Calendar Specifications

Each year, the firm produces an 11”x14” single sheet color calendar featuring custom-designed artwork. The calendar is produced in both electronic and printed form.

Artists are encouraged to be creative, however, images containing nudity, violence or offensive language will be eliminated. Please note that this competition is for the image only – a graphic designer will incorporate the image with the other calendar elements.

Images should be 300 dpi at 100% of size submitted in .jpg or .tiff file formats, and the file name should include the artist’s first initial and last name. 200-300 PPI is the preferred resolution for press-quality printing. Submissions should be sent to info@jjco.com with “JJCo calendar contest” in the subject line (please limit submissions to three images per artist). The winning artist will have his or her name credited to the image. The artist selected for the calendar will also receive $500 and 50 copies of the calendar.

Deadlines and dates: Deadline for submissions is August 15, 2020. Artists will be notified in September.

Once all submissions have been received, the firm will select its favorite three images and invite clients and friends of the firm to vote for their favorite. The calendar will be distributed in early November.

Tanya Langford
“Ever since my father gave me a camera at a young age, photography has opened up a whole new world for me. I took pictures of everyone and everything. I took classes and learned how to develop and print my images. I have continued to take pictures throughout my adult years and eventually started showing my work at exhibits. When not behind the camera, I work as a civilian supervisor for Seattle Police Department.”
