This winter we were delighted to put on a ‘Win a Drone’ photo competition for Rainbow Shade customers.
Customers were invited to submit photos of any impressive installations they had manufactured or installed in anything from the Rainbow Shade range, from shade cloth to PVC and Ziptrak® installations. We hoped we all might get to see what happens to a few of our products once they leave dispatch, but the response far outweighed our expectations.
Entries from Whangamata to Christchurch were received and our judge had the challenging task of selecting from over 100 images submitted.
The four runner up images were:
Judge’s comments: “This image nicely captures the oasis that has been created – the eye is drawn to the light but protective canopy above, then down to the clear crisp screens, and into the inviting living space with its various lines, textures and natural colours.”
Judge’s comments: “The simple composition of this shot perfectly demonstrates the enhancements of the screen and how they are attached to house itself and how they enhance the space, creating a protected outside area usable in any weather conditions.”
Judge’s comments: “The main feature to appeal in this shot is the colour contrast. The school in the background gives it context and clearly shows both the quality and function of the structures.”
Judge’s comments: “The composition of this shot brings the eye into the space nicely showing how the addition of the screens enhances the space. It also highlights the curved shape of the screens that keeps with the arching of the vines again enhancing the space.”
Congratulations for the winning image:
“Juhasz – Opoutere, Coromandel”, by Tony and the team at Covered, Whangamata.
Product choice: Extreme 32 heavy duty shade fabric in Black and Charcoal.
Judges’ comments: This shot beautifully shows the construction both of the structure itself and the materials of the cloth. Compositionally it leads the eye along the structure and also directs you to the filtering effect of the clothe to the sun shining through it.
What a job, well done!
Images were judged on composition, quality and how well they showed off the end product. Guest judge photographer Tony Speakman, a local expert in outdoor living and real estate photography, said the quality of entrants was very high. “There were some really nice shots in the pool, it was certainly hard to nail it down to five”, he said.
The winner received a DJI Mavic Mini drone (valued at $669) so they can have fun taking some aerial shots and hopefully impress their future customers.
We would like to thank all of the entrants and congratulate everyone on the calibre of work that is being pumped out around the country. Very impressive!
