Calendar photo contest begins

By The Staff

Mount Evans Hospice is looking for photographs of the mountain community’s scenery, wildlife and landmarks to include in the 2009 Seasons of Our Mountains Community Calendar.

Amateur and professional photographers are encouraged to submit entries for this popular calendar, sponsored by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Evergreen National Bank and Evergreen Newspapers.

Thirteen photographs will be selected by a community vote — one to represent each month of the year and one to use as the cover image. Photographers are asked to submit entries as unmounted color 8-by-10 glossy prints from Evergreen, Conifer and the surrounding communities. Film prints must have the negative included, and only 35 mm or larger format film is acceptable. Digital photos must be 300 dpi at an 8-by-10 size and include a copy of the file on CD in .jpg or .tif format. Black-and-white, vertical, date-stamped, or digitally manipulated images will not be considered. Each person is limited to five submissions.

Entry forms will be available at area merchants, the Mount Evans Hospice offices, Coldwell Banker offices, and will be printed in future issues of the Canyon Courier, High Timber Times and Clear Creek Courant. The deadline for submissions is Aug. 25.

Proceeds of calendar sales will help Mount Evans care for underinsured or uninsured patients as well as support numerous services provided by Mount Evans, including grief counseling, transportation for patients to medical appointments, respite care for family caregivers, and Camp Comfort, a bereavement camp for children. To request an entry form, call 303-674-6400.
