Onextrapixel’s 2nd Anniversary Celebration with Awesome Prizes

How time flies! Today we have reached another milestone as Onextrapixel celebrates its 2nd birthday. We have not forgotten this memorable event though our celebration has been pushed back a little.

We are very happy with what we have achieved so far and to celebrate our anniversary, we would like to share our joy with our faithful readers and supporters.

We have been giving away great freebies almost every month and held many contests where our readers can win many fabulous prizes. This has been very popular and instead of taking this away, we are increasing the prizes courtesy of our kind sponsors!
