WELLSBORO, PA – C&N’s annual calendar photo contest has concluded with Erica Shirley of Painted Post, NY earning the grand prize spot.
Each spring, C&N hosts their annual calendar photo contest for local amateur photographers. The winning photographs are featured in their upcoming calendar. In August, a panel of C&N employees selected 12 photos for the 2022 Wall Calendar, with all employees voting on the grand prize photo. “As always, there was a lot of competition. We received so many great submissions it made it difficult for our committee to decide on only 12. We really appreciate all the local photographers who decided to enter, and we look forward to all the submissions for 2023,” said Charity Frantz, Marketing Director at C&N.
The winning photographers are awarded the first copies of the new calendar highlighting their winning photos, a $100 cash prize and other goodies. The grand prize winner also receives the coveted cover sport on the calendar, a large, framed copy of their photo and a $300 cash prize.
