Origrami Giveaway (open worldwide!)

26 Jul

It’s Jillian In Italy‘s first giveaway today!  I’ve been thinking about doing a giveaway for some time now and I wanted it to be a good one.  So after a lot of pondering and humming and hawing I decided to contact one of my favorite companies to see if they’d be interested in working together.  Luckily they were!

So today’s giveaway is sponsored by the fantastic company OrigramiOrigrami is a husband and wife team based in Sydney, Australia who print up stylish prints of your Instagram shots.


They have a great user-friendly website that allows you to log in with your Instagram account and choose 36 square prints on matte premium card-stock.  There are multiple design themes to choose from including a photo map on the back to show where the photo was taken (how cool is that?).

Screen Shot 2013-07-26 at 10.23.04

They arrive (in record time I might add) in your mailbox in a super stylish cardboard box.  This really is the ultimate way to display your favorite IG shots or to give as an original gift (they even have gift cards available).  I ordered a set a few months back (see them here) and I’ve displayed a lot in my home, sent a ton to my 91 year old grandmother and even carry the rest in my purse to show every Tom, Dick and Harry I come across (lucky them!).


So today we’re giving away a set of Origrami prints (many thanks to Origrami for offering this to Jillian In Italy readers!) and I’ll be throwing in a little package including a few of my handmade wooden Origrami photo holders (see them here) as well as some other surprise items (gotta love a surprise, no!).

*contest open to everyone, worldwide!

*open until Friday August 2nd at midnight (Italy time my friends!) and I’ll announce the winner on Monday August 5th

*leave a comment here telling me your favorite subject to photograph (with your phone or camera!).

*go visit Origrami and show some love

*I’d greatly appreciate it if you shared this contest on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter (but it’s not obligatory)

*only one entry per person

*and if you like you can include your Instagram username so we can all check out some of your shots (yeah I’m nosy). I’m here on IG.

Happy Friday Everyone!

    I”m known to be the one who doesnt leave one beautiful moment not captured by the camera,something to inhale upon, fill the lungs with nostalgic tenderness. I mostly love taking shots of food i cook, veggies, fruit shakes, markets, and… My adorable grandchildren.

  3. Jill @ Made with Moxie July 26, 2013 at 13:48 #

    Wow. Those are so cute. My favorite subject is my kiddos hands down. Those turkeys are always up to something. As soon as they sew my get out my phone they shout “cheese!”

    What a super idea for a giveaway! I know how much you love photography – great idea! I actually have 2 favorite subjects to photograph – One is my girls – I just love watching them love & live life! It’s great to photograph them engaged in whatever we are doing. My other favorite love is to photograph the places we visit – I find the outdoors, the towns and where ever we are so fascinating and a photograph helps to preserve that memory. It’s so fun to look back on our previous trips – even if it was just for a day – out and about somewhere close by. – My instagram name is AmericanMominBordeaux. (I love Instagram for that quick pic, that quick capture and just daily fun!) Thank for the give away – Hope you are having a great summer!

    What a fab giveaway! I tend to snap photos of 5 yr olds & shoes – don’t know what that says about me. 😉

    My IG name is @nilsenlife !!

  7. pianoB July 26, 2013 at 14:40 #

    Wow! I’m quite new to Instagram but I love it… and I would love these cute prints! My favorite Instagram subjects up to now are daily life scenes, let’s say I use it like a sort of diary, to keep track of the small joys everyday. Btw, I’m niachan_80 on IG 🙂

  8. m. July 26, 2013 at 15:18 #

    As I wrote on Instagram, I’ve just ordered my very first Squareprints, but 36 are not enough, so here I am! 🙂
    Just take a look at my Instagram profile and 99% subjects are my sons, quite obvious for a mother in love 🙂
    Shared on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest

    fingers crossed!

  10. growingberries July 26, 2013 at 16:43 #

    These prints look so gorgeous – I would love some. Instagram has been my summer obsession. I find it really helps with my photography and I love the daily record of my kids and beautiful French neighbourhood that I’m building up. Other Instagrammers are so inspiring so it’s great to find some more people to follow here. You can find me @growingberries

  11. Malin Sofie July 26, 2013 at 17:21 #

    What a nice first give-away:) I love photography and most of all taking snapshots of friends and family when they’re not looking!

    I love your blog. Full of life and great ideas. Makes a rainy day a lot more bearable. Thank you from beautiful Copenhagen:)

    What a fun giveaway and cool product – love to photograph my travels and with the upcoming move to Denmark, there shoudl be even more of those!

