VOTING: We will host a Facebook voting contest on the Focus Marketing Group page to determine the winner beginning April 18th until April 25th. The winners will be announced before May 1st! The winning images will be used as the FMG cover photo and winners will receive #focusswag for their efforts.

NOTE: By submitting your photo to this contest, you are giving permission for Focus Marketing Group to use your image in forthcoming promotional materials prepared by FMG.

When selecting your images for the contest, remember these four things —

  1. Your subject should be in focus, not grainy or pixelated
  2. Outdoor, natural light is best.
  3. Avoid distracting shadows. You can really disguise something beautiful if you’re not careful.
  4. Tell a story.
