It is never too late or too early to submit calendar photos.

Ever seen a UPS Calendar? I can assure you it doesn't include any photos of USPS mail carriers or FedEx trucks. It is really common sense. INNOVA prefers to feature photos with DISCatcher Targets. And while Nate is the 3X World Champion and a great guy, he won't likely make the calendar no matter how awesome the photo.

If a course doesn't have DISCatchers, avoid sending close up photos of the baskets. Rather, focus on the general beauty of the course or the thrill of watching a player execute a great shot - like Scott at BRP. Submit shots featuring INNOVA targets, INNOVA discs or players wearing INNOVA clothing.


Sadjo only submitted one photo. Not only did his one photo make the calendar, he also won the drawing for the DISCatcher Sport Target!

Was that pic taken during the Majestic?
Yes. We had four groups backed up at that point, a very common thing at the Majestic. Short of standing on a chair, I am not sure how one could get the basket, the player, and the disc all in one shot. The second shot I posted here, belonging to someone with a cellphone camera, he was standing on the stump to the right of the tee box. I do not know if that would have made a difference with my camera, but there is no way from that angle to get everything as well.

This one obviously did not get picked, but I think gives the best impression of the difficulty and majesty of the hole.



I would go for shots that show off great holes during a particularly strong season or a high-profile tournament (that way it can be tied to a particular month). Maybe also pictures of women and children playing. Most importantly I would go for clean, clear, and unique shots that show disc golf at its best. Deadbody, who won last year, had a wonderful shot of his son teeing off of Giant's Ridge Hole #13 I believe. If you have ever been up to that part of Minnesota where there is some natural elevation, the sights are breathtaking. So, I do not see how FredVegasDGC's photo cannot win next year.

I think I submitted something like 25 pictures for consideration, and those were the ones I felt were best amongst the 300 some pictures I have of people playing. Next year I am heading back to Highbridge with my league and this time around I will have my expensive camera with. Looking forward to having some hopefully amazing shots.

I carry my camera with me almost every time I play. My main goal is getting good pictures of my boys playing and the beauty of the course. I have several spring pictures I was hoping to enter this year but I had a computer crash and haven't been to save all the lost files yet.

Sent in a couple of Dylan at Larson Park in south Dakota. Didn't get picked this year, maybe next.

One of better shots that was taken of me during our road trip unfortunately includes the picture of the disc as well. My prized Star TeeBird is miliseconds away from smashing into a tree less than 20 feet off the tee box.



Of course, there is this shot, where the Pro Destroyer was already out of the frame, but it did not matter anyway because it was a fun shot. I had already used my mulligan a few holes back. I just needed to prove I could throw more than 100 feet.

Oct. 17 must be the day the let the winners know. My dad (Laser) got one in this year, I'll get a pic up later this afternoon. We're trying to remember what hole it's from, maybe someone here will be able to help (Hole 8 at the fun farm? Is that the one at the top of the hill, nice scenery behind the basket, maybe a barn and some horses in the distance).
