Accentra Credit Union’s 2018 Calendar Photo Contest
Calling all member photographers!
For the fourth year, we want to feature YOUR photos in our 2018 Accentra Credit Union calendar, which will be available for all members in our branches free of charge later this year. A panel of Accentra Credit Union employee judges will select 11 photos to be featured in the calendar and an additional photo will be determined by our Facebook fans. One grand prize photo will be selected from the 12 finalists for the calendar cover and that photographer will receive a $50 deposit into the Accentra account of their choice. All of the photographers that have a photo featured in the calendar will receive an Accentra prize. Entries will be selected based on quality, creativity, meeting the calendar theme, and overall impression.
The theme of this year's calendar is 'My Favorite Place'. Whether it’s a local business, a landmark you admire, or the view from your backyard, we hope you’ll share it with us and your fellow members. Photos must be taken within our service area - Freeborn, Mower, Olmsted and Winona counties. The deadline for submitting your photos is Friday, August 25th. There is a limit of 5 photo entries per photographer. Only one prize will be awarded per person, even if more than one photo submission is included in the calendar. The winning photographs will be announced on Monday, September 4th. All credit union members, including employees who are credit union members, are eligible to enter their photographs.
Facebook Fan Favorite: We will post all of the photo submissions to our Accentra Facebook page as we receive them. Members and non-members will be invited to vote for their favorite picture with a like. The photo that receives the most likes will be included in the 2018 calendar as our Facebook Fan Favorite.
To enter, email your photo(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, contact information, and a description of your submission, including the location where the photograph was taken. Photos must be print resolution to at least 8"x10" (at least 300 dpi) to be considered. Horizontal images work best due to the calendar's layout. If your photo files are too large to email you may submit them via a CD or flash drive at either branch location.
Accentra is looking for photographs of your favorite place within our four county service area: Freeborn, Mower, Olmsted, and Winona.

Contest officials reserve the right, at their discretion, to reject any photograph that does not conform to regulations, is deemed to be objectionable, or which is of an inappropriate subject matter.
