Thank you to all who participated in the 2014
PCAS OK Bird Calendar Photo contest
whether
one of your photos found a place in the 2014
calendar or not! All of your photographs were
excellent, but since only one photograph per
entrant could win a  calendar spot, the judges had
a difficult time.

This year, as last, PCAS will publish a desk
calendar the size of a CD that comes in a specially
designed jewelbox that flips open to support the calendar on your desk.
The calendar showcases this year's winning photographs/photographers.

PCAS is ordering 75 calendars. Our 2 judges and 13 winning
photographers each receive a free calendar. The remaining 60 desk
calendars are for sale at $10 each. Calendar sales support the cost of
publishing the calendar, while contestants' entry fees are considered as
donations to this highly popular photo contest fundraiser.

Since the calendar supply is limited, it is best to reserve the number of
calendars you wish to purchase now. You will be invoiced for your order
when the calendars are shipped--probably mid October to early November
for holiday giving.

To reserve, simply send the number you want with your complete strete
mailing address to
pcasphotocontest2014@gmail.com

Congratulations and thank you to both judges and contestants!
