Keep Taking Photos

2017 Calendar Contest


     There are still a few 2016 Cavendish Community Calendars left for sale, but now it is time to start thinking about the 2017 Calendar Contest.

     Each year CCCA sponsors a contest to find the twelve best photographs of Cavendish; it’s environment, and its peoples to grace the pages of the next year’s calendar. In the spring contestants submit photos and the community has a chance to vote for the best pictures. Then a panel of judges awards prizes to the best overall pictures, and twelve are selected one for each month in the calendar.

     Will your photo be printed next year? It will be only if you first submit it to the contest. For rules and the entry form please go to the CCCA website and look for the Calendar Contest Application under the Community Calendar tab. Entry forms will also be available at Crows Bakery on Depot St. in Proctorsville.

     Photos can be submitted beginning May 1st and will be accepted until May 31stFor more information call Robin Timko at 226-7736.

Deadline extended to June 15th


The 2016 photo contest was another success with several unique pictures receiving awards.  In addition to the calendar contest, all submissions are scrutinized by a panel of judges who determine winners based on theme, color and composition.  There were three categories for judging and the winners are:

Each winner receives a prize from the CCCA.
