Mark your calendars… Southern Accents is having a photo contest on Saturday, April 27th! We get constant requests from photographers asking to use our showroom, outdoor lots and alley for location shoots. One of the things we love most about photographers is that each one sees the treasures in our showroom from a different perspective. The same scene shot numerous times looks different depending on the person behind the lens. With our ever changing inventory, the landscape of our showroom is constantly changing, creating a continuous need for new photos. They say a picture paints a thousand words… we use thousands of pictures to promote our business online as well as in print.
The contest will take place beginning at 9:00 am until 2:00 pm on Saturday, April 27th. You do not have to be a professional photographer to enter. Amateurs, bloggers, photo hobbyists, shutterbug wannabe’s are welcome. The contest will be open to the first 30 people to show up that Saturday, digital camera in hand, ready to register for the event. Registration will begin promptly at 9:00 am. Each participant will be allowed to submit up to 5 digital photos via e-mail. All submissions must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5:00 pm on Sunday, April 28th. One winning photo will be selected by a panel of judges. The winner will receive a $250 cash prize! The winning photo will be announced by Friday, May 3rd.
The purpose of the contest is to open up our showroom, warehouses, and outdoor lots to those interested in photographing our inventory of beautiful architectural antiques. In return, we get to use the photo submissions to help promote our business. Each participant will be asked to sign a copyright release form upon registration. Please CLICK HERE to read the contest rules and fine print as well as print off a copy of the release form. Please address any questions you may have to: email@example.com.
We are going to be taking a few pictures of our own that day! We want to get snap shots of our customers and find out where you are from! We are constantly amazed at how far some of our customers travel just to visit our showroom! We will be taking pictures and documenting travel distances for an upcoming online feature. We want to make this a fun filled day for everyone involved so… we will have the Big Green Egg going in the alley! We’ll be giving away grilled burgers, dogs, and ice cold drinks around lunch time!! Plan now to join us for this exciting event! Get your cameras ready, set, shoot!
