June 4 is Land Trust Day

at Mast Store!

 

We love land trusts because

they impact our lives in so

many ways every day.

By working with individuals,

businesses, and other

assocs., they help provide

fresh water, beautiful scenery,

wildlife habitat, & recreational

 opportunities.

Stop by any Mast Store on

Land Trust Day to learn more

AND to help us support our

local partners.

Mast Store donates 20%

of the day's sales (6/4/22) to

support land trusts.

2023 Blue Ridge Calendar Winners

We received 727 photo contest entries, and almost 17,000 votes were cast in the contest.

In choosing the winners, we used the following criteria: 1) Voting results, 2) Image quality 3) Only one winning photo per photographer, 4) Region and scene diversity, and 5) Uniqueness of the scene. Every year, the quality of the photographs making selection of winners extremely difficult.

The quality of photos submitted was amazing. Our judges have never faced a bigger challenge in choosing winning photos--there were so many deserving entries.

30-40 additional photos will be selecte for inclusion in the 2023 calendar as "Best of the Rest" photos (in addition to the ones selected here). These will be selected in the next 3-4 weeks and winners will be notified as we prepare the calendar for printing.
