2021 Photo Contest Winners

January 14, 2022

Nationwide Industries™ is proud to announce the winners of the 2021 Photo Contest.

As more and more homeowners continue expanding their outdoor areas, they also seek the comfort of the security and privacy hardware for gate and fencing products bring to their project. The top three home improvement projects from 2019 to 2020 were outdoor projects with decks, porches, and fences, taking the number one spot at 21 percent. The outlook is bright for fencing in the U.S., where the size of the market is projected to increase to $12 billion by 2027 (it was $8.3 billion in 2019).

Since fence and gate hardware is a low contact installation project, coupled with the outdoor trends, it is not surprising the demand for gate and fencing hardware continues to rise. Fence professionals, landscape architects, and anyone associated with the fencing industry had a busy 2021. 

It was the perfect time for Nationwide Industries™ to launch its first fence and gate hardware photo contest in 2021. Project photos are an excellent way for fence and gate pros to attract new business. As such, we asked current and new customers to submit their photos of projects using Nationwide Industries’ product and enter our first photo contest.

We received more than 80 great fence and gate installation photos, and we thank you all for sharing your beautiful projects with us. In our eyes, you’re all winners. 

Our judges had a tough job, yet in the end, their votes tallied the top three photo contest entries detailed below. Congratulations!

The 2021 Contest Winner: Shoreline Vinyl Systems. They installed the Ornamag Magnetic Gate Latch with Key Lock, prominently displayed on an ornamental fence in Seaford, Delaware. The Ornamag gate latch can accommodate up to a 2-inch fence post and is reversible for right-handed or left-handed use. 

1st Place – Alexis Harned – Shoreline Vinyl Systems

Our second-place winner, R & S Fence of Dillsburg, Pennsylvania, shows off an up-close image of the best-selling Mixed Profile Design Hinge on a vinyl fence.

Thank you to all who participated in our inaugural 2021 Photo Contest. We were delighted to see all the project photos created with Nationwide Industries’ product. For those who didn’t get a chance to submit a project in 2021, stay tuned for the 2022 photo contest announcement. We look forward to seeing your future projects with Nationwide Industries fence and gate hardware.
