My Favorite Fondy Calendar Art Contest

Winners chosen Aug 3, 2018

The Fond du Lac Public Library challenged local artists and photographers to submit illustrations for the My Favorite Fondy 2019 wall calendar, which will be sold at library and other community locations this fall as a library fundraiser. The library received 73 entries from local and regional photographers and artists, and on August 3 a VIP panel selected 13 images – 12 months and a cover – in a blind review, in which entrants’ names were not revealed and all submissions were given equal weight.
