The winner of the local photography session for Project Love has been announced! Click here to see the blog post announcing the winner!

****Entries for Project Love have been extended (see below) due to an event to be held on July 23rd promoting Project Love. Please click here to view the blog posting about this event, and to see details of who will be helping me to judge the Project Love entries!****

Project Love is officially launched! This project was inspired by the love that I witnessed between Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi in their wedding video.

Part of the dream is to travel to L.A. to photograph Ellen and Portia for their upcoming wedding anniversary on August 16th. (If you are on twitter, please send an @ message to theellenshow to let them know about this project!

Noah, Rebecca and I are fans of both The Ellen Show and Portia’s new show, ‘Better Off Ted’. Noah is especially enthusiastic, and created a wonderful poster for Project Love, which you can see in the following youtube video:

The local dream is to celebrate Love in Toronto by holding a contest in which the winner will have a complimentary photography session with me.

Here’s how to enter: email me a jpg photograph of who you love and why you would love to win the photography session. See below for further details/requirements*. If I can get Ellen’s attention, perhaps she will help with the judging! Otherwise I will be announcing local judges soon.

So, whether you are a family:

A couple:

Or have a pet that you love:

I have a question, if I participate in the contest with a photo of my dog, and I win, will the photography session be with my dog? Thank you!

HollyJune 6, 2009 - 7:34 pm

Thanks for the good question Christiane! The answer is yes, you enter with a photograph of the person/animal you love, and they would be the subject of the photography session.
