Photo competition for Cooplers.
Show off your skills and win 100 swiss francs!
We want to spotlight you at work
Over the last couple of months, Coople has started to look a little different. You may have already noticed, we’ve transitioned to using black and white visuals and our Coople pink is not as prominent. As our brand evolves, we want to highlight the expertise of our flexible employees and emphasise their versatility, talent, and commitment at work. The most authentic way to do this is to use real photos of real Cooplers.
Between the 8th October – 1st November, we encourage you to send in photos showcasing yourself and your skills at work. A public vote from 8th October – 8th November will determine three winning photos. We will reward the three Cooplers who gather the most votes with 100 swiss francs each!
In order to maximise your chances of winning, be sure to read our competition information carefully, so you know exactly what kind of photos we want to see. Best of luck – we’ll keep our fingers crossed for you!
Competition information - photo guidelines
Our aim is to obtain authentic photos showcasing real Cooplers at work. We will use these photos to show our clients your quality of work, reliability and commitment. There is no better proof of a quality, flexible workforce than our own dedicated Cooplers.
Please see below for important advice, tips, and examples of the kind of photos we want to see and how you can improve your chances of winning the prize money.
1. Think about what you like to do or what you are good at.
Which tasks motivate you? What have your teammates and supervisors praised you for? What skills are you particularly proud of? This can be anything from fast typing, heavy lifting, clever loading of a truck, or mixing the best cocktails!
2. Think about how you can show this skill in a photo.
Do you need a box, a van, suitable work clothes or maybe even a friend that represents “the customer”? Plan ahead and imagine what the finished photo will look like.
3. Decide on a place to take the photo.
Your skills and (of course) you, are the star of the photo and both must be clearly visible and in focus. Do you have enough light? Is the focus clearly on you and your work? Is the background distracting?
4. Get photographed.
Ask your friend to take a picture of you or use the self-timer. It’s best to take a couple of shots at once so that you can choose the best photo.
This improves your chances:
- Photo with good resolution (please do not shrink/compress)
- Photo in landscape/portrait format
- Photo in .jpg or .png, format
- Photo in black/white or colour
- The photo shows you authentically, focused and committed at work
- Have someone take a picture of you or use the self-timer
- Make sure that your skills/motivation stands out
- Submit your photo as soon as possible to increase your chances of getting many votes
- Get extra votes for your photo by inviting friends/family to vote
This worsens your chances:
- Photo from the Internet
- Photo that is too dark or overexposed
- Photo with poor resolution, blurred or pixelated
- Portrait picture of you smiling into the camera (we want to highlight your skills at work)
- Exaggerated or unrealistic scenarios
- Photo with applied filters or recognisable image editing (be authentic)
Not keen on the spotlight? Don’t worry, this photo competition is for camera shy people, too. Since we are focusing on your skills/workplace activities, your face does not have to be the main focus. For example, you can turn away slightly from the camera or move your face into the background, with the correct use of light/shadow/focus. Just be sure to showcase your skills!
Take part in our photo competition for Cooplers
Each submitted photo will first be checked by Coople and only after approval will it be displayed in the public gallery for voting. If uploaded pictures show something other than you at work, we reserve the right to withhold the submitted photo and exclude it from the competition.
From 8th October to 8th November you will have the opportunity to view the photos of all participants and vote for your favourite (by clicking on “Vote”). You can vote once a day and of course, invite your friends and family to vote as well.
