For those of you who have visited our new Chesterfield location since its grand opening in October of last year, you've seen the future look for all Alpine Shop stores. The images which span the walls include those our own customers have taken as they've explored the world.
This spring, all three Alpine Shop locations will take part in the fun as our Kirkwood and Columbia shops put up frames to showcase their customer's adventures.
Simply put, we don’t want stock photos of models from California in our store. We want images of you, our Alpine Shop customers.
We will be choosing as many as 25 images for each of our stores, so please indicate which store (or stores) you shop at when you submit the images. If your photo is selected, you'll receive a gift certificate for $25! From all the photos selected, we will select first, second and third prize winners for each store and a final grand prize winner chosen from those contest winners.
If you have a great photo of you or your family on an adventure anywhere throughout the world, please e-mail a high-resolution version of the shot to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also include the names of everyone in the shot, the photographer and the specific location (as close as possible) where the photo was taken.
A Few Notes & Fine Prints...
Please understand that these images will need to be increased in size to 24" tall or 48" wide (and for front window photos up to 72" tall). Mobile phone photos will simply not make the grade. For those of you with some experience with photography, your photos should still be over 80 dpi when height is set (not enlarged) to at least 24" tall. Only a total of five photos may be submitted by each family. If you have questions, please contact the e-mail address above.
Please do not send single e-mails with over a total of 3 mb of files. If you a number of high-res photos you would like to send, please contact us at the e-mail above so we can give you our ftp access.
Images will be placed in our stores during the middle of May.
NOTE: $25 gift certificates will be given for total number of photos selected. (E.g. Family "A" submits 5 photos from three different e-mail addresses and 3 photos are selected for the walls. Family "A" would recieve three (3) $25 gift certificates.
