Calendar & Card Contest 2025 Fundraiser
Open to all RIWS Members!

It's time for our annual calendar and card contest fundraiser! RIWS members are encouraged to enter up to three images, all of which will be featured in our 2025 calendar. All entries will be posted on Facebook where each "like" a piece gets counts as one vote. The top 13 images will have large spreads on the months of the calendar, and the number one piece will be the cover!

TO ENTER: Send your entries to and pay online above, pay in person with cash or card, or mail in a check made out to "RIWS." Please email high-resolution photos of the piece(s) along with the title and medium. Suggested size of images: 3MB or greater. If you need help photographing/entering your work, please give us a call to schedule an appointment (401) 726-1876.
