Announcing the First Annual Factory Drapes Photo Contest


We know our customers are creating dramatic window fashions using our products, problem is we don't always get to see their talent, and neither do other customers. This is an open invitation for you to show us, and other customers your stuff. Top photos from each state will be displayed online and one luck winner will receive a $50 American Express Gift Card that can be used anywhere American Express is accepted.

Whether you're a do-it-yourself kind of person looking to show off your stuff, or a decorator looking for more online exposure, anyone can enter the contest.

Just send a digital photo of your window coverings in .jpg format to photocontest@factorydirectdrapes.com now through July 31st.

The photos will be judged by the decorative quality of the window treatment (to include window treatments, rods, valances, and other accessories), surrounding décor, and in part by overall photographic and artistic quality.

Legal Terms

By submitting your photo, all participants agree to the following terms:

You are entering this contest at your own risk. You must agree that, regardless of the outcome, you will not challenge the results of the Factory Drapes Photography Contest (the "Contest"). You agree that Factory Drapes need not return to you any images you submit and that Factory Drapes may, in its sole discretion, terminate this contest without any liability to you.

You agree that the images you submit may be used by Factory Drapes in a printed publication, on a Web site, in a slideshow and screensaver, or in any other media, and may be copied and displayed in any country, provided that you are afforded appropriate attribution to you as the photographer. You may not revoke this permission to allow Factory Drapes to use your images. Although you are agreeing to allow Factory Drapes to use your images, you remain the owner of your images and may also use them in any manner you choose.

You promise that you are at least 18 years of age, you are not part of the operational team of CGAP or an immediate family member of such a person.

You promise that the photographs you submit

(a) are your own work;

(c) have not been previously published.

You promise that persons depicted in the photographs (except outdoor crowd scenes) have given you permission for the use of their image in your photograph. We ask for this promise because we want you to be respectful of the persons you photograph and considerate of their sensitivities concerning the use of their image in your photograph.

You promise that your photograph accurately reflects the subject matter and scene as it appeared, and that it has not been digitally altered beyond standard optimization (removal of dust, cropping, adjustments to color and contrast, etc).

You agree that Factory Drapes does not need to pay you for your images, whether you win a prize or not
