Finlayson Sweater Photo Contest

I’d love to buy your very best Finlayson Sweater photos!

Finlayson Sweater | Thread Theory

I’ve never been happy with the photo shoot that we did for our Finlayson Sweater pattern and am constantly impressed by the pictures I see popping up of the Finlayson on blogs and Instagram…so I thought that I might invite you to send me your favourite Finlayson photo shoot to feature as the main pattern photos on our website!  Believe me, Matt will be incredibly grateful to be spared the pain of modelling for a fresh Finlayson photo shoot (he detests modelling).

Here is how the contest works:

  1. Email me at info@threadtheory.ca with a link or your attached photos by March 2nd.  This gives you two weeks to sew a fresh Finlayson or take pictures of an existing Finlayson.  I’ll announce the winners on the blog that day!  All photo shoots must include a minimum of three (3) photos of the same Finlayson Sweater.
  2. Two winners will be selected – one featuring the collared Variation 1 and the other featuring the hooded Variation 2.  The sweaters must be sewn as per the pattern instructions to be considered (no modifications).  Each winner will receive $100 CAD for their photo shoot (which I can e-transfer to you upon announcing the winners and after I have contacted you to ensure I have the right email address to transfer your prize).
  3. Photos must be available for me to purchase in high resolution.  Once purchased, Thread Theory would have the right to edit and use the photos that we purchase as our own.
  4. Keep in mind our Thread Theory aesthetic when taking your photos!  We love natural backgrounds featuring woodland, grassland and mountains.  We love when men smile for photos and act as natural as they can (a difficult task when modelling for a photo shoot!).  Our website images are portrait orientation but we like to have a landscape option as well so we can use at least one photo for our front page banner.

And lastly, a 3rd prize of a $50 credit to our Thread Theory shop will be given for our favourite photo featured on Instagram using #finlaysonsweater!  This 3rd winner will be notified directly through Instagram.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with!  Thanks for joining in the fun!

Please ask any questions via the blog comments…you will want to be certain you are clear of the contest rules before you go to all the work of sewing and photographing!

  2. Hi! my brother’s dream is to be a sewest’s model 🙂

    My brother is taller than your block. Is it okay to add length in case it’s needed?

    • I’m sorry I never got back to you on this, Roni! I didn’t see your comment until today when I went to write the post about the winner! I see you submitted some awesome Finlaysons regardless – I’m glad you did!

  3. I love the idea!! And I asked my husband and he said : “as long as my face is not showing…” 😦

    I’ll see if I can convince him xD

  4. Morgan, This is awesome! Kudos to you to think about ‘buying’ the pictures and not just using the pics from sewers for free advertisement. I love your business ethics! Goodluck with the contest!
