Technology is reflected in light stations and other aids to navigation in so many forms — whether it be the optic, fog signal, or even the method of construction. For this category try to artistically capture some aspect of the technology that made these aids to navigation possible. Submission deadline for this category is May 30, 2018.
Here are some examples of last year’s submissions for the Technology Category:
The deadline for the Technology category is May 30th. The deadline for the Sunset / Sunrise category is April 30th.
Finalists will be chosen by a review panel for each category. Images for the printed calendar will be selected from the finalists. Each finalist will receive a free calendar. Calendars will be available for purchase in the Keeper’s Locker and will be mailed in late October 2018.
Society members can submit images at https://uslhs.submittable.com/submit.
