Debbie and I are working on the Lamma Calendar 2013, an A4-sized wall calendar very similar to the 2011 edition.

See the boxes in Diesel's and 7th Avenue and the Lamma-zine, today, Sep 21 for details on how to get YOUR Lamma photos into the "official" Lamma Calendar. It'll be ready and sold at the Lamma Fun Day on Nov 24 and afterwards along Main Street.

This time, we'll happy to accept more than 1 photo per monthly page, for example 2 vertical or 3 panorama photos or even mixed layouts fitting into the landscape format of the calendar pages.

Photos not selected for the Calendar will still be featured on this website, with your permission, for example as Photo of the Day or in Lamma-zine stories or photo galleries, with full credits, of course.

Deb Lindsay writes on her FB page, Lamma Calendar 2014:

The Lamma Calendar is going into its fourth year of publication. The calendar is a community project that raises money for charitable causes via photo submissions of Lamma photography, and profits from sales of the calendar on the island.

Previous Lamma Calendars

- Sales profit from the calendar will also be donated to charitable causes on Lamma. Beneficiaries to be announced soon!
- New this year! The publisher will invite Lamma businesses to sponsor a month in the calendar. Get your logo and contact details hanging on walls across Lamma for 12 months for just the cost of a donation to charity!
- The calendar will be launched at the Lamma Fun Day on 23rd November 2013, and for sale on Lamma thereafter
- See posts on this page to find out more details about photo submissions, donations and sponsorship

Last year's calendar raised a total of HK$13,440. Donations were distributed as follows;

"Calendar submissions are now closed. On behalf of CWS, thanks to all of you for participating this year.

There have been more submissions than ever before - almost twice as many! Some really hard decisions are ahead for the publisher to choose the finalists! The shortlist has been chosen already and the final decision will be made by the end of the month.

Runners-up will receive a calendar-size digital print of their photo. Thanks again to all of you who have participated!"

Here are links to my own final submissions, shortlisted by Deb the Lamma Calendar editor/producer/distributor from my own favourite Lamma photos of the last year, see below. Deb used two of my photos in last year's calendar.
But I can't be sure yet if even one of these 3 below will be chosen for the calendar as the competition seems to be pretty stiff this year. I haven't seen any of candidates yet, as it's all handled by Deb, all credits go to her for this great and very successful charity project, now in its 4th year! I'm just the main promoter and one of the monthly sponsors this year.

These are my submissions:

Collage of 6 images from:
(just below "Click for photo gallery")

Night photos collage from:

First 2 wide photos from:

Single photo or collage of the bottom 2 rows:

2-photos collage:


Sunset collage:

4-photo collage:

Single photos or collage made from 2 rows:

Last year's calendar leftovers:

"To all photo contributors and sponsors of the Lamma Calendar 2014. A total of HK$8,195 was raised for CWS this year - more than any other year! - thanks again for taking part!

A sneak preview of the calendar went up on the Facebook page this week - if you haven't seen it yet, you can find it here;!/groups/157675927767337/

The calendars will go on sale at Lamma Fun Day on Saturday, and will be for sale from outlets on Lamma thereafter. It would be great if you could help me to boost potential sales by sharing the preview on your Facebook page, and encouraging your friends to buy a copy or two for stocking fillers.

Bulk buying is 10 or over, and if you buy 10 you get one free - but only if you buy on Fun Day or from me directly!

ALL profits from sales (ie, after print and transport costs) will be shared equally between three beneficiaries:

Lifelong Animal Protection (LAP):
Living Lamma:
To help towards medical costs for a the Searl Family

Many thanks for your support!"

I'm proud to be again a photo contributor and sponsor of this beautiful collector's item - January page - to be sent to my family and friends overseas. I'll definitely be bulk buying....

This is in addition to the HK$8,675 raised from photo submissions and sponsorship, which was given to CWS in December.

A huge thank you to all the people and businesses that helped promote and sell the calendar this year. A special thanks to; Lamma-Gung for helping with promotion; Barbara and the Living Lamma team for their help on Lamma Fun Day; Joyce at Jing Jing, Caroline and James at the Lamma Grill, Mary and Les at Prime, Maria's shop, and the team at the Christian shop for helping me with sales; all the sponsors; and last, but definitely not least, a special thank you to all you people who bought one or more over the last couple of months, which has made this truly a community project."

$8,675 can send 16 children in rural villages to kindergarten for a year in Nepal or it can pay for 8 young adults to receive vocational training, counselling and employment opportunities that will forever change their lives and help them live independently and sustainably. Thank you!"

"Gone but not forgotten!

Hi Lamma peeps, yet again I'm blown away by the generosity, and kindness our Lamma friends are capable of on many different levels!

The Searl family are truly blessed to have been a part of (still consider myself a part of such an amazing community!

Can you tell I like!!!!!!! Marks!!!!!

We would love to thank all people involved in creating the Calendar for Lamma Fun Day (which we sadly missed) I have a good idea how much work goes into a project like this and like I said you Lammarites (not only Lammarites) shine when it comes to helping others.

Am I waffling?
I love you all and miss you all!

I like to end by saying we made the best division with a little help from our friends. Everything is working out well we are very happy and a very lucky family!

Thank you xxxxxxxxxxx"
