The Lincs Skies Calendar and Photo Competition ran for the first time in 2017 and raised a total of £4747 for the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance. I’m delighted to announce that Elsoms Seeds have very kindly agreed to sponsor the calendar again in 2018. All proceeds will again go to the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance.
The 2018 calendars, made up from winners of the Lincs Skies Photo Competition, will be available from the 21st October online and in the stockists listed below the week after.
Last year I was unable to accept entries for any photographs sent in that were less than 300dpi due to the printing requirement of the A3 calendar. This meant that the many smartphone photographers who wanted to enter had to be turned away. Therefore, following feedback from last year, we’re creating two 2018 calendars – an A3 one and an A4 one.
I’m so grateful to all the sponsors of the Lincs Skies Calendars this year. Sponsorship enables me to get the calendars printed in order to sell in aid of the Air Ambulance and without their support, the project would not be possible.
This year the sponsors are as follows:
Main Sponsor: Elsoms Seeds Ltd
Shops that have agreed to sell the calendars so far in 2017:
We are very grateful to these stores – please show your support to them by paying them a visit!
The 2017 Lincs Skies Calendar was an A3 wall calendar made up from 12 winning entries of a photo competition held on the @LincsSkies Twitter page during October 2016. All proceeds from the calendar went to the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.
I am delighted to announce that the Lincs Skies Calendar raised £4747.00 – all donated to the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance. The 2017 calendar is now completely sold out.
The competition was very kindly judged by Rob Hammond of Lincs FM, Nigel Chapman of the Spalding Voice newspaper, Sally Crawford of the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance and Robin Wood of Elsoms Seeds Ltd, the main sponsor of the calendar.
There were over 60 entries. Congratulations to the photographers that took these 12 winning photographs:
