Let me start by saying thanks to Seagate for all their support of Ausphotography and its members in the past, with the provision of some great prizes.
When Seagate came on board and approached me about sponsoring a major competition on the site, I dealt with a lovely lady by the name of Ashleigh. Ashleigh co-ordinated everything from the Seagate side, planning the competitions, what the prizes would be and then arranging the distribution of those prizes to the winning members.
Ashleigh left her position in the latter part of 2011, and moved to the UK. I was then put in contact with Karen. Karen was very helpful. However, the last time I contacted Karen, she advised that the company was going through some restructuring and that she would be in touch when we could plan/announce the next Seagate competition.
Since early December, I have tried to contact Karen several times, and not been able to. All my emails, go unanswered, and I have also left a few phone messages, that have not been returned.
Therefore, sadly, I have now removed all the Seagate logo's and advertising from Ausphotography, along with closing the Seagate Competition forum. I hope in future, we can re-establish contact, and may be able to offer something as wonderful as what Seagate did in the past.
So, unfortunately, at this time, we will not be holding any further Seagate competitions on Ausphotography.
