Kendra: Hey everyone! Welcome back to The Coop with Meyer Hatchery – where we talk all things poultry in hopes of inspiring crazy chicken keepers and educating future flock owners. Each week we like to take a Meyer Moment to cover relevant happenings.
Jeff: Let’s take a Meyer Moment to talk about the moment you and your chickens have been waiting for….the annual Meyer Hatchery Catalog Cover Contest! Enter your best photos now to land the front cover of the Meyer Hatchery 2021 Poultry Catalog.
Photographs can contain poultry, eggs, homesteads, and even people.
Did you know Kendra not only is a podcast host but designed last year’s catalog? She’s back at it again this year and has a few insider tips for you!
Kendra: It truly is an exciting time of year for all of us at Meyer Hatchery and we hope you’ll join in on the fun too. Here are some insider tips exclusively for our podcast listeners:
First, remember the catalog is our annual showcase of poultry. It’s ideal to choose a poultry breed Meyer Hatchery offers. For example, we don’t offer Old English Game Bantams so we probably wouldn’t choose that breed for our cover.
Next, be sure to check out our catalog cover submission page linked below. Along with photos of our past covers, it clearly outlines entry rules, and ways to enter! You really want to make sure you’re taking a high quality, vertical photo that fit our dimensions requested. There’s nothing worse than finding the perfect shot, only to learn our customers took it with their phone and didn’t change their settings.
Lastly, get creative! Not only do we choose a cover photo, but also select a few to feature as full-page spreads throughout the catalog. I love seeing lifestyle shots on these pages as well as photos hyper-focused on poultry types like ducks, geese or even guineas – breeds that may often be overlooked.
With that, I wish you the best of luck and can’t wait to see all of your entries!
Jeff: Like Kendra mentioned, photos can be submitted through the catalog cover contest page linked below. You can also submit entries through Instagram, Facebook or Twitter by using the hashtag #MHCoverChick2021. All of the specifics of how to enter on these platforms can be found below.
The only photo requirement is that it must be at least 300dpi, 2550 pixels by 3300 pixels, and in a vertical orientation.
Oh, and did we mention there are prizes! The Grand Prize winner will be featured on the cover of the 2021 Meyer Hatchery Catalog and will receive a $100 Meyer Hatchery Gift Certificate.
Honorable mentions displayed as full-page spreads, within the 2021 Catalog will receive a $50 Meyer Hatchery Gift Certificate. Any other customer photos used in the catalog will receive Meyer Hatchery swag.
The 2021 Catalog Cover Contest is officially open and taking submissions until August 31st.
We hope you find these insider tips helpful in showcasing your favorite flock member for a chance to be featured in Meyer Hatchery’s annual poultry catalog. And that’s your weekly moment with Meyer.
Enjoy the rest of your week and as always, thank you for listening to The Coop!
