Pic of the day calendar

One of the perks of working in a facility that sees so many incredible and unique photographs is the opportunity to single one out for "Pic Of The Day."

It's not always that jaw dropping image that makes the cut, but more often the one that tells a story. It may be a happy dog on a beach, a grandfather and son walking, or a flower. They opportunity for staff to make a connection with our clients and allow them to tell their story is extremely rewarding. It also celebrates the print, and what we do; it allows us to tell our story using social media. Many of the folks who get their picture chosen are excited and want to share that with friends and family.

Last year we had the opportunity to give back in another way.

We decided to produce a Calendar with the images that were chosen. We had our Facebook friends choose the ones they liked the most, and then we printed the calendar. The proceeds of the calendar went to our main charity, The Children's Wish Foundation Of Nova Scotia. It created a bit of a photo festival and many of our clients ordered some for Christmas. So in a nutshell the whole process was fun and contributed to a great cause, granting a wish to a sick child. 

This year we are starting earlier and have decided to give a prize to the "Pic of the Day" with the most Facebook likes during the run of the contest.

 A DJI Phanthom 2 drone is on the block to give away.

Here is how it will work:

All "Pic of the Days" that were selected this year will be put in a Facebook Album on the Atlantic Photo Facebook page.

From there, it will be up to the folks on Facebook to vote for their favorite images with their 'likes.' 

The voting will end and the top 13 images will be picked for the Calendar.

The one with the most 'likes' wins the Drone.

We will then produce the Calendar and start selling them as soon as they are ready. We estimate November 12th for the launch. They will be available in both the Brownlow and Dresden locations as well as for order online.
