'Tis The Season For Fun Giveaways!

'Tis The Season For Fun Giveaways!

I know it’s only October, but I can’t help myself; I’m excited and ready for the holiday season. From Halloween to Thanksgiving to Christmas and New Years, there are so many fun ways to get together and celebrate. At BEEF, we are getting into the holiday spirit with some fun contests and giveaways. And, the first one starts today; one lucky reader – the winner of a this week’s funny caption contest – will win a $50 Roper Apparel gift certificate!

This photo by Lauren Chase, author of a photo essay book of Montana ranching titled “Big Sky Boots,” needs a humorous title or caption, and we are calling for your best ideas! Leave your best caption or title for this photo in the comments section below to be entered to win. Entries will be accepted until noon on Wednesday, and our winner will be announced on Thursday, Oct. 18. Good luck!

Name this photo!

In addition, be sure to mark your calendars to participate in these upcoming BEEF Daily contests, as well, including:

Oct. 29: Funny Caption Contest; winner gets a $50 Roper Gift Certificate.

Nov. 5: Funny Caption Contest; winner gets a $125 Roper Boots Gift Certificate

Nov. 19: Funny Caption Contest; winner gets a copy of “Big Sky Boots: Working Seasons Of A Montana Cowboy,” a beautiful coffee-table photo book by Lauren Chase ($75 value).

And we will round out these contests with our final reader photography contest for 2012. Starting on Dec. 10, we will take entries for “Santa’s Little Helpers,” sponsored by Farm Boy Apparel. We are looking for photographs of your kiddos in action on the ranch -- helping feed cattle, riding horses, showing their 4-H projects, or maybe even decorating the Christmas tree -- the sky is the limit. Get creative and start snapping photos to send my way! Our top two photographers will take home $100 Farm Boy gift certificates, and three voters will win Farm Boy hats.

Also, check our Facebook and Twitter accounts often, as we will have plenty of prizes to give away as Christmas draws closer. It’s going to be a lot of fun, and you aren’t going to want to miss a second of it.

I can’t wait to see your entries on this first contest! Have fun and good luck!
