Win a $20,000 Farm Shed 2018 Competition
Throughout 2018 entrants had the chance to fill in an entry form at Field Days across all of Australia! We had a whopping 5062 entries, take a look to see who was the lucky winner!!
At the end of 2018, Now Buildings, in partnership with BlueScope Lysaght, CDA and Allplates, gave away a $20,000 shed. This was such a great experience for us as it allowed us to get to know lots of people through our stall at various field days throughout 2018.
We announced our intention to run the competition back in April 2018 and made entering exclusively available to those who visited the Now Buildings site at the field days we attended. Because of this, we made a point of attending as many field days as possible and clocked up a whopping 22 field days around Australia in 2018 alone! We went to Karoonda Farm Fair, Kapunda Farm Fair, East Gippsland Field Days, Agfest Field Days Tasmania, Riverina Field Days, Mildura Field Days, Toowoomba CRT Farmfest, Norco Primex, Ag-Grow Emerald, Mudgee Small Farm Field Days, Sheepvention, Eyre Peninsula Field Days, Agquip, Dowerin Machinery Field Day, Newdegate Machinery Field Days, Henty Machinery Field Days, Elmore Field Days, Wandin Silvan Field Days, Murrumbateman Field Days, Australian National Field Days (ANFD) and Proag Field Days.
With 22 field days under our belt, we actually had a lot of entries. At our final count, there were 5061, that’s roughly 230 entries per field day. Every single entry was hand written by someone at one of our sites and placed in our competition barrel. We then sent them to our head office to get put in the even larger competition barrel to wait for the rest of the entries.
We drew the lucky winner at the Allplates distribution centre on the Gold Coast on the 19th of November, 2019. All 5061 entries were added to a large pallet cage to be drawn from. We had to get creative when it came to figuring out how to mix the entries up and luckily our Salesman James had the brilliant idea of using a leaf blower! This worked a treat and once the entries were sufficiently ‘tumbled’ the winner was drawn by a representative from BlueScope Lysaght.
The lucky winner had entered our competition at the Elmore Field Days and lived in Bairnsdale, Victoria. At first they didn’t answer our phone call as they didn’t recognise the phone number, but luckily we were able to get in touch the next day. It was lovely to hear their excitement at having found out they had just won a brand new shed!
The competition allowed our winner to choose a shed kit from our current brochure up to the value of $20,000 or put the $20,000 toward a shed of higher value. They decided to go with a custom size enclosed shed and are having it built now.
We were genuinely rooting for everyone who entered the competition and it was an amazing experience to make a phone call to the lucky winner and tell them they had just won a brand new shed! This was an awesome experience for us at Now Buildings and we can’t wait to do something like this again.
