Spartanburg Water’s Customer Calendar Photo Contest kicking off

Spartanburg Water’s Customer Calendar Photo Contest kicking off

June 30th 2021

Our contest has ended. Thank you to those who entered and we will contact those whose photos were chosen for the calendar by Friday, August 20.

Wednesday, June 30, 2021

The contest runs from June 30, 2021, through 5 p.m. on July 30, 2021.

The 2022 theme is “Focusing on the Future.” Water is a huge part of our world – and as you get back out into it – we want to see the spots where you’re soaking it all in! The photos must be taken in the Spartanburg County area.

We will select 14 photos to feature in our 2022 calendar – one for each month, as well as photos for the front and back cover. The lucky winners will receive a $100 cash prize. The photographers and winning photos will also be recognized on social media. All photos are selected by a confidential committee without knowledge of who has taken them.

In order to maintain quality and coincide with the calendar layout, all pictures must be horizontal (landscape) format and a resolution of at least 300 dpi. Photos taken on smartphones must be taken on the highest “actual size” setting. Please do not downsize photos before submitting. All photos must be in a digital form to be eligible for the contest.

Along with your photo, you must include the following information: name, contact information (phone, address, email), where the photo was taken, who is pictured, how you would caption the photo, and how it ties in to the theme. We are also requiring photographers to sign a waiver, consenting photo entries become property of Spartanburg Water and are authorized to be used at the company’s discretion. Up to 10 photos per person can be submitted individually. All information fields must be filled out for each submission.

So grab your phones and cameras and start snapping! We want to see those submissions that scream Spartanburg Water! Close up and abstract shots are encouraged. Some ideas include:

  • Our watershed – Pacolet Rivers, Lake Bowen, Lake Blalock, Municipal Reservoir #1
  • Dogs and water
