VEC 2020 Calendar Contest Winners

Our 2020 Calendar winner is Janis Wilkey’s image of a Train over the Hiwassee. For our 2021 calendar, we are asking for photo submissions from our Co-op members.

To qualify:

  • This year we are looking for photos that include animals and must be found within our service area.
  • The composition must be horizontal (landscape).
  • Digital not printed.
  • Submitted by email to or by dropping off a flash drive at your local office.
  • Have a resolution of 300 dpi or higher and be a minimum of 8mb image. Cropped images often do not have the resolution or size for a quality print.
  • Have photographers name and contact information along with the location of the photo.
  • Photos must be submitted by March 1, 2020, for the 2021 contest.
  • There is a limit of five photos per account.


We will have a team review the photos submitted for the calendars. If your photo is picked for one of the months, you will receive credit on the last page of the calendar. The overall winning photo will be chosen for the cover of the calendar. If your photo wins the cover, you will also receive a $50 bill credit certificate.
