In June we hosted our first photo contest. It all started when were searching the internet for good photos for our new website. We were shocked by what we saw. There were hundreds of pictures of staged flights or male models holding an ear of corn, but nothing that represented our customers. Its not that our customers couldn't be easily mistaken for models, its that there is an honesty and work-ethic that is associated with our customers that can't be faked. Dismayed, we turned to our Facebook to ask for help and our customers stepped up to the place. We got some amazing pictures. After a few days, we wondered what would happen if we threw some money behind it, thus the Photo-Contest was born.
Pictures started rolling in and we were amazed at what we saw. People would share their favorite pics and others would like their favorites. We contacted some vendor-friends of ours and before we knew it, we had $17,000 worth of prizes.
Three lucky winners cashed-in big. Brandt Bottoms from AR won first place with 575 likes and received approximately $8100 in prizes. Gracie Jordan from OK won second place with 515 likes and nearly $5000 in prizes. Janice Everett from AR won third place and $4400 in prizes. The Chem-Man crew also picked the top 12 photos to be their facebook profile picture thoughout the next year.
