THEME and CONTEST DESCRIPTION:

Photographers are invited to enter an original photo in the first-ever Brooks Resources Corporation calendar image contest. The Brooks Resources Wall Calendar features a professional photograph each year that captures the essence of Central Oregon. Distributed for free among area residents, visitors and businesses, the Wall Calendar is an annual staple in the region for the last 4 decades. This year, we are holding a contest for one Artist to have their photograph featured on the 2022 Wall Calendar and receive a grand prize of $1,500.

The theme of the 2022 Wall Calendar is “Resilience”. The events of the past year and a half have tested the mettle of our communities. To celebrate Central Oregon's enduring spirit of resilience, Brooks Resources will select a photograph that supports our 2022 Wall Calendar theme "Resilience."

A short Artist Statement on how each photograph submitted relates to the theme of resilience must be included. The description of the photograph’s relationship to the theme may be included in promotional materials. Each photographer can submit 1-3 images for the contest.
