2023 Active Outside Calendar Contest Call for Entries

CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (May 13, 2022) – Charlotte County supports and promotes healthy, active lifestyles. Our Community Services Department uses the phrase Get Up, Get Out, Get Active in its outreach to residents and visitors promoting county recreational facilities and programs. Our tourism bureau uses the slogan Our Best Side is Outside in its marketing campaigns.

To highlight our wonderful natural environment, world-class facilities and our healthy, active residents, the theme of our 2023 county calendar will be Active Outside. We’re calling on the public to submit photos that feature people participating in outdoor activities, whether it’s sports, swimming, boating, beachcombing, bird watching, hiking, playing at the playground or whatever else you do you outdoors. We’ll select 15 photos to be featured in the 2023 Active Outside calendar.

It’s free and easy to enter. Simply email your photos to Use the subject line Active Outside and include your contact information and the subject of your photo. Winners will receive a free calendar and have their photos featured on the county’s website and social media pages. You can enter as many photos as you would like.

Some ground rules: No alcohol or business names can appear in photos. No posed photos.

The deadline for submissions is Aug. 13, 2022.

Winners will be notified by phone or email. Calendars will be available to the public in November at county facilities to be announced.
