The choice to hire a photographer or take the photos yourself is yours to make. If you do take your own photos, use a good quality digital camera and ensure that your camera settings comply with the specifications for images. Professional photography is encouraged, as these photos will represent your company in the presentation at the Gala, online, and in the Ontario Masonry Design Awards Magazine, as appropriate to your ranking in the competition. They should be provided in the same quality context as your company marketing materials. If you do hire a professional photographer, ensure that you provide them with the specifications for the images.
Poor quality pictures may result in your project being disqualified.
No entries will be accepted after the posted deadlines.
