EmpireCovers' Made in America Photo Contest

Celebrate the birthday of our great country by participating in our Made in American photo contest!  Here at EmpireCovers, we specialize in engineering covers that will protect your vehicle from the elements.  Our American Armor and Titan Desert Shield automotive covers surpass all necessary qualifications to keep your vehicle damage-free.  Those covers, along with our Rust-Oleum® Grill Covers, are manufactured entirely in the U.S.A.  This holiday we're offering you the chance to become the proud owner of one of these covers!

What does this contest entail?

The contest is between you and fellow EmpireCovers fans alike. Here's how you can enter for your chance to win one of our American-made automotive and grill covers:

  • Post a picture of your car/truck/SUV/motorcycle/grill decked out in U.S.A paraphernalia to our Facebook wall, tweet a picture to our Twitter feed, or post to Instagram and tag our Instagram account.  
  • No matter which of the two social media sites you choose to post to, make sure that along with your picture you use the hashtag "#July4thEmpireCovers" in order for us to see it.
  • Along with your picture, briefly tell us why you believe you should win one of our American-made covers.
  • If you follow the above guidelines, you will be officially entered in the running to win an automotive cover and grill cover from EmpireCovers!   

What covers can I win?

The American Armor cover strongly protects your vehicle against UV rays and rain.  It is 100% waterproof and, unlike most other covers, has an ultra-soft micro-fiber inner lining that won't let any scratches or damage occur to your vehicle's exterior. This cover is also very breathable, in order to prevent the growth of mold and mildew.  The Titan Desert Shield cover is made from a layer of high-tech DuPont Tyvek® and is perfect for those living in hot, sunny climates.  The material is incredibly UV resistant and is able to keep your vehicle's temperature up to 30 degrees cooler.  The cover also excels in protecting your paint from fading.  

Our Rust-Oleum® Grill Covers have a fast acting VCI (Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor) film in the middle layer that prevents the buildup of rust or corrosion and effectively helps extend the life of your grill.  The other two layers of this cover are made entirely from a durable, waterproof material that successfully keeps your grill dry.  Our Rust-Oleum® Grill Covers are also made entirely in the U.S.A.

The winner of this contest will get his/her choice of one of the two aforementioned automotive covers and a grill cover. 

When does this contest take place?
