Calling all photographersThursday, August 15, 2013 by: Kate Adams***********
For the second year in a row, North Bay’s Caisse populaire is creating a calendar comprised of local images, recognizing the beauty of our region. The invitation goes out to any photographer interested, whether they are a Caisse member or not.
To submit your images simply contact the Caisse, drop in with a digital version or email your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information.
Amateur photographers are more than welcome. All photos submitted are reviewed and considered, although space is limited.
The initiative was a big hit for 2013. The calendars are free and area businesses generously sponsor each page.
The proceeds will go to a non-profit group that is a member of the Caisse populaire family. The proceeds from the current calendar went to the Near North Palliative Care Network. The recipient for the 2014 calendar has yet to be decided.
“This is just one way that we assist non-profit organizations” says Caisse populaire General Manager Norm St Amour. “All non-profit members also benefit from no service fees, meaning more of their money can be used for their core cause.”
The deadline for submitting photos is September 30th, 2013. The free calendars are expected to be available by November.
