Call for photos for our 2020 calendar

Do you have a great photo of birds on Vashon Island? We might have a place for it in the 2020 Birds of Vashon-Maury Island calendar!

This popular annual calendar raises awareness of local birds and showcases the work of local photographers. Proceeds from sales help support Audubon programs.

If you have a photo you’d like to contribute, please submit it by August 30, 2019.

We’re looking for:

  • Photos taken on Vashon-Maury Island or surrounding waters
  • Excellent photo quality
  • Photos that do something special—tell a story, show birds in action, convey a mood, show detail that makes you say wow!
  • Overall good range of types of birds
  • Overall good range of island photographers represented
  • Photos for all months/seasons

Submittal instructions
Submit digital photos by emailing them to vashonbirds@comcast.net by Friday, Aug. 30, 2019.

Files should be in JPEG format, sRGB colorspace. The ideal finished size for a main calendar page photo is 11” wide x 8.5” high at 300 DPI (3300 x 2550 pixels). If you have a wonderful image that doesn’t meet these size requirements, feel free to submit it; it might work. We also use smaller photos throughout the calendar. Photos should not have watermarks.

Please include the photographer’s name, address and phone number in the email. List each photo submitted and identify the bird species and when and where the photo was taken.

A committee of photographers and birders will select photos for the calendar. If your photo is chosen, we will notify you.

We assume that photographers whose photos are selected are giving Vashon Audubon nonexclusive permission to publish their photographs in the calendar and promotional materials. Photographers must own all rights to any photos submitted. Photo copyright will remain with the photographer. Photographers will be credited and will receive a free calendar.

The calendar will be sold at Vashon Audubon programs, local stores, and on our website.
