The Aveton Gifford Calendar which was produced last year came about after a competition to find the 12 best photos submitted by parishioners. Both the competition itself and the resultant calendar have been extremely popular, and sales have proved to be a successful fund-raiser for the shop. It has been decided to run another competition for a 2017 calendar, and this year the production team will be headed by Pippa Unwin instead of Dinah (John Ashton has a solo exhibition coming up soon in London, so Dinah will be fully occupied with that and Pippa has volunteered to take over from her this year.)
The rules of the competition can be found here AG Calendar Competition Rules and parental permission 2016
If you entered last year it’s worth looking again as some of them have changed, and also the competition has been opened up this year to include children and all home owners in the parish.
Entries are open now, so get out your cameras! There’s plenty of time as entries close at the end of June; as you’ll see from the rules, there are no entry forms required – just take along the photos you want to enter (labelled on the back with the correct information) and pay for the entries at the shop.
