PHOTO FORM (download)

Every year all photo submissions are voted on by the RPCV-Madison group to be part of the International Calendar.

Share your pictures with the world. Photos chosen for use in large format win 25 calendars. Photos chosen for use in small format win 5 calendars. Even if your photos aren’t chosen to be used in the calendar but do qualify criteria-wise you’ll receive a brand new calendar just for submitting your photo because we really appreciate your submission. Best of all your winning photo submissions will be helping others. Please read guidelines below.

Anyone can submit photos! You don’t need to be a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer to submit your photos for future calendars. If you have pictures from a country where Peace Corps Volunteers have served - past or present (see PC country listing below), we encourage you to join this great effort.

General
• Pictures must be from a country where Peace Corps Volunteers have served (past or present).
• No picture showing a Peace Corps Volunteer will be eligible.
• A photographer may submit a maximum of 5 pictures per year.
• A picture submitted three times, but not selected, is no longer eligible.

Format
• Submit a quality 5”x7” print to be in the competition - a maximum of 5 photos per photographer.
• Original image can be a color print, transparency, or digital image (must be hi-res from 5 megapixel camera or better).
• Submitted prints will be retained in a RPCV library. If your photo wins, we may ask to use your original during production.
