The Hope in Shadows calendar is sold on the streets of Vancouver and Victoria by Megaphone's homeless and low-income vendors. Vendors buy each calendar for $10 and sell them for $20, keeping the profit. The calendar is made up of photos taken by our vendors.
These photos are taken during an annual photography contest where Megaphone vendors use single use disposable cameras to capture images of their communities and have the chance to have their photographs featured in the award-winning Hope in Shadows calendar. Plus, there are cash prizes for the Top 30 photos!
The Top 30 Finalists for 2019 have been selected!
Help decide which photos will appear in next year's calendar.
The 2019 calendar will launch in October, 2018 in Vancouver and Victoria. The calendar typically sells from October to January or whenever it sells out. To buy your calendar and support meaningful work for people in poverty, find where Megaphone's street vendors usually sell using the Megaphone App.
Live outside of Vancouver or Victoria? Can't find a vendor? Buy your calendar online here and have it shipped to your door or pick up directly from our Vancouver office.
