Thank for your interest and photo entries!
The 2019 UC Davis Repro Graphics Made-to-Order Calendar Contest is now closed to any additional submissions. The top 6 — as evaluated by a panel of judges — will be posted on the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden's Facebook page by noon on September 14 for community voting. Check back soon!
Since 2010, Repro Graphics has offered a custom blend of data and images on calendars – at no charge to our campus community – to highlight our in-house variable-data printing (VDP) capabilities.
Every October we offer faculty and staff these made-to-order calendars. Participants choose a photo they like from a number of campus images and add personalized dates such as birthdays and anniversaries. Repro Graphics prints and delivers the individualized calendar to each participant before the new year.
The In-Plant Printing and Mailing Association bestowed us with a gold award in the VDP category for the 2018 calendar, and we are celebrating with a photo contest!
Your photo on the calendar
Showcase the beauty of the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden – which includes the Arboretum, Putah Creek Riparian Reserve and all of our of gorgeous campus landscapes – by sending in photos (up to five) of your favorite campus spots.
How to enter
Read the submission guidelines and rules below, shoot some beautiful photos, then fill out the entry form!
After a Review Committee reviews the entries, the top images will be uploaded to an album on the Arboretum’s Facebook page on September 14 for general voting. Voting runs from when the album is uploaded on September 14 and ends on September 27 at 5 pm. A positive vote consists of any Facebook reactions (“like”, “love”, “haha”, “wow”, “sad “or “angry”). The photo with the highest number of votes wins!
The winning photograph of the contest will be featured as one of the options for the UC Davis Repro Graphics made-to-order calendar. Enjoy bragging rights and seeing your work displaying throughout offices and cubicles all over campus.
In addition, the winning photographer will receive a swag bag of UC Davis goodies, and a professionally framed print of your winning photo!
