About the contest

February is here and love is in the air! Everywhere you go it seems the sweetest of songs plays, red roses are suddenly twice the price, and chocolate finds its way into the hands of sweethearts via heart-shaped boxes. Those things are nice, but what better way to celebrate than with a memory captured in perfect pixels?<br

The “Leap into Love” Snapshot contest is your chance to submit your Valentine’s Day themed images for a chance to win 1 of 4 awesome prizes.

The “Leap into Love” Snapshot Contest celebrates friends, family, loved ones – all of those who are beloved in our lives. While Cupid may be pointing arrows at this time of year, we know that love is much bigger than that. Love is kindness, friendship, balance, warmth, laughter, and so much more – so share it with us! Contest ends on February 29th.

Winners will be selected by a panel of judges made up of Residents and Lindens based on consistency with theme, originality, creativity, and overall impression.

Spread the word! :)
