Congratulations to all of the winners! We hope all of our customers enjoy the calendar and the great photos of pets and wildlife that were submitted. We also want to congratulate all of the photos that won honorable mention and are also featured in the calendar.

This year’s contest theme is “Call of the Wild Meets Domestic Bliss “

Welcome to the 4th Annual Union Bank Photo Calendar Contest. Two ever popular themes for photo contests are Wildlife and Pets. We decided to make this year’s contest a combination of both themes.

Union Bank invites all photographers to submit their most creative, awe-inspiring images of the beautiful and fascinating wildlife that surrounds us in northern Vermont and northern New Hampshire or, if you prefer, send an image that captures a favorite pet’s personality. We will be looking for photos that have artistic appeal, creativity and interesting compositional structure.

We invite all photographers from all levels of expertise to submit their best photos for a chance to win a cash prize and to be showcased in our 2019 calendar!

Contest deadline: Wednesday, October 3, 2018.

Subject and theme of photos: All photographs must represent areas in Northern Vermont and Northern New Hampshire, where Union Bank provides banking services. Photos submitted from locations outside of our geographical footprint will not be accepted. If you need info about our locations, check out our location map. 

Ideas for photos: Vivid, bold and powerful photos of Vermont and New Hampshire wildlife in their natural habitat; photos of favorite pets capturing interesting expressions, personality and character.

Note: Photos with family & friends are not necessarily conducive for the calendar contest, however you may submit them as long as you will be able to obtain signed waivers from each person in the photo (providing your photo is chosen), and we may use them for other Union Bank marketing purposes.


  1. 1st place winner will be awarded $100 cash prize and the calendar cover

  2. $50 cash prizes will be awarded to each individual selected for one of the monthly calendar spots
