Vashon Audubon is looking for great photos of Island birds for our 2022 Birds of Vashon-Maury Island calendar. This popular calendar raises awareness of birds and showcases the work of local photographers. Proceeds from sales help support Audubon programs.
Deadline for submissions is Tuesday, Aug. 31, 2021
We’re looking for:
Every year we receive many photos of Barred Owls, Great Blue Herons, Bald Eagles, and Ospreys. We
encourage a wide variety of species.
Submittal instructions and more information
Submit digital photos by emailing them to email@example.com by Tuesday, Aug. 31, 2021.
Please send the highest quality and largest size photo possible. The photos we use for a full calendar page (11 in. x 8.5 in.) are typically around 5 to 8 MB. If you have a wonderful image that has a smaller file size, feel free to submit it; it might work. We also use smaller photos throughout the calendar and in our annual bird video. Photos should not have watermarks. When the calendar is produced, the photo “bleeds” off the edges of the page, so It’s best if you don’t crop it tightly.
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 and send you a free calendar.
Photographers must own all rights to any photos submitted. While photographers retain copyright, we assume that by submitting photos to Vashon Audubon, photographers are giving Audubon permission to publish their photos in the calendar, promotional materials (such as posters, Audubon website, and newspaper articles), and in the video we produce along with the calendar. Photographers will be credited.
The calendar will be sold at Vashon Audubon programs, local stores, and on our website.
