Aerial's Autumn Contest
Happy Fall, Y'all! For the month of September, Aerial Innovations decided to try something new with our audience. We’ve mentioned this before, but our company hosts monthly photo contests within the office; it’s a fun way to spice up the office with some healthy competition.
This isn’t the first time Aerial Innovations has incorporated an outside party into our photo contests. Last July—thanks to Diane French who was the public affairs officer at the time— we were approved to get on the Coast Guard base in Clearwater. A small group of people were selected to take time out of their days and judge our photo contest photographs featuring patriotism. To read more, visit “USCG Members Judge Our Photo Contest.”
Unlike the previous time where we incorporated non-Aerial-Innovations staff in our photo contests to judge, we decided to turn the tables. Instead of letting you be the judge, we decided to allow our Aerial Innovations family—those of you who follow us via Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn—to participate in the fun! YOU share YOUR photos! We chose the theme “Aerial’s Autumn,” and what did Autumn mean to you?
We started off small, giving away an Aerial Innovations T-shirt, a print of the winner’s photo, and some handwritten notes of our thanks. We didn’t know how many people would be interested in the contest, and those who entered would probably enjoy these gifts! Our winner, Jason Prystupa, did!
Prystupa submitted his photograph of his great uncle Wendell at Lake Cumberland. Lake Cumberland is an alleged fishing haven in Clinton County, Kentucky; this is located on the Tennessee-Kentucky border. Fishing was a favorite pastime of Prystupa, visiting his family every summer and visiting the lake. Great Uncle Wendell was a praised “hillbilly fisherman extraordinaire.” Prystupa’s favorite memories of summer and early fall are here with his uncle and his family.
We love and appreciate our Aerial Innovations family and the fact that you feel comfortable enough to share these special moments with us! Let us know at email@example.com if you’d like to participate in any upcoming photo contests, or if you have any ideas!
A concern we’ve realized was that those who participated with their Instagram account on private were unable to share their photo submissions with us, and had to directly message us instead! Make sure that we’re able to view your photographs!
As always, we hope you have a terrific day and thank you all so much for participating in #AerialsAutumn!
