2023 Photo Contest

Due to the success of our Photo Calendar Contest in previous years, we’re going to give it another go this year!

We had some great entries last time, and hope to do even better this year. Get those cameras out early and get snapping! This year’s deadline will be October 31, 2023.

We ask that you submit your photographs as digital JPEG files (most common file types used by digital cameras), in as high a resolution as you can provide. Also, the preferable format for photos is “landscape”, or widescreen format, commonly used in most calendars.

Entries can be emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
