Criteria:Each entry is judged by the AQUA team according to two criteria: aesthetics and clarity of information. Simply put, do you have a unique, attractive truck that highlights pertinent information in a way that can be quickly understood? If so, we want to see it.
Prize:All winners will appear in the August 2019 issue of AQUA.
Tips for Your Entry:1. Tell us about your vehicle. In our entry form, we ask participants to tell us about the vehicle and what makes it interesting. What was the design process like? What were your goals with the design? Was your vehicle customized in any way to make your job easier? Does it turn heads in your community? Have any crazy stories? Adding these details helps your entry stand out.
2. Send us quality images. We’re looking for large, hi-res photos of your vehicle. (No need to hire a photographer, though — you can take some nice smartphone images and send them with your entry.) We suggest waiting for nice weather and taking a photo outdoors for proper lighting and clarity. Note: We prefer actual photographs, not renderings.

When customers say goodbye in the pool and spa industry, there are plenty of reasons to assign...
