PRESS RELEASE: IWA Launches 2015 Calendar Competition



Following the success of previous competitions, The Inland Waterways Association (IWA) is pleased to announce the launch of its 2015 Calendar photography competition.

IWA is looking for photographs of UK waterways and is offering three free calendars to the photographers whose photos are used in the final calendar.

Entrants may submit up to 20 photos. Please include a brief description of the waterway location when uploading your photos.


Photos can be submitted by:


All submitted photos will be added to the calendar competition group on Flickr.

As summer is the main boating season, the competition receives more sunny summer photos than for any other season. Entrants can increase their chances of being shortlisted by submitting spring, autumnal or winter photos.

IWA is also looking for a top winter shot to be used as a 2014 Christmas card. A photograph will be selected from the competition submissions prior to shortlisting. The photographer will receive three calendars PLUS ten packs of their Christmas Card (100 cards).

Photos for the competition need to be submitted by 31st January 2014. The photos will then be shortlisted and then the public will be able to vote for the shortlisted photos.

Notes: Photos for the Calendar need to be digital with a resolution of at least 300 DPI and at least 2100 pixels x 1500 pixels (can be landscape or portrait). You can usually adjust the settings on your digital camera to take high resolution photos.

Photos uploaded may be used by IWA for publicity purposes, on the web site, in marketing material, our Annual review or as part of our IWA Calendar. Any photos selected for use will be credited where possible.

Please see full photography terms and conditions.

The 2014 IWA Calendar featuring photographs from last years’ competition is available to buy for £3.60 from
