2019 Calendar Photo Competition

We are very pleased to announce that we made £160 profit for The Old Courthouse from the sale of 2018 calendars.  Thank you to all those who submitted images. We are now seeking images for our 2019 calendar. We would like to include images that show the scenery of the area or reflect the community spirit of Shap or any of the surrounding villages and hamlets.  Images will be selected for the calendar and then visitors will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite image which will form the front cover of the calendar.  Photos can be colour or black and white. Entries should be submitted as an A4 Landscape Print on Photo Quality Paper and delivered to The Old Courthouse in an envelope marked “Calendar Photo” by Thursday 31st May Any images that are selected for use in the calendars should be available in a suitable electronic format i.e. JPEG at 300dpi.
