CFB’s Annual Photography Contest

Capturing The Gateway Area: The Photography Contest Winners to be Featured in the 2024 Wall Calendar

[Clinton, IA ] – We are delighted to announce that the esteemed winners of the 2024 Photography Contest will have their talents immortalized in our popular wall calendar, celebrating the artistry and creativity of our local photographers. The contest, organized by Citizens First Bank, receives an overwhelming response from the community, and the selected photographs will take center stage in a calendar that will adorn homes, offices, and establishments throughout the Gateway Area.

The 2024 Photography Contest aimed to showcase the breathtaking beauty of our community through the lens of talented local photographers. The captivating entries submitted by individuals of all skill levels share their captures, making the judging process a tough but rewarding endeavor.

As a testament to the photographers’ work, each selected image will be featured on a month in the 2024 wall calendar. This unique opportunity offers participants unparalleled exposure and recognition, with their names being prominently displayed alongside their respective photographs. This recognition extends far beyond the calendar itself, as the winning photographs will also be showcased in various promotional materials, exhibitions, and social media platforms, ensuring widespread acknowledgment of the artists behind the lens.

“We were truly amazed by the talent and creativity displayed by our local photographers,” said Carrie Donaire, Marketing Officer of Citizens First Bank. “The wall calendar is a small token of our appreciation for their contributions to the community and a way to recognize their artistic achievements. We hope this calendar serves as a lasting tribute to their skill and passion for photography.”

The 2024 wall calendar will not only serve as a visual feast, but it will also be a symbol of our town’s vibrant culture and artistic heritage. It will be made available for free at Citizens First Bank branches and select local businesses starting in November, 2023.
