2016 NOLS Annual Fund Calendar Photo Contest!

Win a NOLS 50th Anniversary Schwag Bag. Prize includes a travel mug, baseball/trucker hat, various stickers and a 50th Anniversary pin.

Each year, the NOLS Annual Fund produces a calendar made up of photography from our beloved NOLS alumni. In the fall, the calendar gets sent out to over 30,000 graduates, parents and supporters of the NOLS family showing the vast reach and impact of donated dollars.

WHAT WE LOOK FOR: Clear and striking digital images that exemplify life and landscape from your NOLS experience. Our goal in compiling the calendar is to best represent NOLS, its course areas and its technical skill activities.

HOW TO ENTER: Donate your photos to NOLS!

We select from the photos donated over the past year. If you donated photos after July 15, 2014, they will be eligible for the 2016 contest.

DEADLINES: Photos can be submitted year round. The deadline for calendar submissions is 11:59 pm Mountain Standard Time on July 17, 2015*.

*We are not able to accept any photos for the 2016 calendar after this date due to our production deadline. However, you can submit photos on a rolling basis for the 2017 calendar beginning July 18, 2015.

WINNING PHOTOS: The winning photographers from the 2015 calendar contest will be notified by phone or email on or by September 18, 2015 and at that point will receive information about their selected photo and about their prizes for winning.

The judging panel is made up of NOLS staff members familiar with photography and responsible for selecting images for various NOLS printed and online marketing materials. The judging panel will select 16 photos to be published in the 2016 NOLS Annual Fund Calendar. NOLS shall determine winner eligibility in its sole and absolute discretion. All decisions made by the judges are final. NOLS reserves the right to adjust any deadline(s) as the result of causes beyond its immediate control.

QUESTIONS: Contact Aila Brennan at 800-332-4280 or e-mail

We can’t wait to see photos from your NOLS experience!!!
