How to WIN

The winning photos will be judged on the following criteria:

iSeekBlinds Product 

The product featured must be a custom-made iSeekBlinds product -  blinds, curtains or plantation shutters. 

Inspiration & Style

Make your blinds/curtains/shutters the feature of your photo. Be as creative and stylish as you like. The better styled the photo, the higher the chance of winning. 

Photo Quality 

There is no set limit for the size of photos you can upload. Photos must be of a high enough quality to feature on the website and social channels, so send the largest size you have! 

Your DIY experience

Share your DIY experience and thoughts on your iSeekBinds product.  The length of your story is not important – write a paragraph or more if you want to, up to 350 words. We'd love to hear your story! And don't forget to tell us what fabrics and colours you used in your blinds and curtains. 

Home visit from Michael Gubby (Owner/Founder of iSeekBlinds) 
 

As part of the prize for The Judge's Choice 1st, 2nd and Runner-up winners, Michael Gubby (Owner/Founder of iSeekBlinds) will visit you in your home (at a mutually suitable time) to discuss and document your DIY story. We love to share the real-life results our customers have achieved, so having the opportunity to chat with you, take some photos and video footage as well would be just amazing (if you don't wish to personally appear in any videos that is totally fine!). Please discuss this with us if you have any concerns. Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us.

Tips for taking photos

Taking photos of windows is tricky due to the light. Use your smartphone or SLR camera to assist with preparing your shot for the best possible light effect & exposure settings. 

Make your blinds/curtains/plantation shutters the hero of your photo.

You can take photos in both landscape and square orientation, though landscape allows you to capture more of your room.

When styling your room, make sure it is clean and tidy, ie. put the washing & dishes away :-)
