Cavendish Photo Contest
The Cavendish Community and Conservation Association publishes a calendar each year with photographs that celebrate the beauty of Cavendish. Photos are submitted each spring and the community then gets to pick the 12 best submissions. Photos must be taken in Cavendish and Proctorsville and show scenes and landscapes that are valuable for their beauty, historic significance or overall importance to the community. The best picture in each of three age categories also receives an award and a prize. Whether you are a full-time or a part-time resident, this is your chance to capture what you enjoy and then to share it with the community in the 2018 calendar. The usual submission is from ordinary people who find beauty in ordinary places. Photos will be accepted up until June 15. Application forms and rules are available at the Cavendish Town Office or at cavendishccca.org. Contact Robin at 802-226-7736 with any questions you may have.
