Photo contest

Botniarosk Photo Contest 2025.

This year's photo competition

Botniarosk's photo competition is arranged annually with a new theme for each year and the competition time for the 2025 wall calendar is between 1.1. – 15.9.2024.

Among all submissions received, 12 photographs are selected to illustrate the calendar months in our traditional wall calendar that is distributed to all Botniarosk customers. Selected photographs are rewarded with a fee of €50.

In addition, a vote will be organized on Botniarosk's Facebook page and Instagram profile on which photograph will adorn the cover of the calendar. The winner of this poll will be awarded a fee of €100. An additional fee of €100 will be drawn among all participants in the vote.

This year's theme: Together in nature

In an increasingly hectic and electronics-filled world, we want to highlight the importance of nature for a good well-being with this year's photo competition and thus decorate the 2025 calendar with images that inspire socialising in our immediate environment!

For example, have you planned a picnic at Kristiinankaupunki's Canion bay, perhaps an excursion to Lauhavuori National Park in Isojoki, a hike around Katikankanjoni in Kauhajoki or a mushroom picking trip to the nearby forest?

Photograph your outing and give others the opportunity to be inspired by letting the pictures illustrate our wall calendar!
