Bellingham Marine announced its fifth annual calendar photo contest.

The company will accept photos from now through the end of August. They must be received by an Aug. 31deadline to qualify for the 2012 contest.

Submitted photos must be of marinas built by Bellingham Marine or its Middle East licensee, Septech, or feature one of Bellingham's trademarked products. Photos of residential and private docks manufactured by Bellingham Marine also are eligible.

Photos must be of high resolution and high quality. Contestants must be at least 18 years old to participate.

Winning photos will be featured in the company's wall calendar. Additionally, winners will receive a $100 cash award and a framed copy of their calendar page. The winners will be announced in October.

"Last year we printed over 3,000 copies and were not able to meet the level of demand," said Roxie Comstock, manager of business enhancement, in a statement. "There nothing else like it out there. The quality of photography has been stunning. The calendar not only captures the beauty of our industry, but has become a showcase of the world's best marinas."

All photo entries should be submitted to bmi@bellingham-marine.com. The name of the person who is submitting the photo, contact information, the name of the marina and the location should be included.
