Maybe dad will upgrade his fishing gear to better enable him to catch dinner – or just update his casual attire so he doesn’t embarrass the family at a favorite seafood restaurant. He might need foul weather gear that doesn’t leak or a lifejacket that doesn’t look like it survived World War II. He might even want to spend it on supplies to finish up that boat project he started last season. Whether the dad in your life is incredibly makeover-worthy or just a little too frugal, we want to hear why he deserves to win new gear from West Marine.
Contest Dates: May 11–June 19, 2015. The winner will be announced the week after Father’s Day.
Entry Process: Photos should be posted on Instagram, tagged to West Marine and include the hashtags #westmarine #deckoutdad. Captions should include info on why the dad is deserving and/or needing a makeover.
Judging Criteria: Photos can be funny or sentimental, and preference will be given to those taken on or near the water. They could be on a boat, walking along the beach or at a waterside restaurant. Or, even at West Marine!
Winner Notification: The winning entrant will be asked to visit a West Marine store to pick up their $500 gift card, and must agree to a brief photo shoot that shows them shopping. (What he buys is up to him.) He must also agree to use of the photos (before and after) for West Marine promotional purposes.
