Sudbury Arts Council is planning ahead for 2024 by inviting the community to submit photographic images for a 2024 desk calendar.

This is the second time the SAC has been involved in Journal Printing's annual complimentary desk calendar. 

“We had lots of submissions last year from mostly amateur photographers as well as a few from professionals. No one is excluded from entering,” said SAC board member Don Johnston. “That's the beauty of the contest.”

This year's theme is Iconic Sudbury.

There is always room for debate about what Sudburians consider iconic. Included would be: the Big Nickel, the Super Stack, the watertower, the Silver Bullet, the Flour Mill Silos, Capreol trains, the AY Jackson lookout, the Sudbury Wolves, Science North, the Art Gallery of Sudbury, etc.

Photographers are invited to explore beyond this list. Many would argue that even poutine and Beef and Bird's Porketta Bingo are iconic. It's all in the eye of the beholder.

Participants may enter two photos maximum, and all submissions must be horizontal (landscape format). The images should be high res jpegs and belong to the person submitting.

“We'd love to see submissions from all four seasons for the 2024 calendar,” Johnston said.

Those selected for the calendar will receive a cash honorarium for use of their photo as well as five copies of the calendar.

The deadline for submissions is June 1, 2023. Send submissions to [email protected].
