Community Coach Blog, Dan Rous, 30 September 2021
Would you like to have a calendar that highlights all that is great about Camelon and Tamfourhill?
Would you like to have a photo that you have taken featured in a calendar?
If you answered yes to either of those questions then have I got something to interest you?! Yes I have!
In collaboration with our good friends at Camelon Arts and as part of their autumn season programme – Together Now!, I am so pleased to be able to introduce to you, the Camelon and Tamfourhill 2022 Community Calendar project. If you enjoyed our previous #WednesdayWalkabout social media series, then this could be for you. Here’s all you need to know to get involved:
What is the Community Calendar project?
The Community Calendar project is the chance for local people from Camelon and Tamfourhill to submit their photos to be showcased in your 2022 calendar.
Who is it for?
Anyone and everyone from Camelon and Tamfourhill who wishes to submit their photo!
What is the theme?
Our theme is ‘local wonders’ and we are looking for photos that capture some of the amazing things, people, and nature that can be found in the area. Show us what you love about living here.
We accept digital submissions of iPhone, camera and scanned analogue photos in jpeg format to a maximum size of 10mb.
How do I submit my photo?
By sending an email with your photo attached to it (max one photo per person) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please don’t forget to add your name to your email so we can credit you with your submission. For anyone under 18, please check with your parent or carer first. All submissions will be accepted and featured provided they meet the technical requirements and content is appropriate.
When is the deadline?
To be included in the calendar, your photo must be submitted by Friday 12 November.
When will I be able to buy a community calendar?
With Camelon Arts, we are hoping to organise a launch event in December so you can purchase as many as you want for Christmas presents! You will be warmly invited to join us so keep an eye out for updates!
So there you have it. I am so excited to see this project launched and am grateful to Camelon Arts for running with it. This is a really great way to celebrate what is great and good in this area. And what’s more, the calendar will be put together by a young graphic designer who is based right here in Camelon. So this is a totally local project. A true Community Calendar. Let’s all get involved!
Until next time
