Chris Bilodeau of Douglas, Mass., captured a striking image of an ice disk that formed at the Blackstone River & Canal Heritage State Park in Uxbridge, Mass., this past winter.

WHITINSVILLE, Mass. – Between the stunning, varied landscape of the Blackstone River Valley and the four seasons that come to paint it, there are a myriad of ways to capture photos for Blackstone Heritage Corridor’s 2020 Calendar Photo Contest.

The theme for the 2020 calendar is weather. From rainbows to sunsets and ice storms to fog, each day the weather paints a different picture.

BHC’s annual calendar photo contest receives hundreds of entries, but only 13 images will be selected for the 2020 calendar to illustrate the cover and each of the 12 months. Submitted images not selected for the calendar are used throughout the year for BHC’s various promotional materials, including its website, annual report, rack cards and more.

To be considered for the 2020 calendar contest, photos must focus on weather in the Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor and must be original digital photography. Photos must be submitted in high resolution (300 dpi minimum), horizontal JPG format, 10 inches wide and 8 inches high. No black and white or altered images.

The deadline to enter is Aug. 15. Entry forms can be downloaded from BHC’s website at BlackstoneHeritageCorridor.org, or requested by calling the BHC office at 508-234-4242, or by emailing bcombs@BlackstoneHeritageCorridor.org.

There is no limit on the number of entries. Each individual photo for the contest must be submitted with a signed entry form. Winners will be notified in early September.
