How do I enter?

 

  1. Plan your photo shoot now!
    Obtain pool owner permission and schedule early, especially when hiring a pro photographer. Remember landscaping and other distinguishing visual features will be taken into consideration for entry in Cover of the Month (not for entry into 2020 Call for Entries), so plan your photo shoot for after the landscaping has been completed.
  2. Complete the requirements for photo releases.
    Photo release form provided here (photocopies accepted).
  3. Showcase the pool and cover in the best possible way.
    We recommend using a high-quality camera or hire a professional to take high-resolution photos of your projects.
  4. Send completed entry form, photos and signed photo release.
    Multiple images of the same pool/property counts as one entry. Submit signed release form or email coverpools-sweepstakes@fluidra.com

 

GUIDELINES FOR PHOTOGRAPHING POOLS AND COVER-POOLS POOL COVERS:

  • Digital images should be a minimum of 3600 pixels by 2700 pixels. Please do not edit the photo file.
  • Ensure that the cover and the surrounding deck areas are clean.
  • Clear away any toys, debris, hoses, pumps, etc. If the deck area has an umbrella, open it for the photo.  Include attractive or distinctive yard, deck, and home features if they complement the pool area.
  • Photograph during early morning or late afternoon for diffused light. Avoid direct sunlight on the subject.
  • Place cover at ¼ to ½ covered (water should show ½ to ¾ of pool length). Also take shots fully covered and fully uncovered.
  • Take additional shots including other special pool features (such as water or fire features, lighting, etc.).
  • Shoot from an angle above the pool (such as ladder height). Take both landscape and portrait oriented shots.
  • The entire pool should be visible. Shoot from several angles if possible.
  • We appreciate any additional application or product detail shots such as close-up of the mechanism or lid.
