If you are a recent customer of ours you may have noticed that many of our product photos are product-only shots taken against a white background. These were taken professionally in a studio and serve an excellent purpose, but they don’t allow potential customers to fully appreciate how the products will look in the context of their kitchen or garden.
We were thinking about getting a photographer back in to take some ‘in situe’ photographs for us this year. But then we thought – wouldn’t it be better if the images were real? Pictures of products actually being used by our customers in their actual garden or kitchen have got to be better than fake, mocked up ones? And so, our Customer Photo Competition was conceived!
That’s right! We’d like you to pretend you’re David Bailey for a moment and send us your best shots (with a short caption or quote if you like) of your Wormery, Water Butt or Composter in position in your garden or kitchen. The best one will win a £75 one4all gift card that can be spent at over 75 different stores from Argos to Debenhams and Thomas Cook to PC World. Or alternatively £150 to spend with us!
You can email your entry to: firstname.lastname@example.org – or post a hard copy to us at Original Organics Ltd Photo Competition, Unit 9 Langlands Business Park, Uffculme, Devon, EX15 3DA. If you have any queries, just reply to this email.
There are a few conditions :-
1) In sending us the photographs you give us full permission to use them, uncredited, in our promotional material on or offline (we will try our best to let you know if we’re going to do this so you can feel proud of your great work!). We may also use your caption or quote – if you give us one.
2) Maria, Lisa and Katy in our office will shortlist the top 10 photos for us but the final vote will take place here on our Blog – all entrants will be contacted in advance of this taking place.
2) If you’re in a really snappy mood you may submit as many images as you like but only your best one will be eligible to make it into the shortlist of 10.
4) Entries must be received by 9:00am on Monday 10th September 2012.
Remember – the best images will be bright, showing straight taps (where relevant) and a clean product with any labels / decals properly stuck down!
