Laura Chase Voices.com Photo Contest winnerWe received many amazing, hilarious and creative photos this week from people who are members of our Voices.com Facebook page.

Our team is grateful for the 150+ pictures that were received and we are eager to acknowledge the winner and eleven other people whose photos stood out and were designated as finalists.

This contest gave us a means to get to know more people in our community and also gain a better appreciation for what your home studios are like and how Voices.com plays a role in your business.

Picking a winner for the Voices.com Photo Contest wasn't easy, but we're pleased to announce that we have chosen someone!

Find out who the winner is and also who the finalists are in today's VOX Daily.

Photo Contest Winner, Laura Chase!

As you've seen from the picture, Laura Chase says humorously that she's not clowning around about her feelings for Voices.com. Her creativity in dressing up as a clown was a great effort and the icing on the cake was that Laura also decided to use the photo she submitted as her profile picture on Facebook! How cool is that?

In addition to being creative, Laura's photo also met the contest requirements, including displaying the Voices.com website on a screen (in this case, on her laptop computer) in her recording environment and tagging the photo with her name.

Congratulations, Laura! Your 16GB iPad will be shipped to you soon.

There are a number of people we'd also like to acknowledge as finalists. The received submissions were so different and interesting that it wouldn't be right to recognize one person alone. The finalists can also look forward to a special gift in the mail from Voices.com in recognition of their effort and contribution to the contest.

What you see below are representative of the amazing talent and people who love Voices.com.

It's All About The Sound

Lisa Biggs sent in a couple of shots and this one resonated the most with us. Isn't it true that voice acting affords you selective fame and relative anonymity?

A Gary Owens Moment

Rick Worsnop's photo takes us back to the golden age of recording with the stereotypical announcer pose, cupping the ear while animatedly reading a script. Got to love the sepia!

Pure Photography

No photoshopping here from what we've heard! Toby Ricketts submitted an open air photo in the picturesque landscape near to where he lives in the beautiful country of New Zealand.

Karen Commins sent in a photo featuring her studio decked out with at least 7 screens displaying Voices.com! A beautiful studio aside (I'm a sucker for Parisian decor), Karen's submission was too good not to share.

5 Screens, Baby!

When we asked for the Voices.com website to be displayed on a screen, Mark Theobald went all out and had Voices.com on not one but five! Nice gear, Mark!

Bird's The Word

Toby the parrot joins his human friend, voice actress Julie Williams, in a special recording session for the Voices.com Photo Contest. Toby says, "You're not in business till you're on Voices.com!" (Actually, Toby repeats that because Julie says it!)

Freeze Frame!

Jesse LaPierre shows us what it is like to go from one end of his studio to another, Photoshop style, in this engaging picture.

To The Moon And Back

Here's another photo that experimented with our brand but in outer space! Luke Korns created an image that included the face of Voices.com CEO David Ciccarelli on a flag being planted on the moon. Very creative!

Scripts Everywhere

Federico Louhau sent in a photo that shows him being flooded with scripts and one can only imagine, job offers. Neat photograph, Federico!

Fed Or Voices.com Photo Contest finalist

Recording Space

Steve McKenzie took time to have a photograph taken in the area where he records his auditions. A walk-in closet!

Feel The Love

Guillaume Savard sent in a photograph of himself in studio with Voices.com logos and labels on all of his equipment in addition to making an I ♥ Voices.com t-shirt.

              Stephanie, thanks for a fun contest and for selecting my picture as a finalist. Actually, Voices.com is on the screen an astonishing *13* times! We took the picture of all seven devices and then displayed that picture on the foreground laptop when we took the picture you see above. :)
