A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words And Some Cool Prizes! #MasConCricket @MiCricket #Ad

This is a compensated campaign on behalf of Cricket Wireless.  All opinions are 100% mine.

    I’m sure that many of you are familiar with the old adage, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”  It basically means that one single still image can convey a complex idea.  In laymen’s terms, it means that photos can share a lot more detail than mere words.  That is exactly the premise behind the  La Búsqueda del Más giveaway that is currently being hosted by MiCricket.  In this case, every picture you upload as part of their December photo challenge is not only worth a thousand words but could potentially be worth  a lot of prizes!

    I first shared this exciting contest with you all a few weeks ago when the photo challenge began.  Now that the promotion is in full swing, I wanted to remind some of you of the many ways that you personally can take part and possibly even win big daily.  After all, every day, you have the opportunity to participate in fun photo tasks that will enter you to win amazing prizes!

Here are some of the ways that you can enter:

  • You can enter on MiCricket’s Facebook page under the photo contest tab by uploading a photo that corresponds with the daily prompts that you are provided with daily. An example prompt would be like today’s prompt which is “Share in one word your one wish for this holiday season.”
  • The other way that you can enter is by  tweeting your photo at @MiCricket and using the #MasConCricket hashtag.
  • Also, you can gain entries by submitting your daily photo on Instagram using the #MasConCricket hashtag and tagging @CricketWireless in your post.

Here is my photo entry for today’s prompt.  My wish this holiday season, in one word, is “family.”

    Let me once again mention that, at the end of the promotion, one lucky winner will be awarded a grand prize valued at $2000!  I’m sure that many of you could definitely use this kind of an incentive to help you ring in the New Year!  Don’t forget to follow the daily photo task on the MiCricket Facebook page and follow @MiCricket on Twitter to share your inspirational photos with others who are participating in this contest.

Let’s Discuss:  If you could have one wish come true this holiday season, what would it be?

I know It wont be possible to bring her this Christmas but I pray in the year 2014 that she will be home with us.

  9. GrandmaBonnie A says
