2022 Friendship Card Photo Contest for Local Discounts | Spotlight on the Estes valley


The Rotary Club of Estes Park is holding a 2022 Friendship Card Photo Contest for local discounts. Registration is free and the winner will receive one photo credit on the card and two 2022 Friendship Cards. The deadline for submitting photos is October 25, 2021.

Please send your preferred Estes Valley / RMNP photo (landscape view) in high resolution, jpg format to [email protected] A jury will select the winning photo. Cropping and slight color correction are allowed for photos, but photos with anything added or removed through a photo editing program will be rejected.

All decisions of the judges are final. The winner will be notified by e-mail. The winning photo can also be used on other marketing materials for the friendship card. The owner of the photo will not receive any compensation other than the photo credit and two 2022 Friendship Cards.

The Friendship Card debuted in 2019, replacing the long-standing Rocky Card. The Rotary Club of Estes Park reinstated the card as a fundraiser for club projects and community grants. Since its inception, the Rotary Club has provided grants to Crossroads Ministries, the six area fire departments, Bright Christmas, Blue Santa, EVICS, Community Corner Café, Polio Plus and a childhood enrichment program for disadvantaged children in Albania.

“We knew 2021 would be a tough year, but our local merchants never cease to amaze me with the continued support they provide to the community. There were 78 local businesses that participated this year, and Rotary is very grateful for all of them, ”said Karen Thompson, President of the Friendship Card project. “I especially want to thank Estes Park News for their continued publicity throughout the year.

It’s not too late to buy a 2021 Friendship Card and use it for your Christmas shopping in Estes Park!

Rotary friendships and club activities, social events, and volunteer projects provide networking opportunities that build personal and professional connections. We encourage anyone interested in sharing ideas and taking action to create lasting change to visit Rotary. We especially invite all who have been Rotarians to come back and renew their friendships and rediscover the joy of serving others through group action.

The primary focus of the Estes Park Rotary Club is service — in the community, in the workplace and around the world. The 1.2 million Rotarians who make up more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in nearly every country in the world share a dedication to the ideal of “service before you”.
