AGS Stainless DeckingSelfie Contest

Additional Awards Include: Most Creative Selfie, Best-Looking Deck and Please-Help-My-Deck-AGS!

AGS Stainless wants you to whip out your cell phone, strike a pose on your backyard deck and share your best #DeckingSelfie to win up to a $5,000 cable railing package just in time for summer! Beginning today, AGS Stainless – the well-revered manufacturer of custom-made, prefabricated stainless steel railing systems, is launching a creative and fun photo contest where anyone can win by simply taking a ‘selfie’ on their deck, then uploading it onto the official #DeckingSelfie Photo Contest page using the hash-tag #DeckingSelfie.

The entry with the most “votes” on their photo by July 7th, 2014, receives a custom-made stainless steel cable railing package directly from AGS Stainless – up to a $5,000 retail value. Additional awards will be given, as judged by AGS Stainless #DeckingSelfie experts, for:

  •     Best-Looking Deck
  •     Most Creative Selfie
  •     Please-Help-My-Deck-AGS

The proliferation of the ‘selfie’ – a type of self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a phone, digital camera or tablet for the purpose of uploading onto social media sites – from its rise in popularity after becoming the 2013 “Word of the Year” by Oxford English Dictionary to a celebrity-studded selfie orchestrated by Ellen DeGeneres during the 86th Academy Awards broadcast that became the most retweeted photo of all-time, is now helping improve someone’s summer decking season with a beautiful new railing system compliments of AGS Stainless.

“Everyone enjoys a good selfie…some more than others, so if you’ve got a camera and a deck – now is the perfect time to send us your best one!” grins Kevin T. Harris, Director of Sales & Marketing at AGS Stainless. “Our hope is this contest is easy and fun to enter while showcasing some great-looking decks, decks that could use some love or just some very creative #DeckingSelfies – whatever to capture attention and the most votes.”

Here’s how the #DeckingSelfie Photo Contest works:

1. Post your photo to the #DeckingSelfie Facebook App, or upload your photo easily to the #DeckingSelfie Contest Page.

2. Invite friends, family and colleagues to “vote” for your entry – and more importantly – share and comment on your photo.

3. Sit back and watch your #DeckingSelfie photo gain popularity and the recognition it deserves.

4. The #DeckingSelfie photo with the most “votes” by July 7th, 2014, receives a custom-made stainless steel cable railing package directly from AGS Stainless – up to a $5,000 retail value.
