Still time to submit entries in this year’s Shetland Times Calendar Competition

Fantastic photos have come flooding in for this year’s Shetland Times Calendar Competition – but there is still time to send your winning entry.

The competition launched a fortnight ago and has already received dozens of artistic images capturing the best of Shetland’s wildlife, landscapes and many stunning sunsets.

But with a week to go until the deadline, the winning entry could still be out there.

So, if you have a photo that captures the essence of the isles then why not send it for consideration?

The photo must be taken in the isles and be landscape-format rather than portrait.

A high-resolution version will be required, and entrants are limited to a maximum of two submissions per person.

A shortlist of 12 entries will be selected before readers get to vote for their favourite at

The chosen image will be printed on the calendar, which will be free to readers in the last paper of the year, and will grace the walls of offices, kitchens and workshops around the isles throughout next year.

Andrew Simpson’s stunning drone shot of Clickimin Broch dusted in snow won top billing for the 2022 calendar.

His entry attracted almost a quarter of the public votes cast – a total of 287.

Entries for this year’s competition can be emailed to with “Calendar Competition” as the subject title.

People can also deliver hard copies to The Shetland Times Ltd, Gremista, Lerwick, Shetland, ZE1 0PX.

The closing date is Friday, 2nd December.
