Instagram Photo Challenge for the 2017 Calendar

Our 2017 Calendar photo contest is underway and will be running through the end of September. If you haven’t yet submitted your photos now is the time to do it!

Every year our Calendar Photo Contest is one way we say thanks to all of the people who help make us Seattle’s premier, locally owned and operated commercial print shop. Prizes will be awarded and winners will be announced, plus we are giving away free calendars to all!

Use hashtag #olympuscalendar

Between now and the end of September we invite all of our clients, partners, friends and employees to participate. Simply tag any of your Instagram photos with #olympuscalendar. When the summer is over we will review all of the images and select over 100 of them to appear in a beautiful large format wall calendar that will be available for free to anyone who wants one (while supplies last!).


After the winning photos are selected we will notify everyone who has one or more photos that made the calendar. Our staff will vote to decide the best photo in each category (categories listed below). The winning photographers will be able to choose from a selection of $25 gift cards. The remaining photographers will receive recognition on our website and social media announcements.


By tagging your photo with #olympuscalendar you are granting Olympus Press non-exclusive, single use rights to print up to 4000 calendars featuring any of the photos you have tagged. Tag only photos that you own, and tag as many photos as you like. This year the entry limit is 75 photos per person. This year’s categories will be The Ocean / Food & Drinks / Flowers / Urban / Summer Outdoors / Shapes & Lines / Northwest Fall / Travel! / Selfies / Pets / Landscapes & Wanderlust / Avant-garde.  Submitting photos that would work in multiple categories increases your chances to win. Olympus Press does not profit from the production of this calendar and will not use your photos for any other use except for possible email promotion of next year’s challenge.
