The Buffalo Chamber of Commerce has compiled photos from area photographers and put them together in a Chamber Calendar for 2012.
The calendars are now on sale, just in time for Holiday gifts. Rachel McCaughey, Assistant Director at the Chamber of Commerce, tells us more about the calendars.
The word went out in October of 2010 that the chamber wanted photographers to submit their photos for consideration. McCaughey said she was blown away by the number of submissions they received.
280 different pictures were submitted by a handful of photographers, and of those, 13 were finally chosen for the calendar.
The Chamber Board looked at all submissions and narrowed the field down to about 60, which were then voted on by the community, which helped narrow the field down again.
McCaughey said the calendars were scheduled to be ready around Thanksgiving, and she explains why.
The calendars are available at area merchants in Buffalo, and also at the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce for $15.
Proceeds from the sale of the calendars go back to the Chamber for activities and events.
