Seasons of Our Mountains Calendar Tips & FAQs


  • Keep the calendar’s theme in mind:
        your images should show off our mountains, our wildlife and the way seasons are reflected in them
  • Edit your photos judiciously:
        Images must look natural to qualify – pasted image parts, oversaturated colors or obvious manipulation
        will disqualify your entry
  • Give thought to a good title:
        any words that express the feeling, the idea, the humor, or anything else about your photo will help it stand out
  • Summer and Spring get the most competition:
        you will have a better chance of winning with a great Fall or Winter entry
  • Make your images Colorful:
        By and large, colorful images get more votes and look better on a calendar page
        dull or muted photographs may be excellent images but don’t tend to do well in this application
  • Don’t submit multiple photos of the same scene:
        have the confidence to pick the best one and use the other entries for different photos
  • This is primarily a nature calendar, but that said, sometimes man-made objects enhance the photo
  • Avoid submitting  pictures of Evergreen Lake House unless it is a unique photo, this is the most common subject we see submitted


    • We require at least 2400px wide for acceptable entries but 3000px is better and sufficient
    • This is a HORIZONTAL calendar, please don’t submit vertical images. Confirm your aspect ratio: the 12″ x 9″ finished printing size of the calendar means all images will be cropped to a 4 x 3 aspect – if it is not cropped correctly, we will crop to fit
    • Don’t add your watermark or signature to your image: all voting is anonymous so we’ll block out any watermark or disqualify your image if we can’t remove it
    • If you have questions or issues please send an email to
