NRL Produces Calendar with Staffs Own Scenic Pictures for 2011

NRL Produces Calendar with Staffs Own Scenic Pictures for 2011
This year, recruitment firm NRL decided they wanted something different for their annual desk calendar. Instead of buying one off the shelf, and simply adding their own logo, they asked NRL staff to get involved in the calendars production.
The privately owned company invited staff from all six offices to submit scenic photos. The very best were chosen to grace the pages of the 2011 calendar, which will be given away to clients.
Over 80 photos were submitted which made it a hard task to select the winning images. In the end, every office was represented, with photos included in the calendar from staff at every level, from administrative staff to the Chairman, Andrew Redmayne.
Many of the photos are of places near to the NRL branch where the photographer works.
For example, one of the two January shots (there are two per month) is of Callendar House, in Falkirk, shot by Graham Ross from the Falkirk branch. Several are of the Lake District and the Cumbrian coastline, submitted by people who work at the Dovenby and Egremont branches. One of the December photos is by Debbie Power of the Wigan branch, and depicts the nearby Leeds-Liverpool Canal in a white winter veil of ice and snow. By contrast, Washington branchs Joanne Brown took the May picture of High Force, in County Durham.
One of the pictures for September is of Eilean Donan Castle, in the Scottish Highlands. This was the photo selected by Recruitment Internationals own editor, David Head, to grace the calendars front cover. NRL couldnt decide themselves on the best picture and
asked David to kindly judge on their behalf. All the photos used in the calendar were submitted to David anonymously so it was an entirely objective choice on his part the winning photographer was Jane Fretwell of Head Office at Dovenby, Cumbria NRLs Finance Director.
Another winner was Adele Wood, also of Dovenby, whose gorgeous photo of Dovenby Hall Estate in the snow, as well as being used for the second December picture in the calendar, was also chosen for the company Christmas card this year.
We decided this year that a calendar with images contributed by our own members of staff would be more interesting and more attractive than a stock calendar, says Mike Barber, NRLs md. Our staff have enjoyed the result, and its good for clients to see names they know next to some really stunning landscape shots. Were very pleased with the project.
