Some suggestions if you write a GIMP testimonial: be honest and positive without over-emphasis, avoid negative comments about other programs, check your speeling, keep it relatively short and make sure that you are allowed to mention the name (and the country/state) of your company in the testimonial. Personal testimonials from artists who are not necessarily affiliated with a company are also welcome but it is probably too easy (*) to get personal testimonials so the focus should be on those coming from professionals.
I am sorry but when i read this, the first thing i think about is marketing corruption. It just my opinion nothing more but i would never ask someone to do that. Because it raises three questions.
a) why are my testimonials not good enough ?
Well, someone who writes a testimonial should be rather fluent in using about whatever he writes about - your other mails show that you currently aren't yet, as GIMP is concerned.
b) do you think i am a lier ?
Huh? Come again...
Being honest is one of the most important things when writing something that is intended for a large audience. There are lots of examples that it is good to remind people of the obvious - see slashdot comments etc....
c) are does testimonials real ?
This is of course something that might be hard to prove - but it shouldn't be impossible.
