The winning photos go into the HU Calendar, and the calendars have proved to be very popular too! Photos from previous years will continue to be available in 2013 and beyond calendars from CafePress (print on demand in small or large sizes) in case you really like the photos from a particular year.

See all the 2017 Contest Winners!

Prizes for this contest are uncertain at this time, as the Prime Sponsor, Touratech AG, has been sold, and we have yet to ascertain what if anything will be available.

We are working on other possibilities, but at the very least you get the fame and glory of your photograph in the HU Calendar!

The best 13 photos will be used in the Horizons Unlimited calendar, and we will share the profits with the photographers. All Winners will also get a free calendar, and 1 year Gold Member status on the HUBB! Your photos could also be in an HU DVD or on the website! Time to get famous!
