This photo by Nikki Rose of the Shirey barn in Ligonier Township was featured in the 2019 Ligonier Valley Chamber of Commerce calendar.

The Ligonier Valley Chamber of Commerce is looking for scenic shots from the eastern end of Westmoreland County, to include in the organization’s 2020 calendar.

Photos are needed to represent each of the four seasons, but they must be submitted by April 22. They must be of recognizable locations in the Ligonier Valley and can include landscapes, landmarks or special events, among other subjects.

“We are always looking for the ‘wow’ photo that sets the tone for the entire calendar, and I’m sure we won’t be disappointed,” said chamber Executive Director Scott Haines.

All photos submitted for the calendar contest must be in color, either high-quality prints or high-resolution digital images on CD. Photos displaying watermarks may be disqualified.

Thirteen winners will be notified by May 31. In addition to having their work showcased in the calendar and potentially in other chamber publications, each will receive a $25 cash prize and a copy of the calendar.

Submit photos to the Ligonier Valley Chamber of Commerce, 120 E. Main Street, Ligonier, PA 15658.

Prints or CDs must be labeled with the photographer’s name, address and phone number.

For more information about the chamber, visit or call 724-238-4200.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
