I am SO HAPPY to see that other KatyCats are winning this!!! It was such a wonderful gift to be able to see her again in Miami, and I wouldn't have had that opportunity without this contest. Of course in an ideal world all fabulous fans should be able to win, but in my biased opinion, I think that we are highly suitable candidates.
18k photos?! You've gotta be kidding me. I only posted 7 and I thought that I was on the side of overdoing it.
I don't know how all of this works- I mean, maybe it is really completely random. But I have to think that maybe there's a certain amount of preferential selection involved. For example, I made a separate instagram account for it, had katycat in the username, and only used it to post photos for the contest. All very public-friendly. I'd have to think they're paying attention to the PR aspect. Would they really want to pick someone with 18k photos, or would that come off as spammy? Would they want to pick someone who also had photos in their account of nudity or violence? These are all things that I'd imagine they're considering.
