CalMac launch calendar competition

Caledonian MacBrayne is inviting amateur photographers of all ages to take part in a competition to have their photographs featured in the company’s popular calendar which is sold around its network and on board its ships.

Martin Dorchester, Managing Director of CalMac, said: “Our calendar is a wonderful showcase for the west coast of Scotland and is highly prized by those who buy or receive them. Our ships and ports often provide a perfect vantage point from which to capture the stunning scenery, and we know from social media sites and picture sharing websites that there are many of amazing pictures taken at all times of the year, in all conditions, that would be perfect for our calendar.

“We have therefore decided to launch this competition to encourage people to take more pictures of and around our ships, and submit the best to us.”

Prizes include CalMac Travel Vouchers, Amazon Camera & Photo shop vouchers and a framed print of the winning image.

The competition deadline is 5pm on Monday, May 20, 2013.

* Images can be uploaded via Calmac’s facebook page or alternatively emailed to emarketing

Entries should include a title and location for each image, and also which season the scene depicts if applicable.

* Full rules and conditions can be found at the official Calmac website.
