Do you love showing off your Growers Supply products? Think you're using them in a unique and interesting way? We'd love to see! Submit your photos to our 2013 Photo Contest. The best submission will receive a $500 gift certificate and five runners-up will each receive a $200 gift certificate. To participate, submit at least three high-quality photos of your Growers Supply products in use and tell us what is going on in the picture. We are looking for striking images of products purchased from Growers Supply. We ask that you send the highest resolution images possible (4" x 6" prints or 300 dpi digital images). Pictures taken with a digital camera will often meet these requirements. Submit your files in your digital camera's original file format (i.e., .jpeg, .tiff, .png).
We aren't just interested in great photos—we'd also love to hear how our products are working for you. Let us know how you benefit from using the products, how they impact your business or home, your experience with ordering from us or any modifications you have done. You may find your testimonial and photos featured in our catalog!
