Voting will last 7 days.

Photos submitted may be featured in our website or The Crab Street Journal. By entering this contest, you are granting LHCOS and CSJ permission to use your photos.

You are eligible to win a prize once every 90 days.

Non participation months:

If there is a month where no photos are entered, random photos will be selected by the LHCOS admin from previous entries to fill the vacant spots.

December voting

The 2nd place winners of the January – November month will be entered in a poll to choose a winner for December. Voting for this poll will be December 1st – December 10th, with the winner being announced on December 11th. This allows us to have the calendar finished and ready for purchase by January 1.

Cover crab:

The photo for the cover of the annual calendar is also chosen by vote. All of the monthly winners will be entered in the year end voting, including the December winner from the previous year. Voting is shortened to allow enough time to have the calendar available for purchase for holiday gift giving.


The winner of Cover Crab is awarded with a free copy of the calendar.
