Photo Contest

Growers Supply Photo Contest

Another summer is here, and that means it's time for Growers Supply's annual Photo Contest. We like hearing feedback from our customers, but we love getting pictures of our products in use. Do you have a picture of one of our structures in a scenic setting? How about a new or unusual product application that you've been using? No matter what it is, we want your interesting and unique pictures featuring Growers Supply products, so submit your photos to our 2015 Photo Contest.

To enter all you have to do is submit at least three high-quality photos of your Growers Supply products in use and describe what is depicted in the photos. We ask that you please send the highest-resolution images possible (300 dpi digital images), and if you've used a digital camera the pictures will most likely meet these requirements. Just submit your photos to in your camera's original file format (.jpeg, .tiff, .png), or post them to our facebook page.

When you submit your photos, make sure to share your Growers Supply experience with us! Let us know how our products have benefited your business, garden or home, how the ordering process worked for you or if you've made any modifications to our products. You may find your testimonial and photos featured in our catalog!

What are you looking for in winning photos?

Each participant must submit at least three high-quality photos. We are looking for striking images of products purchased from Growers Supply. These images should show the product in use. We ask that you send the highest resolution images possible (300 dpi digital images). Our judges are interested in seeing photos taken from different angles, as well as close-up and wide angle shots. For inspiration, please see our previous years' winning photos. Submit your files in your digital camera's original file format (i.e., .jpeg, .tiff, .png). Photographs should not contain distinguishing marks (i.e. time-day stamp, name, copyright).

How will Growers Supply use the photos I submit?

If your photo(s) is selected, Growers Supply will post your photograph(s) to our websites. In addition, Growers Supply may feature your photograph(s) in our print catalog and other marketing communications such as, but not limited to, magazine advertisements. Accordingly, by submitting a photograph(s) in the Contest, you acknowledge and agree that Growers Supply shall have the right (without limitation or further compensation) to edit, adapt, modify, reproduce, publish, promote, display and otherwise use your entry in any way it sees fit, including the right to publish your entry online and in print, as described herein.

How will the contest be judged?

A panel of judges, selected at the sole discretion of Growers Supply, will select winners based on the following criteria: photo uniqueness, product usage and photo quality. Judges' decisions are final.
