GREENSBORO, N.C. — Mack Trucks has announced the winners of the 2024 Mack Trucks Calendar Contest.
Each of the winning entries will represent a month in next year’s Mack calendar.
Thousands of Mack fans and followers voted online to choose the winning Mack trucks from among 171 submissions in seven separate categories. The winners will participate in a professional photo shoot set up by Mack, a news release stated.
All entries and their photos can be viewed at contests.macktrucks.com.
“The response to this year’s contest was fantastic,” said David Galbraith, Mack Trucks vice president of brand and marketing. “We had six times the number of votes as we did in 2022 and the number of entries with dogs in support of our ASPCA sponsorship was heartwarming. Many of our dealers got involved as well by promoting their customers’ entries.”
Mack truck owners submitted photos of their trucks to the Mack Calendar Contest in seven categories: Mack Anthem®, Pinnacle™, Granite®, LR®, TerraPro™ and MD Series, plus an additional category for legacy Mack models that are no longer in production but still hard at work. This year entrants were able to earn bonus points for including their dog in their photo or video entry.
To be eligible for the calendar, each truck, including the legacy models, must currently be in operation in a business or trucking company; the truck must be in routine use; and trucks may not be collector or show trucks that are no longer licensed for commercial use.
