Standout Photo Contest

How cool would it be for greats of the music industry to see your AV setup featuring your beautiful Standout Designs media console? It could happen. Here’s how...

In a big departure for our little company, Standout Designs will run a full page ad in the 2017 Billboard Music Awards Program! The program gets distributed to Billboard Music Awards attendees and to members of The Recording Academy (think GRAMMY Awards). It also gets published online.

So, we are after a great "real world" photo of a current Standout Designs media console for use in our BMA program ad. The 2017 Billboard Music Awards show is on May 21 in Las Vegas.



You must be 18 years or older and own a standard build of a current Standout Designs Haven EX, Horizon EX, Majestic, EX or Norwalk media console to enter. Not sure? We are happy to verify what you own — just contact us. Void where prohibited.


One winner will have his/her photo considered for use in our 2017 Billboard Music Awards Program ad and will receive a $150 Amazon eGift Card. Standout Designs reserves the right to decide the final ad content. Two runner-ups will each receive a $50 Amazon eGift Card.


Enter by Wednesday, April 5, 2017. Winners will be contacted on Wednesday, April 12, 2017.


Here are some tips to help you take great photos of your room. Or check out this informative article: "How to Photograph Interiors like a Professional".

  • Set your camera to the highest resolution possible.
  • Make sure there is plenty of light — the more natural light the better.
  • Make sure your console and TV are free of dust and smudges (no furniture polish though).
  • Your TV should be OFF but you may want your gear to be ON.
  • Shoot from an attractive angle that incorporates some other furnishings.
  • Experiment with and without a flash.
  • Make sure the photo is sharp and in focus!
