Armacell is calling all contractors to enter Armacell’s Annual ArmaFlex Photo Contest.

We know you take pride in your work, now show the industry what you can do. Just send us clear, high-quality photos of your best jobs featuring Armaflex insulation. 

Photos will be judged on: 

  • Interesting application or job 
  • Skillfulness of installation techniques 
  • Artistic angle or composition of the photo 
  • Creative depiction of AP Armaflex tube, sheet or roll insulation materials 

All photos must include Armaflex insulation. If the Armaflex insulation is painted or covered by jacketing, please identify the location in your supplied description. Other insulation types may be included in the job, but the focus of the photo should be the equipment insulated with closed-cell, fiber free Armaflex. 

Prizes: The winners will receive a VISA gift card in the amount shown made out to the entrant. 

  • First place: $500 
  • Second place: $200 
  • Third place: $100

VISA gift cards are good for USA residents only. Only winners from the USA are eligible for the prizes.

Winners will be announced January 15, 2019. Each winning entry will be featured on Armacell’s website and promoted through our news, press and social media channels. Show off your insulation and photography skills and be recognized by your peers! 

Photos will be judged by a panel of Armacell marketing and applications experts. The applications specialists judge the skill, and marketing judges the aesthetics.
