapbooker – but life has gotten just a little busy!)

And it really drives me crazy because I love looking at my photos. So when I got the chance to try out Philips Digital Photo Frame I was thrilled. This is the perfect idea for me!

I can store and display my favorite shots right in this unique digital frame – I can even make albums and do slideshows!

That isn’t all either:

  • I can rotate, zoom, crop and add effects to the photos
  • I can display and manage my photos on memory cards or with the internal memory
  • The image quality is incredible
  • It comes with a USB connector to easily download from my PC
  • It operates on AC power or cordlessly with a rechargeable battery
  • I can even automatically turn display on and off at preset times
  • …And the frame is beautiful too! (They come in various styles and sizes.)

It really is a fabulous idea – and a totally perfect gift to give to a digital photographer. I am thinking Mother’s Day maybe… (It would also be a very cool wedding gift!)

So do you want one?!?

Cause we are giving away a 9” model that retails for $249.99!!! Is that exciting or what!?!
(If you are looking to buy one, Philips has links to all the retailers and I noticed Amazon has the 8” model for $204.15.)

We will play by the usual rules:

Here is what you do:

  • First – sign the Mr. Linky (the Mr. Linky is that list of names at the end of this post – just type your name in the box) with your name and URL by Wednesday, April 25th at 12:30pm Eastern. We will announce the winner Wednesday afternoon. (This is such a cool giveaway, we thought we would give you a few extra days again.) Note: make sure you have signed the Mr. Linky by 12:30pm Eastern, Wednesday April 25th. If you are not a blogger, you may still enter. Just sign your name on the Mr. Linky without a URL and then email me your contact information at janice @ (remember to remove those spaces!) Please note on your email that it is for the Philips Frame contest.
  • Second – on your blog, link to this contest. I am sure your readers will want the chance to win such a fantastic prize. And please also link to Philips to show our appreciation. If you are not a blogger, no worries, you obviously can’t link. But if you want, you can tell your friends about the contest.
  • Note: Due to shipping restrictions, we can only ship this prize to a US shipping address. Our deepest apologies to all you Canadians (we feel your pain, but we do not ship the product – the sponsoring company does.) I am trying to find some special contests for you though!!!

Good Luck!

PS – In case you missed it, I posted some links earlier today to some fantastic contests going on elsewhere in the blogosphere. And if you emailed us with a contest that you wanted us to link to and I missed you, my apologies. I tried very hard to make sure I wasn’t forgetting anyone! Just drop me an email and I will see what I can do for next time.

This contest is now closed and we have a winner… Toni at In The Midst of This Season. Congratulations Toni!!!

I’ve seen those but haven’t been able to afford it. It’s so cool! Especially for someone like me. Lately, I haven’t printed any of my photos to scrap, much less to frame!


2 Andi April 19, 2007 at 8:07 am

I’m new, but loving the site! I have been wanting one of these for a while, but have been finding it hard to justify the cost. It would be great to give to my husband so he could look at all kinds of pictures of our son and the baby that is due on May 16.

My blog is new and quite sparse…still under construction, you might say.



3 Heather April 19, 2007 at 8:43 am

I was thinking of getting something like this for DH’s office. Our kids are growing so rapidly that he will have dozens of framed pictures .. and still not have the most current!

Awesome giveaway.. thank you!


4 Adventures In Babywearing April 19, 2007 at 9:20 am

I totally need to win this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



5 amy April 19, 2007 at 9:29 am

me too! i’m posting about the contest right now!


6 Jean April 19, 2007 at 9:29 am

This is awesome! I would have a hard time if I should give it to my mother for mother’s day or keep it for myself. :)


7 Laura April 19, 2007 at 10:11 am

We all need one of these. My little girl is so well-photographed, as a typical first child is, but her pictures are rotting away in our computer. Great contest!


8 amber April 19, 2007 at 10:12 am

My girlfriend received one of these as a gift at Christmas. They are incredible.


9 Kara April 19, 2007 at 10:27 am

Oooh, I would so love one of these, they sounds awesome!


10 Michelle April 19, 2007 at 10:43 am

You are so cool! I have been wanting one of these FOREVER, but they so expensive!


11 suzanne April 19, 2007 at 11:07 am

This is probably the ONLY material thing I would want for Mom’s Day. I am a photographer and believe me, this would get a LOT of use in my house!


12 Lauren April 19, 2007 at 11:49 am

I would LOVE to win one of these. I also struggle to get my pics printed, though I’ve fallen in love with shutterfly for their collage feature. I might get past page 4 of Baby Bear’s scrapbook sometime soon!


13 Jill April 19, 2007 at 12:34 pm

I am on a winning roll… I won a contest from my salon a couple weeks ago and I just found out that I won your prize in Beth’s giveaway for people promoting For Heather! I selected the Big Wheel…. The Boy is going to love it!!

Let’s see if I’m lucky enough to win this digital frame too!


14 Lani from The Wooden Porch April 19, 2007 at 1:08 pm

Awesome! I thought about buying one of these for my FIL for Xmas till I saw the cost. They really are cool though!

I don’t know if it’s me, but I can’t get the links to Phillips to open…


15 Jennifer Lavender April 19, 2007 at 1:23 pm

You do not understand how bad I want to win this one! I have been looking at these picture frames ever since they first came out and were closer to $500-1000 depending on size. WOOHOO! You guys are awesome.


16 Julie April 19, 2007 at 1:45 pm

Wow, this rocks! I am a broke law student (and new mom!!) so there is no way I would be able to buy this frame on my own. I’m sure my baby boy would look great in this frame :) You ladies are amazing!!


21 Linda C April 19, 2007 at 4:26 pm

37 CoachJ April 20, 2007 at 11:36 am

39 Pong Wife April 20, 2007 at 1:49 pm

40 Tricia Jorke April 20, 2007 at 2:15 pm

41 Jennifer April 20, 2007 at 5:28 pm

The 25th is my 30th birthday, so I should automatically win. LOL….

Best of Luck to us all though. Great contest by the way…


42 Stephanie April 20, 2007 at 5:34 pm

We had one of these for my grandmother for over a year, and it just got fried in a power surge! I feel bad because she really loved having all those pictures, especially the ones of my niece (her great grand-daughter).


43 ilker April 20, 2007 at 6:43 pm

Awesome.. I’m in! =)

48 Susan Joyce April 20, 2007 at 9:11 pm

I just heard of these frames Tuesday night at a Gideon banquet. One of the men at the table had just gotten one for his birthday. I was intrigued by it.


49 melody April 20, 2007 at 10:52 pm

Hey, did you hear? Every one of the entrants would like to defer to me because they know how I REALLY want this prize.

Well, it was worth a try. ;)


50 Heather April 21, 2007 at 1:53 am

Thanks so much for the chance to win the prize. How fun it must be to host giveaways like you do. I’ve always enjoyed the giving more than the receiving myself…but I still like to receive!! If any of your sponsors want another site to host giveaways, I’m game!!


51 groovyoldlady April 21, 2007 at 9:01 am

55 lilllium April 21, 2007 at 5:27 pm
