Face The Music

Are You Putting Your Best Face Forward?

As a photographer, I can’t help but notice people’s profile picture on Twitter.  It really tells you so much about the person.  I can’t tell you how many times I have followed someone on Twitter based entirely on a cool profile images.  How do we reward these creative souls?  I decided to setup a contest to try and figure out who has the absolute best profile image on Twitter.  Eggs need not apply!

Face The Music

Use your face to win some music.  The winner will get a $25 iTunes gift card to download music, movies, whatever you want!  Sound fun?

The Competition

The contestants will be randomly placed in a playoff bracket and compete head to head each week.  The winner will take home the title of “Best Twitter Headshot 2011” and $25 in iTunes cash!

How To Enter

There will be 16 competitors. I will choose 8, based on my own travels around Twitter.  The next 7 spots will be chosen by you- the readers.  If you see someone who has a cool profile pic, just leave their Twitter name in the comments below.  The 7 people with the most nominations will be chosen to compete.

What about the final spot?

The last spot will go to the person who tweets this message the most often:

Can your profile picture win you a $25 itunes card? #facethemusic http://bit.ly/vcPCWm

You must wait at least 3 hours between each tweet – but beyond that, its up to you.  One point per tweet.  The person with the most is in the competition.

There you have it!

Nominate Now

You can nominate anyone you want- including yourself.  Just leave the nominee’s @name below. The deadline for entries is Friday, December 9th at midnight CST.

Good luck and put your best face forward! 

p.s.  You might want to follow me to keep up with the competition as it develops!

  2. Mike Barker

    @elexbe – Me.

    I liked the idea of trying to build a brand around anonymity, thus removing my face from photo, because it’s juxtaposition at its finest. Check out my profile, and if you like then a cheeky follow would be great! I’m sure I’ll follow you all back!

    @TwitchyNugget (myself of course;) and some (perhaps a lot) of my lovely twitter pals @Tarahdise @BronxGunny @Grunt2083 @King_McDrinky @USMC_Gunny @WarriorotCross @NickColgin @mikehmltn @AdrianFeniXx
