The Second Annual Summer Living Photo Contest!

The Summer Living Photo Contest is Back!

Our first annual Summer Living Photo Contest received more than 100 entries – and showed us what a creative and talented bunch of homeowners we have here at Charter Homes! Now, we’re bringing the contest back for a second year – and giving away THREE Starbucks gift cards (a favorite of our Facebook fans!) to three talented Charter homeowners/photographers.

How to Enter:

Send us your photos of your Charter Home decked out for the summer – or of YOU and your family enjoying your Charter Home or neighborhood this summer!

To enter our contest, post your photos on our Facebook Wall here. There’s no limit to the number of photos you can submit! Or, if you don’t have a Facebook account, you can email your photos tocontests@charterhomes.comEntries are due by 5:00 p.m. on July 1, 2011.

How We’ll Select the Winning Photos:

You spoke, and we listened… This year, we’re selecting a winner based on a combination of our feedback AND yours! The week after the photo contest ends, we’ll choose a limited number of “finalist photos” based on a vote by our employees here at Charter Homes. We’ll share the finalists with you, and the winning three will be selected by the number of “likes” they receive on Facebook.

To get you inspired, here are our finalist photos from the 2010 Summer Living Photo Contest, starting with Sandy King’s winning photo! See the rest here.

The contest starts today… Ready, set, POST!
