DCRO Calendar Competition
« on: July 06, 2020, 11:16:32 am »
We are looking for 12 images of Peak Caves or Caving to produce the DCRO 2021 Fundraiser Calendar in an effort to fill our financial ‘Covid-Gap’.

We have come a long way in terms of equipment, training and experience since this photo from 1966, with a continual programme of equipment replacement and upgrades.

We hope you can help us raise some funds so we can provide an even better service across Derbyshire for years to come.

How can you help??  We need your fabulous photographs for our 2021 calendar!!



Every photographer to have an image featured will receive a DCRO Mug!

The top three images, as decided by a select panel of DCRO members will be put to a vote on UKCaving.com to decide who gets the honours of the cover image.

Through clever layout design we are accepting both portrait and landscape entries.


The calendars will then be available for pre-order at £7.99, produced locally on high quality A4 paper, Wire-o bound with a hangar (none of that cheap stapled rubbish) and sent direct to your door.


Submissions via 2021calendar@derbyshirecro.org.uk or post on the thread below.

Closing date for entries 26th July.

On the assumption that team members can enter (or if not, I don't mind as I'm just sharing a few of my favourite pics)....
1. Topping out at Longcliffe - the day the cap was completed.
2. Peak Cavern - Buxton Water
3. Peak Cavern - Treasury Chamber

Open to all, but any entrants will not be able to judge which images are chosen.

Good Luck.

I've got plenty of the less-often photographed sections of Peak and Speedwell, so will email some over shortly ;)

Thank you all for the fantastic submissions, we will now assemble a small panel of 'Least Affiliation' with those who have sent us images to put the calendar together.

Watch this space.... Its going to be a good one  ;D
