In what has become a Ruralite tradition, we invite you, our readers, to share your most beautiful, engaging and fun photos—all for the chance to appear in our 2020 calendar.

As many as 13 winners will be selected. Each winner will receive $100.

Submissions are accepted until July 19, 2019.

The contest is open only to members of Ruralite and Currents utilities.

Each person may submit up to two photos. Each photo should include:

  • Photographer’s name, address and electric utility.
  • A short description of what is shown in the photo.
  • An email address and telephone number where the photographer can be contacted.
  • Only digital JPEG photos will be accepted. Photos must be horizontal or landscape format and at least 300 dpi at 11 inches wide by 9 inches tall. Vertical photos
    and files larger than 20 megabytes will not be accepted.

Submissions should be sent to along with supporting information. Please put the words “2020 Calendar Photo Contest” in the subject line. Each person with a photo in the calendar will receive a photo credit and five copies of the calendar to share.

Let the fun begin.
