The last giveaway is now closed. Thousands of subscribers and only eight entries. Dude. On the bright side, we appreciate the entries even more because there were so few of them. Thanks to everyone who joined! As for the rest, we’d love to hear your suggestions so we can offer better things next time around. Shoot us an e-mail at info at beyondmegapixels dot com. Also, if you’d like to sponsor a kickass giveaway for the rest of our readers, we’d be more than happy to accommodate you.
