Blog Post created by laurenbackstrom Employee on Jun 27, 2012

The National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) Firewise® Communities Program announces its 2014 Calendar Firewise Day Photo Contest and invites photo enthusiasts to submit their favorite, original photographs of their community’s Firewise Day events or activities. Winning entries will be displayed in the 2014 Firewise calendar.

Whether it’s a “chipper day” to clear brush and tree limbs, a state fair exhibit, a neighborhood clean-up day, or door-to-door outreach, your hard work helps contribute to a community that is safer from wildfire. Remember, each photo should highlight residents actively participating in Firewise Day activities. So, gather your neighbors and be creative!

if you’re an official Firewise community looking to renew or a neighborhood starting the process for the first time, we want to hear from you. Show us your accomplishments! A total of 15 photos will be selected representing each month, beginning with December 2013 and including the back and front covers.

The contest runs from July 2, 2012 through November 2, 2012. The winners will be announced February 8, 2013.

More information about the contest, including rules and how to enter can be found on the Firewise website. Additional resources and tips on how to plan a Firewise Day event are also available. To learn how others have creatively hosted a Firewise event, visit the success stories page on the website.

We look forward to hearing from you. Good luck!
