MADISON, WI – Discover Wisconsin, the nation’s longest-running tourism TV show, has published its popular calendar, featuring a red barn amid falling snow in Elmwood for the month of December, taken by Hannah Brager. In partnership with Wisconsin Counties Association (WCA) and Sargento, 12 fan-submitted photos are featured in the calendar, highlighting various Wisconsin destinations.

“Our annual photo contest and print calendar continues to grow in popularity year after year,” said Mariah Haberman, co-host and director of brand development for Discover Wisconsin. “Photos of Wisconsin are submitted from all over the country and the calendars are also shipped nationwide. Our crew is blown away by the submissions that roll in every summer!”

Following the submission and voting period, the Discover Wisconsin crew selected the top 12 photos to be featured in the official 2018 Discover Wisconsin Calendar. Of the top 12, the crew also selected a photo to be featured on the cover of the calendar and the cover of a 2018 issue of Wisconsin Counties magazine. The pages of this year’s calendar are filled with beautiful photos taken in the counties of Ozaukee, Oconto, Chippewa, Eau Claire, Kenosha, La Crosse, Polk, Iowa, Dane, Sauk, Door, and Pierce. The 2018 Discover Wisconsin Calendars will be available for purchase this fall at shop.discoverwisconsin.com for $5 plus $2 shipping and handling.

The calendar is distributed in partnership with Sargento, a longstanding sponsor of Discover Wisconsin TV.
