Rees Harps Picture Perfect Photo (& Video) Contest
Welcome to the Rees Harps Picture Perfect Photo (& Video) Contest!
How much do you love playing your Rees harp? How do you feel when you are playing it? We are getting ready to spruce-up our Rees Harps website and we want to add media that really expresses how our harps feel in the hands of all of you. Send us your most compelling and unique photos and videos to enter our Rees Harps Picture Perfect Photo (& Video) Contest. We are giving away some pretty great prizes including a Special Edition Fullsicle™ Harp, a Fishman Loudbox Amplifier and more! Excited yet?!? (Us too!)
Here’s a BIG hint to let you know exactly what we are looking for and why. Like our new Harpsicle® Harps website, we want the next revision of our Rees Harps website to show our harps in the hands and lives of those who are actually playing them. Often folks send us photos where they appear to be really serious. That’s fine, but we suspect that your harp takes you to all kinds of other feelings. Most especially, we are on a quest to find those moments of either joy or bliss. We are looking for photos and videos that show the emotions we actually see when you are playing gigs or just for yourself. That’s the moment - the etherial whisper - we are trying to convey to those who have yet to meet our harps. No one knows that feeling better than you and that is why we are calling upon you to help us find that captured spark.
Here’s an example of the kind of feel we are trying to capture. We LOVE how unique and immersive these shots are. They captivate us because we know just how Maria and Jana feel.
So here are the rules…
You can submit up to three high-resolution videos and up to five high-resolution photos. Each photo and video will be considered as a separate entry so you can win more than one prize! Video should not exceed the length of one song or composition.
The harp featured must be one of the Rees Concert Line harps: Aberdeen Meadows Harp, Mariposa Harp, Shaylee Meadows Harp, Morgan Meghan Harp or a Morgan Meadows Harp. Of course, we really want to receive entries from all those Rees double harpers out there too! Older Rees Concert Line models which feature extraordinary ornamentation will be considered as well. We cannot accept photos or videos which feature harps from our Harpsicle® Harps line in this contest but do hang on to that media because we have plans for you too!
The harp and/or the harper must be prominently featured.
Photos can be candid or staged - and we really do love those candid shots!
In videos we need to be able to clearly hear the harp though at some harp gigs we know there will be times when audience response may briefly drown out the harp. (And if so, good job!)
File formats accepted - all must be high-resolution: JPEG, PNG, GIF, MP4, MOV, or API.
Contest dates - submissions will be accepted between 4 March 2019 and 31 March 2019. (Submission instructions are below.) Facebook voting for the Grand Prize winner will take place from 8 April 2019 at 12 AM EDT to 15 April 2019 at 11:59 PM EDT.
Void where prohibited.
Though the voting for the Grand Prize Winner will take place on our Rees Harps Facebook page (see below for details) this promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by or associated with, Facebook.
Prizes (this is the best part, am I right!)
Grand Prize - a Special Edition Fullsicle™ Harp (in your choice of walnut or cherry), a Fishman Loudbox Rechargable Mini Amplifier (these sound in-cred-i-ble!!!), a built-in pick-up with preamp, a 15’ Asterope cable and your choice of our Deluxe Harp Straps! Imagine all the cool gigs you can play with your amplified harp and without nearby electrical power. The world is your oyster! This package is valued at $1791.95.

What We Will Do With Your Submission(s)
This is going to be hard, but we will pick several submissions to be eligible for the Grand Prize. They can be either photos or videos. We will select these based upon what we think best expresses the feeling of owning a Rees Harp to a prospective customer. This is a subjective decision on our part and by submitting an entry to this contest, you are agreeing to accept our decisions. After we have narrowed entries down to a group of potential Grand Prize winners, we will post that whole group to the Rees Harps page on Facebook on 8 April 2019 at 12 AM EDT. At that point we will get out of the way and ask anyone and everyone who wants to vote to make themselves heard, by clicking “Like”. Voting will close at 11:59 PM EDT on 15 April 2019. So, if you are in the Grand Prize group, “Share” like mad! Convince all your friends and minions to “Share” and “Like”. If you want to stay apprised of updates and all the postings about winners, be sure to Like our Rees Harps page too!
After the Grand Prize voting has concluded, the Rees Harps team will award the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes. And…don’t tell anyone but Ellie may have something special for her favorite submission too!
