Four calling birds, three french hens, two turtle doves, and a partridge in a pear treeeeee! Are you singing that song in your sleep yet? So are we, cuz we’ve got our own twelve days, and we’re giving away stuff that’s way better than birds and drummers!

Announcing The 12 Days of PicMonkey: twelve days of photo challenges and insane giveaways. Each day we’ll have a theme; you interpret this theme with your beautiful PicMonkey creations and share them with us, by using the hashtag #PicMonkey12. We’ll be looking for your holiday photos on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr, Muzy, WeHeartIt, Pinterest, and Google+.

We’ll select a winner the day after each challenge. In addition to a prize every day, we’re going to select one final overall winner for a grand prize that is wow-wow good! So keep your photos coming to increase your chances. The overall winner will be announced December 23rd. The challenge starts December 9th; start planning and editing your shots now (or scouring your old photos for the perfect matches).
