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 13 photos appearing in the 2019 calendar have been decided. However, you can still see the Top 30 finalists and Vote for your Favourite Here
