Photo Contest

Now's the time to show off your photography skills

No matter if you’re an amateur photographer, a professional, or anywhere in between; grab your camera or mobile device and snap some shots for our Annual Calendar Photo Contest. Click here to submit your photos.

This contest has become a welcomed tradition, and this year we’re making it even better: Photo entries must be of local surroundings. Thirteen winning shots will be featured in the East Cambridge Savings Bank 2020 calendar, and each chosen photograph will receive a $100 shop-local prize pack.

Let’s create a stunning calendar for the community with photos that show off the talents of our community members! To enter the contest, simply submit your photos with a completed entry form, or post your photos to social media using hashtag #ECSBCalendar2020. If submitting via social media and your photo is chosen as a winner, you will be contacted to submit a high-resolution image and to fill out the entry form.
