2022 Blue Ridge
Calendar Photo Contest

The Blue Ridge Conservancy and RaysWeather.Com are partnering again to produce the 2022 Blue Ridge Calendar.

RaysWeather.Com has sponsored a photo contest and a calendar featuring photos from our forecast region for the past 18 years. Last year's calendar was a huge success--we sold out in early December. The only problem was that so many people who wanted calendars were not able to get them. We'll print more this year!

As was the case last year, the 2022 Blue Ridge Calendar Photo Contest solicits photographs anywhere in the Southern Appalachians (SW Virginia to SW North Carolina) and Foothills. A portion of the profit from the calendars will be donated to the Blue Ridge Conservancy. Last year, we donated $2000 from the calendar proceeds.

The photo contest is open for submissions until June 21, 2021. We're looking for the best, most unique photos capturing the beauty, activities, and essence of the Southern Appalachians in all seasons of the year.

Contest Criteria and Process

At the end of the submission period, photos will be screened by the Blue Ridge Conservancy and RaysWeather.Com to determine a group of Finalists. These Finalists will be posted on the contest pages for at least one week to solicit your votes (in late June). Based on the voting, the Blue Ridge Conservancy and RaysWeather.Com will make final decisions regarding winners based on technical quality, uniqueness, and producing a calendar of highest quality with appropriate diversity of geography, activities, scenes, flora, fauna, etc. Because of the calendar layout, winning photos will be printed 12" wide and 10" tall; so, photos must be appropriate for printing in that size and orientation. We will announce winners in early July. In addition to the full-page month winners, we also include many "Best of the Rest" and cameo photos in the calendar. Last year, we included about 50 photos in the calendar.

Prizes

The Grand Prize Winner (selected for the calendar cover) will receive a $200 RaysMarketplace.com gift certificate and a $200 cash prize. Additionally, three photos per season will be selected for inclusion in the 2022 Calendar (plus photos for November and December of 2021 so the calendar can be used before 2022 begins); each of these photographers will receive a $100 RaysMarketplace.Com gift certificate. "Best of the Rest" and cameo photo winners will receive prizes as well.
