Program rescheduled!

Submission window for 2021 Calendar opens February 3rd!  Note: deadline extended until March 9th!

It is hard to believe, but once again it is time to be thinking about a new national park calendar.  The Photo Society has a great tradition of designing beautiful calendars for the Park, assembled entirely using images from CVPS members.  It is a great way to contribute to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, and it is a unique opportunity to show your photographic work to the broader community.  I hope many of you will submit images in the next month so that we can make another great calendar for 2021!

Please look through your archives and submit up to 20 images that will:

·           Show the beauty and natural diversity of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park,

·           Show scenes and activities within the park that are different from what has been incorporated in the calendar in the past couple of years,

·           Show the park in a variety of seasons—we need images for winter, spring, summer and fall.

Images can be submitted from February 3 through March 9.  Please look through the submission requirements to get the information you need to make sure your images meet the needs of the calendar.  If you have questions about the calendar that are not answered in the document, send them to calendar@cvps.org.

Thanks in advance for your contributions to the 2021 CVNP calendar,

Dave Longfellow, President, CVPS

Join the Cuyahoga Valley Photo Society for a creative workshop with photographer and artist Eileen Rafferty to expand your photographic skills and vision.
