Lowe’s names photo search contest winner

Lowe’s has announced Susan Sutherland as its "Find Inspiration and Paint It" photo search contest winner. Her photo, a crimson sunset shot called "Evening Red,” was chosen from more than 1,400 entries and among 25 finalists.

As part of the contest, which helped promote the retailer's Valspar line of paint, Sutherland will receive a $25,000 room makeover. Her walls will be painted with Valspar Ultra Premium and Signature Colors Paints to match a "color theme" based on her winning photograph.

As part of the contest, customers uploaded photos of a "cherished place, memory from nature or object as inspiration." Lowe's customers voted on the photos online.
