Capture Arkansas 2012 Calendar Launch


A New Capture Arkansas Publication

Get your cameras ready and your voting fingers warmed up -- it's time for the next Capture Arkansas publication! The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette is thrilled to announce the Capture Arkansas 2012 Calendar. Building on the success of the Capture Arkansas 2010 book, we are excited to open submissions and voting for a new way to showcase Arkansas photography: a beautiful wall calendar.

What is it?

The best of Arkansas, as decided by local photographers and local voters, wrapped in a fine-art calendar for your wall. Top-scoring photos and editors picks will be featured in the calendar, which will span the 2012 year.

How many photos will be featured?

It's hard to say for sure, but we plan to feature one photo for each month in the calendar, plus a handful of smaller photos in each month.

Which photos are eligible?

If you'd like your photos to be eligible for publication in the Capture Arkansas 2012 Calendar, visit the Capture Arkansas 2012 Calendar info page, then click "opt in." Once you've opted in, all of your photos (whether uploaded in the past or in the future) will be eligible for the calendar.

Are there prizes?

Yes! Bedford Camera & Video has graciously supplied the following prizes:

  • Calendar cover winner - Bedford Prize Package: Canon EOS Rebel T1i Body, Sigma AF 18-50mm 2.8 lens, Promaster UV filter, Promaster 4GB SD Card and a Promaster L-300 Case
  • Each month's featured photo - Photography class from Bedford Camera & Video: 4-week introduction to DSLR

What's the timeline?

There are three two key dates:

  • August 25, 2011 is the last day for new photo submissions and voting to be considered for Capture Arkansas 2012 Calendar.
  • October 21, 2011 is when we expect the Capture Arkansas 2012 Calendar to be released.

Now, get out there and capture our beautiful state in photography that spans all seasons, then opt-in, upload your photos and vote to shape the Capture Arkansas 2012 Calendar!