  13. Jennifer July 26, 2013 at 17:36 #

    It was your post on IG that lead me to place my first Origrami order and I couldn’t be happier with the quality. And you weren’t joking about the lightening fast shipping! My favorite subject is definitely my 3 kids. My littlest one and I spend a lot of time waiting for her older siblings as they do ballet and soccer so we fill the time by playing and snapping photos.

  14. Michelle July 26, 2013 at 18:15 #

    I love photographing my children and the details of beautiful things. 🙂

  15. cilia1 July 26, 2013 at 18:30 #

  17. Greta July 26, 2013 at 19:09 #

    Origrami sounds like a fabulous company. I’m so happy to have discovered them here!
    I love to photograph food and family. Like someone else said, it’s like a journal that I can look back on.

  18. Jaime July 26, 2013 at 19:10 #

    I adore shooting the lake around the corner from home. Lake Ontario!

    What a super cool giveaway Jillian! I’m a total newbie to instagram but addicted already. My favorite things to capture are colorful things, which means it can be almost anything, but I especially like taking photos of fruit. (I’m @joelixjoelix on IG or click on my name to see my feed)

  26. Kate Shirton-Smith July 27, 2013 at 01:45 #

    My favourite subject to photograph is my 11 month old daughter, Isla. I have learned a ton about indoor photography, and having a subject that is squirmy and ever moving! Before I had her, most of my photos were taken outdoors, nature in particular.

  27. celina July 27, 2013 at 07:36 #

    Oh what a fun giveaway! My kids are usually what I photograph, but you can never really see their faces ( my husbands wishes)- it actually pushes me to see differently! Can”t wait to read you interview on Monday, how exiting!!! My IG name is @petitapetitblog, see you there 😉

  28. ktwhelan July 27, 2013 at 12:31 #

    My children, of course. But also our dogs. Recently I have been taking more picture of the views outside the windows of our home. I love to see how differently it looks depending on the time of day

  29. uxipi July 27, 2013 at 12:35 #

    I love giveaways.
    I don’t need a specific subject to take a picture and share it on instagram, so my profile is full of music that I buy, family, my pets, places that I visited(or accidentally found), and other bizarre moments.
    My instagram username is @uxipi, and you’re all welcome to visit my profile 😉

  30. Stephanie July 27, 2013 at 13:04 #

    What a super super cool give awayJillian! I love Origrami and was thinking about ordering a bunch of prints 🙂 But maybe I win some, you never know 😉 I love taking pictures of everyday life (the beauty of daily life). During my travels, at home and everywhere else. Bye!

  31. superfreshbabypants July 27, 2013 at 14:11 #

    My fave thing to photograph? The sunrise when I’m out running! I’m on IG @rainecloud 🙂 Love this comp, thank you! xo

  42. Rebecca July 29, 2013 at 18:48 #

    I love taking happy, positive pictures with my iPhone and posting on my Ig account @cornishrobin. It can be Sunday breakfast, a day out or time with my daughter, but it has to have a feel good factor or its not worth taking the photo at all!

  43. Lea Anna July 29, 2013 at 20:29 #

    How fun! I only just started using Instagram more, but I usually take photos of stuff I’m up to (like everyone else) but more specifically nature stuff. You can see @lakhoffman

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  44. Nicky Kirk-Martin July 29, 2013 at 20:33 #

    My favourite subject to photograph is my travels – be that my daily commute to work, a quick weekend away or a glorious holiday in the sunshine. I love looking back over the weeks and months and all the photo memories I’ve captured!

  45. swisscheeseforbrains July 30, 2013 at 03:52 #

    I just got my order from Origrami, and I’m so incredibly impressed with the packaging, presentation & quality of the prints. They just made a long term customer out of me!!

    And my favorite things to photograph- my daughter & two nieces!!

  46. giova brusa July 30, 2013 at 12:22 #

    Hooray for this most excellent first giveaway! I ordered from them some months ago, but what the heck, I want more!! Favorite subject is…. who knows, is everything an answer??

  55. jodidelgado August 2, 2013 at 15:16 #

  56. Chasing Hygge August 2, 2013 at 16:26 #

    Great giveaway – I really like Origrami 🙂 My favourite subject when I take photos is…people. Especially people I don’t know, or people I don’t know well…I am a little shy to do it as much as I want, but I want to challenge myself and do it more! I am an anthropologist and I would like to try doing a photoessay this summer 🙂
    I don’t have FB but I will share this on Pinterest and Twitter.
