Q. What are the image file requirements?
A. JPEG images only, please! Image length with a 1500 pixel length, set to 300 dpi, Hi-Res or larger files sizes preferred.
Q. Can I submit an image of my home that was shot by a professional?
A. Yes. You must have documented consent from your photographer that can be provided upon request. Contest prizes will be awarded to the contest applicant. Photos with watermarks are subject to disqualification.
Q. I am an industry professional. Can I submit images of my client's spaces?
A. Certainly! If you choose to submit a customer's photograph please have proper permissions from your client. If we need to inquire about lighting in the project, please be sure to have access to your or their Purchase Order.
Q. The light in my room looks like a Barn Light Electric product, but I'm not sure. Can I still submit?
A. Sorry, but no. Only spaces that feature Barn Light Electric products will be eligible for the contest. If there is question about the light fixture in the space, we reserve the right to hold the entry while we verify the product's Purchase Order.
Q. How can I take a better picture of my space? What kind of image are you looking for?
A. We are looking for fresh spaces from all regioins in all kinds of styles. While we want our lights to be a focal point in these images, you put a lot of thought and effot into your design and we want to see it all--from floor to ceiling. Classic, straight forward angles (both vertical and horizontal) are best. Shooting your images in natural lighting with your camera mounted on a solid surface like a tripod or counter often removes the need to use an artificial flash, which disturbs natural, ambient light.
