Attention Professional and Recreational Photographers

Gloucester Rotary 2020 Raffle Calendar Submissions


A 12-month Cape Ann photo raffle calendar that will be sold through the Gloucester Rotary Club.  A raffle ticket will be attached to each calendar and a winning number will be chosen each week in 2020.  All profits from the calendar sales will go to the Gloucester Rotary Club’s efforts to raise money that supports the many community and international activities in which the club is involved.

2020 Calendar Theme: Beautiful Spots on Cape Ann

Landscapes, seascapes, harbor scenes, sunrises/sunsets, boats, wildlife, etc.  Most importantly we want very high quality digital photos that show the beauty of Cape Ann.  As we will be featuring one photo per month, we need images from each season:  winter, spring, summer and fall.  Photographs from Gloucester, Rockport, Essex and Manchester will be accepted.  A selection committee from the Rotary Club will make the choices.  

Technical specifications & rules:

Horizontal, color, minimum size 12 x 8” digital .jpg files at 300 dpi, maximum size 12 mb. In your entry submission email, title and identify where the photos were shot (e.g., Smith Cove) and, if possible, the  month they were created.  Photo title must be in your file name (example: kayakers-smith cove-may.jpg).  Make sure to give your name and contact info in the email with your entries, including your mailing address, phone number and email address. Because of the large number of entries we expect, entries that do not meet the minimum size requirements and/or photographers who fail to provide the required entry info will be automatically rejected. In addition, no copyright watermarks are to be embedded in the photos or they will be disqualified.
Photographers who submit photos understand that we may need to slightly crop or downsize the winning entries for printing purposes and accept this. We reserve the right to use low res files of winning entries to help advertising the sale of the calendar. Winning entrants will have the photo title or location and photographers name printed under the photo.

How many?

Maximum 3 entries per person

$50 will be paid for each winning entry chosen for the calendar, as well as photo credit.
