Accentra Credit Union’s 2023 Calendar Photo Contest
Calling all member photographers!
We want to feature YOUR photos in our Accentra Credit Union calendar, which will be available for all members in our branches free of charge later this year. Accentra Credit Union employees will select the 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 for the calendar cover and that photographer will receive a $50 deposit into the Accentra account of their choice. All of the photographers who have a photo featured in the calendar will receive an Accentra prize.
The theme for our 2023 calendar is 'The Simple Life'. This is your chance to show us, and your fellow members, the images you think best represent living the simple life. The deadline for submitting your photos is Friday, September 16th. There is a limit of 5 photo entries per photographer. The winning photographs will be announced on Wednesday, September 28th. 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 2023 calendar as our Facebook Fan Favorite.
Entries will be selected based on quality, creativity, meeting the calendar theme, and overall impression.
Photos must be taken by an amateur photographer, an individual who does not make money off their photography.
Photos that include copyrighted materials - logos, images, etc. are not eligible.
Photos must be taken within our service area - Dodge, Fillmore, Freeborn, Houston, Mower, Olmsted, Steele, and Winona counties. We ask that photos taken outside of the eight counties not be submitted.
