Dream Design Contest 2015

Dream Design Contest 2015

If you are a Plain & Fancy dealer enter your photos to win a getaway for two. If you are not a dealer with us you can still see all the great photos submitted by scrolling to the bottom of this post!

We are looking for great photography! We are asking our dealers to submit photos to us of the innovative designs that you have. (If you are not a Plain & Fancy dealer you are not eligible to enter the contest, but you can view all the photography we receive right here in this blogpost. Just scroll to the bottom of the page). This could lead to being published in a magazine or recognized for your work on our web and social media sites.


  • If you have before and after shots please submit them. We love before and after photos.
  • Take more than one photo. We need lots of shots of your project to tell its story on our website. Get that "money" shot and then several photos of cool details and highlights of the project. Of course if you only have one photo please submit it. It could be useful to us or a magazine looking for a specific type of image.


We have asked the Virginia Tech School of Design students to be our judges. They will be asked to pick a Grand Prize winner and also a 2nd and 3rd place winner.


See the list below for instructions on how to submit your photography. Hi resolution images are preferred. You may enter as many projects as you like, but please submit each project as one entry. Here is how it will work:

  • Submit your photographs with your name, business name and Plain & Fancy Contract Number to me, Shane Achey, via email.
  • All entries must be submitted to me prior to 12:00 pm EST on November 25, 2015. Note; no entries submitted after November 25th will be accepted.
  • I will group all entries and submit them to Virginia Tech by December 1, 2015.
  • All entries will remain the property of Plain & Fancy.
  • On December 20th, 2015 we will annouce all of the winners.

All entries may be used by Plain & Fancy in print, digital and social marketing materials. All images may be used on the Plain & Fancy website. Entries will not be returned.
