Calendar Photo Contest

Calling All Photographers

The Town of Frederick is continuing the 'Built on What Matters' Calendar and wants to highlight your photos that represent Frederick!  The 2022 calendar will continue the theme of 'What Matters to You?' and will showcase local photographers in a full-sized, 12-month calendar that will be sent to Frederick residents and businesses. The deadline to submit photos has passed. We look forward to seeing your submissions for the 2023 calendar. 

Photographers are invited to either compose a new photo or submit one that’s been taken previously. Photos must be taken in Frederick and photographers must explain why the photo depicts what matters to them. We love to see photos of town events, art pieces, hidden gems in Frederick and all seasons represented! Keep in mind our brand promise below for inspiration as well.

Voting is open for the People's Choice picture. Vote for your favorite photo before Thursday, October 21 at 12 pm to ensure your vote counts. 

Please submit photos with our Brand Promise in mind:

We believe in rolling up our sleeves not just for ourselves, but for others.
We believe in playing outside until the stars flicker on and protecting the hallowed ground of childhood.
We believe in a lifelong commitment to actions as good as our intentions.
We believe in the power of our voices and the obligation of our hearts to form a strong foundation.
We believe we’re onto something that’s worth all we can give it.
Here, the life we dream of is ours to create.

Photo Categories and Judging

Entries are judged by the Arts Commission, the Mayor and Town Board, and Town staff based on the composition of the photo and how well it represents the Frederick brand. There will also be a People’s Choice category that will be voted on by the public using the Town’s website photo gallery. 

Photos selected as Mayor's Choice, Board of Trustees Choice, Staff Choice, Arts Commission Choice and People's Choice will be awarded $100.
