Photo Contest

We love seeing what our customers do with their Near and Deer faux taxidermy wall mounts. Send us your best photo of how you’ve displayed your faux taxidermy in your home and be entered in our monthly Instagram giveaway contest.


Official Contest Rules

Effective June 12, 2017

Photos to send: Send a high quality photo of a Near and Deer product displayed in your home.  It can be in its place on display or in a creative location (i.e. with a pet, in nature, or in your hands).  Photos of products themselves that are not in place or are not creative (up to the discretion of Near and Deer) may not be selected. Select photos that have good lighting so the product is clearly visible. 

If you send multiple photos of the same product, we will choose the best one to post.

If you purchase multiple items, you can send one photo per item (excluding wall hooks and arrows, as these are typically sold as sets of multiple pieces).


How to send: You can send us your photos through a variety of ways.

1. Instagram - Post your photo on instagram and tag us in it (do not simply use a hashtag, as it could get missed.  Use the tag feature. 

2. Facebook - Send us a facebook message with your photo or post it to our page.

3. Email - Drop us a line at


When we post: In order to not bombard our followers with too many photos, we space out our instagram posts out.  This means that your photo may not be posted immediately.  It will be entered in the queue and posted in the order in which it was received.  


How to win: When we post your photo, we will use a unique hashtag.  Only posts made by Near and Deer using the unique hashtag will be eligible to win.  The photo with the most likes at the end of the month wins!  it's that easy.

We encourage promotion of your photo.  Share it on your page and tell your followers to like yours to increase your chances of winning.  Do not cheat!  I repeat, do not cheat.  Do not buy likes to promote your photo, as it will be disqualified. 


Prize: The winner will be refunded for their purchase (up to $100) or may receive an item from our site that is of comparable value to the item in the winning photo. 


Use of Photos:  By submitting images for the contest, you are granting Near and Deer the irrevocable, assignable, worldwide right and license to use, alter and publish these images for Near and Deer’s publications and worldwide internet website, and for all other purposes reasonably related to promotion of Near and Deer or its products, in any manner and in any medium now known or later developed, without the need for your prior approval and without compensation to you.
