Member Photo Calendar

Flathead Electric Cooperative produces an annual calendar featuring photos of our local area taken by Co-op members. The calendar will be available for our members at the Co-op offices starting in November.

Photos submitted should depict wildlife, scenery, people, activities or anything that represents our unique lifestyle in our special corner of Northwest Montana. 14 photos will be selected and featured in next year’s calendar. Members selected to be featured in the calendar will receive $25, and their name will be published in the calendar.

Photo Calendar Submissions

Photo submission requirements:

We accept members’ photo submissions online from July 1 through August 31 each year.

To enter, you must be a member of the Co-op and a nonprofessional photographer. Each member may submit up to 6 photos for consideration. Please do not submit more than 6 photos as they will be disqualified from consideration.

Photo(s) must be:

  • High resolution (300 ppi)
  • Horizontal format
  • JPG, TIFF or PNG

Photo Orientation:

Since our calendar is in a horizontal format, we cannot accept photos in vertical orientation. Please crop your photos to a horizontal orientation before submitting.

Vertical Photo

Panoramic Photos:

As you can see below, a panoramic photo is too wide for the entire image to fit in the calendar image frame, and we don’t want to exclude any part of your beautiful photo! Please crop any panoramic image to your favorite composition before submitting.

Uploading Photos from Facebook

It is best to find the original image on your device instead of submitting a photo you’ve already uploaded to Facebook. Facebook compresses images when they are uploaded, so it will no longer be high enough quality to print in the calendar, and will be excluded from the competition. 

Photo submissions are accepted July 1- August 31 each year, and the 2021 submission is now closed. Please check back to submit photos for the 2022 calendar!
