NYC Headshots Contest 2009 – Winners!
Tucked away under: Just for Fun
The results are in!
With over 2,000 unique voters giving their opinion, it’s time to see who came out on top…
After running the results through my handy-dandy duplicate removing system, here are the final results… and it was close!
|Tara de Guzman||82|
|Kelly B. Lewis||81|
|Evan J. Palazzo||4|
Congratulations to Tahir Register and Calvin Winbush, who both used their network of friends and fans to boost them to the finish line!
Here’s a last look at their current photos… soon, they’ll have some brand new NYC Headshots to show off!
Headshots, Contests, & Promoting Your Career
So what can we learn from a contest like this? Is there anything to take away from it all? I think so!
None of us exists in a vacuum… at a certain point, we all need support. And as actors, support (and a healthy amount of self promotion) is truly one of the biggest factors in pushing your career forward.
Look for a post later this week reflecting on the contest, what I learned as a result, and how you can turn these results into a tool for promoting your acting career.
In the meantime, use this opportunity to wish Tahir and Calvin a warm congratulations, and to all of our finalists who are also pursuing their dreams.
As a thank you to everyone who took part in the contest, any finalist who books a NYC Headshot session before 2010 will receive $50 off a 3-Look session or $75 off a 5-Look session.
And for the remainder of November, anyone who books a headshot session and mentions the contest receives an extra Hi-Res, retouched image with their session package.
