Calendar Photo Contest

Virtual 2022 Calendar Photo Contest

HERE IS HOW IT WORKS: You must enter your photos electronically. Please email your photos to Robin Smith at robinsmith@optonline.net AND Kenny Adamsbaum at kadamsbaum@aol.com no later than April 24th. With the exception of photo submissions, all other standing contest rules will apply.

Electronic voting will be open from May 1st through May 3rd. Click here to view the entries. Click here to access the ballot. You may vote for up to three photos. Winners will be announced on May 8th. This process will not become the norm as we will return to our traditional photo contest submissions and voting for the future.
