The Town of Hempstead is pleased to announce its 19th Annual Calendar Photo Contest for the 2017 Town of Hempstead Complimentary Calendar. Judges will choose from the submitted photographs that best depict a Town of Hempstead scene, event, park, or other happening. At least one photograph will be chosen for each month and many smaller photos will also appear within the calendar.
“Our complimentary calendar depicts the beauty and wonder of Hempstead Town’s vibrant parks, breathtaking beaches and everything the Town of Hempstead has to offer, including Long Island’s pristine south shore,” stated Supervisor Santino. “I encourage all Town of Hempstead residents who are eager photographers to submit their photographs to be considered for inclusion in next year’s calendar.”
The following criteria will apply to photograph submissions:
1. The contest is ONLY open to Town of Hempstead residents (including Town of Hempstead employees) and ALL photographs must be taken in the Town of Hempstead (see note below).
4. Photographs must be accompanied by a descriptive phrase indicating the photographer, address and phone number, the approximate month/season in which the photo was taken; the location and/or event and the individual(s) (first and last name(s)) in the photograph. The photographer is responsible for submitting the correct spelling of the names of the individuals in the photographs, as well as notifying the subjects that their likeness may be reproduced in the Town of Hempstead 2017 calendar. We will NOT print the names of those in the photograph, but we do need them.
There will be at least 12 "winners" whose photos will appear as large photos and many other “winners” whose photos will appear as smaller photos in the 2017 Town of Hempstead Calendar.
“I look forward to seeing the tremendous talent displayed in the 2017 Town of Hempstead calendar, which will be distributed to all 243,000 homes in the Town of Hempstead,” concluded Supervisor Santino. “I also look forward to presenting all “winners” with an award certificate recognizing them for their contribution to a magnificent Town calendar.”
