2018 Blue Ridge Parkway
Calendar Photo Contest

The Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation and RaysWeather.Com are partnering yet again to produce a 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar.

RaysWeather.Com has sponsored a photo contest and a calendar featuring photos from our forecast region for the past twelve years. As has been the case for the past four year, the 2018 Calendar Photo Contest solicits photographs the entire length of the Blue Ridge Parkway (from Waynesboro VA to Cherokee NC and everything in between). A significant portion of the profit from the calendars will be donated to the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation.

The photo contest is open for submissions until June 1, 2017. We're looking for the best, most unique photos capturing the beauty, activities, and essence of the Blue Ridge Parkway 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 Parkway Foundation and RaysWeather.Com to determine a group of Finalists. These Finalists will be posted on the contest pages for one week to solicit your votes (in early June). Based on the voting, the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation 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 by mid-June.

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 (July will be a FloydFest photo) will be selected for inclusion in the 2018 Calendar; each of these photographers will receive a $100 RaysMarketplace.com gift certificate.

"Best of the Rest" and "Cameo" Photos

In the 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar, we will continue to use many photos that were not monthly contest winners. We again use many smaller photos in each calendar pages. Last year, the calendar included about 50 photos total. These "best of the rest" and "cameo" photos allow us to include more of the great photography we receive.
