Would you like to see your photo, drawing or painting in the Eastern Moors & Longshaw calendar for 2018?
The Eastern Moors Partnership has been producing a popular calendar for the past three years, full of photographs taken by their talented team of volunteers. This year we thought we would try something different and invite the public to take part in our calendar competition by sending in their photos, drawings and paintings.
The calendar will feature a portrait format image for the front page and is expected to include a landscape format image for each month of the year. We hope that we will end up with a fabulous calendar with a mixture of photographs, drawings and paintings, which reflect the calendar's theme:
Captivating raw beauty, wild and open landscape, rich in wildlife,
shaped by natural and cultural history, fought for and cherished by many.
Who can enter?
Photographers of all ages may enter. Drawings and paintings from those aged 16 years and under only.
What can you enter?
Either a photograph, drawing or painting of the Eastern Moors, Longshaw, Burbage, Houndkirk or Hathersage Moors. The image needs to reflect this year’s theme.
We will accept a maximum of two images per entrant.
Drawings and paintings will be scanned and re-sized to fit the A4 style calendar.
Photographs must be high resolution images of no smaller than 2551 pixels x 1789 pixels (landscape format), and for the front cover no smaller than 2551 pixels x 3579 pixels (portrait format). You will be asked to submit low resolution versions of these images in the first instance, and if your image is selected for inclusion in the calendar, you will be asked to submit a high resolution version.
The criteria for judging will be based on the creativity of the image, quality of the image, relevance of the image to the calendar’s theme, the image’s ability to create, along with other chosen images, a cohesive and sale-able calendar.
