Get the Goods: Portrait Software Giveaway at is hosting a great photo contest with grand prize winners walking away with a coveted copy of the new Portrait Professional 8. I use the standalone version of Portrait Professional to help me quickly touch-up shots, and it's an invaluable tool to have in your post-processing workflow.

All photographers are encouraged to submit their favorite portraits of someone special in their life to win one of the three available copies of the software's latest update. And it's not your run-of-the-mill plug-in either... it's the studio high end version valued at $239.95!

So how do you get your hands on these? There are three ways to participate:

1. A Black and White Portrait

The first way to win a copy of Portrait Professional 8 is to submit a black and white portrait. The only two rules here are that the portrait must be in black and white and that it needs to be of someone meaningful to you.

This someone can be a family member, a close friend or any other person who has positive impact on your life. In the picture description, write why this person is meaningful for you.

You can submit a portrait to the contest by sending it to the DIYP Flickr group and tagging it with "DIYP" and "pp8giveaway".

2. A Color Portrait

The second way to win a copy is to submit a color portrait. The rules are similar: Post a portrait of someone meaningful in your life, be it your wife, husband, child, parent, friend. Anyone for whom you feel strongly. Post the portrait to DIYP's Flickr pool and tag it with "DIYP" and "pp8giveaway".

3. A Portrait Tip
The third way to win a copy is to submit a portrait tip. It can be a tip about lighting, posing, post processing, models, anything as long as it has to do with portraits and photography.

For a Flickr picture to be eligible to participate, it must have a short (or long explanation) on why you took the portrait of this meaningful person.

I am going to submit my signature black and white portrait of Teri and Avery seen above for the black and white portrait.
