For the second year, GLOCK, Inc. is hosting a photo contest that provides a unique opportunity for devout GLOCK owners and gun enthusiasts to display their passion for GLOCK firearms – as well as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have their photo appear in the official GLOCK 2012 Calendar.
Fans can begin submitting their photos immediately via email to [email protected], with the subject line, “GLOCK Calendar Photo.” Photos will be judged based on emotional response and artistic merit.
In addition, contestants are encouraged to become “fans” of the official GLOCK, Inc. Facebook fan page at www.facebook.com/GLOCKinc, where they can review contest details and view “editor’s pick” submissions throughout the duration of the contest.
The Facebook fan page provides a destination where GLOCK owners can interact with Team GLOCK members and other GLOCK enthusiasts, view original GLOCK photos, videos and other GLOCK-related content, and be among the first to learn about GLOCK promotional and sponsorship opportunities.
“We at GLOCK see this unique campaign as a way to put the spotlight on our devoted customers, showcasing the unique level of passion and loyalty that has been the basis of our success here in the U.S.,” said Gary Fletcher, Vice President at GLOCK, Inc. “GLOCK is very proud to continue to be the chosen firearm for over 65% of the US Law Enforcement market. It’s GLOCK’s reliability and durability that have made GLOCK pistols famous; and our loyal customers who have helped us to remain on top.”
The contest runs until 11:59 p.m. on July 31st, and entrants may only submit one photo per person. The photo must be sent as a .JPG file and be at least 300 dpi in size. There will be one photo selected for inclusion in the calendar, representing one month. The winning submitter will receive a prize pack of GLOCK-branded merchandise, as well as have their photo appear in the calendar.
Submissions must be in compliance with the rules and guidelines; otherwise, they will not be considered for inclusion. GLOCK prides itself on being “Safe. Simple. Fast.” In this instance, a “safe” photo must remain within the standard firearms safety guidelines, such as no finger on the trigger, no guns pointing at the camera, and all individuals shooting must be wearing both ear and eye protection. Winners will be announced in September, 2011.
