The lighthouse keepers of the 21st century are the many nonprofit organizations, community governments, private owners, and other managing entities that care for our historic lighthouse structures. If you have captured a unique image of a lighthouse or associated structure in the process of restoration, or an image of volunteers, staff, and/or visitors at a special fundraising event, we invite you to share your work for our 2019 U.S. Lighthouse Society calendar.
Submission deadline for this category is September 14, 2018.
Go to https://uslhs.submittable.com/submit to submit your images.
Finalists will be chosen by a review panel. 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.
Here are some submissions from this category from last year.
