Oldtown Photo Calendar Competition

Thanks to all who participated this year!

The Eliot Church started the Oldtown Calendar Project 16 years ago to celebrate the natural beauty and history of this area and the creativity of the people who live here. Many of our photographers have been with us from the beginning, and others joined us this year for the first time.  Perhaps the most common sentiment expressed at this year’s competition was “it’s hard to choose!”

Our community is better off because of our photographers’ passion and creativity. Oldtown is going strong, and it all starts with your work. Thank you for being part of it.
