Hello and happy Friday! A few times a year, I hold a contest of some sort. These contests are such fun for me to hold and I just get such a thrill getting to peek into your beautiful homes and seeing our various products coming to life. So this contest is open to anyone who has purchased something from my shop. I always like to include examples of what a “good” picture/entry looks like which I have done further down in this post. The picture(s) should be clear and in complete focus, the colors should be crisp and there should be no flash or bright lights. Best pictures are those taken during the daylight. Here are the few rules for this contest- Your picture(s) must include an item purchased from The Enchanted Home There is no limit as to the subject, it can be a room shot, an outdoor shot, vignette, a table setting, etc…… 1-2 entries max per person (cannot be same picture but slightly different angle) Please email ALL entries ONLY to firstname.lastname@example.org (if you email to any other address we cannot process your submission) On subject line please put CONTEST (so we can distinguish your emails from others) Please in your email include your full name We reserve the right to not accept your picture due to clarity, exposure, blurriness, size, etc……we will definitely let you know if we cannot take your picture and give you the opportunity to submit another We are accepting pictures today through Oct 2nd (or until we reach 80 pictures whichever comes first). The contest will start October 4th. A winner will be crowned on Sunday, Oct 7th. Question? Feel free to give us a call at 800-804-9565 _________________________ Here are some previous entries that best exemplify the quality and clarity that your picture should have. PLEASE take note of these and use these as a good barometer as to how your own picture submissions should look in terms of being crisp, bright and focused. Cannot wait to start getting in your pictures!
