The Fair Trade Resource Network is once again partnering with the Fair Trade Federation to promote the Fair Trade movement with the second annual Fair Trade Calendar Photo Contest. They are inviting you to join the collaboration and help spread the word about your business or organization and the beauty of Fair Trade. The top 12 photos will be featured in the 2011 Fair Trade Calendar.

I highly recommend participating in this contest and then buying the calendar. I have one hanging up at my desk as we speak and I also gave many of them out as holiday presents and they were loved by all. Truth.

But, how can I participate? Well, I am glad you asked. Here are all the details:

Submit photos from June 1-15!

Vote for the best photos from June 16-20.
