Is this a photo worthy of being part of the 2009 Photo-A-Day Calendar?


I’ve had some requests for a 2009 Photo-A-Day Calendar and I would like to do one. You may recall that I created a 2008 Photo-A-Day Calendar and gave the proceeds to a friend whose husband is battling cancer. This year the charity I will be raising money for is the Relay For Life. Allison is a team leader for our local church and I’ll be walking that weekend in June with her.

I need your help in picking the 12 best photos from Photo-A-Day 2008 to be put into the calendar. I have almost 335 photos to choose from.

I would like to offer a free Photo-A-Day 2009 Calendar to one lucky reader.

Here’s how to enter.

Go to this Flickr Set: Photo-A-Day 2008.

I’ll be picking one entry at Random (using Random.org) to receive a free 2009 Photo-A-Day Calendar.

I’ll be taking suggestions until November 29th, I’ll make the calendar the 30th and it will be available for sale December 1st.

Updated – Calendars will be made tonight and hopefully for sale then too.

    Hmm. To be honest, I like color photos better, so I would have to vote no on this one for the calendar.

    I have a bazillion emails to get through then I’ll be back to work on entering this contest!

    He and his family are still very much in need of prayers.

    awesome thing to be doing for Relay for Life. I am a team captain and I am coming up with ideas for fundraisers. How does the making of a calendar work?

  13. MLDina says:

    What a great idea, Ben! Photography is a hobby of mine, too. Here are some of my favorite choices for your calendar:




  14. Drew says:

    Last year I used Lulu to create the calendars and then people could order their own. I am going to look into a few options for the calendar this year, might use Lulu again. Way to go being a team leader!

  15. Drew says:

    Thanks very much Dina,
    I didn’t know the Market Leverage folks checked out my blog. Thanks very much for contributing to helping me pick my 12 for the calendar. Thanks for entering my contest too.
