Morgan Community College (MCC) announces its annual calendar photo contest and invites photographers of all levels to participate. Interested individuals are encouraged to submit photographs that reflect the unique charm and essence of northeast Colorado. The submission deadline is Thursday, October 26, at 5:00 p.m.
Last year’s winning photograph, “Byers Skyscrapers,” featured a grain elevator and grain bins along Highway 40 West where the plains of northeast Colorado meet the Rocky Mountains. This stunning image was the creation of Carl Steitz of Strasburg, showcasing his artistic vision and connection to the community.
To ensure the highest quality print in the upcoming calendar, entries must be in landscape orientation and of high resolution. Cellphone images will not be accepted, as they do not meet the rigorous printing specifications necessary for the calendar’s production. Each entrant is allowed to submit up to ten photographs, all of which should authentically portray the character of northeast Colorado. For more information and to submit photos, visit www.MorganCC.edu/calendar-contest.
“We’re excited to see the region through the lenses of our talented community members,” stated MCC Director of Communications, Marketing, and Recruitment, Ariella Gonzales-Vondy. “This contest celebrates the photographer’s skills and the beauty of northeast Colorado.”
The winning entry will be featured on the 2024 MCC calendar and distributed by the college to the surrounding communities at no cost during the month of December; no monetary prize will be awarded.
