Below are several questions that we get asked the most often. If you have a questions that is not listed below, please feel free to contact us or visit our Facebook page.
When does the contest start?
Although you may send us your photos at any time, the contest does not official start until after Remembrance Day. We honor those that gave so much to defend our freedom. Most decorators do not put their lights on until December 1st as well so voting typically starts in the first week of December. Once the voting has started, no new contestants will be added.
How do I submit photos?
You do not. To make sure every contestant has the same chance to win, we will send out a photographer to take the pictures. Same photographer takes all the pictures. By notifying us you would like to enter, we will send you an email arranging a time for the photographer to stop by and take the photos.
What about privacy issues with the photos?
We will do our best to remove any identifiable information such as vehicle license plates or home numbers, but we do not accept liability for any identifying features in the photo. It is your responsibility to prepare your home prior to the photographer arriving.
Do I retain rights to the photos?
No. To submit the photos to the contest you must sign a release. This grants the rights of the photos to us for the sake of the contest and its promotion. This is required so the photos can be posted on the website and social media channels.
When are the winners announced?
The contest is over December 20th, 2019 and the winners will be contacted and prizes distributed shortly afterwards. If the winner can not be contacted or does not respond by January 1 2020, they forfeit all rights to any prize. It will be left to the sole discretion of those that manage the contest whether or not another winner will be chosen in their place.
