SULLIVAN COUNTY, NY — Photographers are encouraged to submit up to four color images for the Jeff Bank 2015 Calendar Photo Contest. Submissions will be accepted February 21 to April 18, 2014. Organized by the Catskill Art Society (CAS), the contest has the theme, “ Four Seasons of Nature and Landscapes in Sullivan County.”

Interested artists may submit up to four color photographs, preferably depicting each of the four seasons. Recognizable locations are preferred, but not mandatory.
