Having been set the task of capturing and producing our first Isle of Wight Digital Imaging Group calendar, we are happy to report we’ve exceeded the halfway mark.

Focusing our attention in October 2010 we decided a great project would be to produce our very first IWDIG Calendar.  To launch a calendar for 2012 involves Olympic style planning and we remain focused on capturing 12 fresh scenes from the Isle of Wight each month representative of Jan, Feb etc.

The Calendar task was never intended to be a vanity publication and as the saying goes charity begins at home, last week we mutually agreed the IWDIG 2012 Calendar will be sold to raise funds for Dimbola Lodge.

Dimbola Lodge is the only historically rich centre for photography on the Isle of Wight and all profits from the calendar, which will be on sale later this year, will be going to the Julia Margaret Cameron Trust.

The 2012 calendar will be ready for the Christmas rush and already features scenes of striking photography.  Keeping in focus we want to showcase the rich and vibrant life we as photographers experience on the Isle of Wight.

After viewing and voting on the latest images for inclusion we are now searching for a suitable cost effective publisher.  If anyone has any ideas or comments please use the contact form above.
