Announcing our 2017 Calendar Contest! 8

Last year we had some wonderful submissions for the 2016 Calendar, so we’ve decided to do this again! Let me shout out from the roof tops with joy, “We are excited to announce the launch the 2017 Weekly Calendar Contest!”

If your soaps, lotions, lip balms, bath fizzies and more are EXTRAORDINARY products and have what it takes to be featured in our calendar, we would love to hear from you. Share your pictures with us at (limit one photo per product). Or send us a product and we will photograph it for you with a set up equal to your awesome product!

This weekly calendar is perfect for planning your week, recording the books you have read or using it as a journal! Every maker featured will each receive a complimentary copy of the 2017 TheSage Adventurous Makers Calendar, along with bragging rights for being selected as a TheSage Adventurous Maker! Deadline for all submissions will be August 23rd, 2016.

Have any questions? Here are some answers to questions you might have.

Q: Will I retain the copyright for my image(s)?
A: Yes! We ask that you grant us exclusive license for a calendar product. This means that you will not license these photographs for another calendar product, regardless of form displayed.

Q: What kind of photographs are you looking for?
A: Photographs of finished products, raw materials or processes! We are looking for crisp, clear images without distracting labels or watermarks.

Q: Will I have the opportunity to provide my contact information, website or e-mail with my photo?
A: Absolutely! You can provide any contact information you would like to give. It could be a website, company name, e-mail, phone number or even social media pages. I’ve included an example to the right of how this week looked in the calendar.

Q: Can I send you a picture of products that someone else has made?
A: No. You must be the maker of products in the photographs. Private label products may be considered on a case by case basis.

Q: When will this be available?
A: We will be sending the calendar to the printer in October and expect to have the calendars back from the presses in November. As we get more information from the printer, we will share it!

I can’t wait to see what awesome products you submit this year!

About Andee

Director of Happiness. I'm a thirty-something soap snob. I've grown up with handmade soaps, and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps, and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!
