Get your camera out because there is still time to submit photos for possible use in the LSU AgCenter’s 2008 Get It Growing lawn and garden calendar. The deadline for submissions is Feb. 28.
Photos can be of plants, flowers, garden scenes or other items that may be of interest to gardeners.
Photographers chosen for the monthly pages will receive 10 copies of the published calendar, and their names will be included with their photos in the calendar, she said.
Other photographers will be listed as contributors and will receive two copies of the published calendar.
Submissions must be digital images on CD (at least 1 megapixel resolution and preferably 6 megapixels or greater), transparencies or 5-inch-by-7-inch color photos, with the photographer’s name, address, telephone number and e-mail address attached.
All images must be the original work of the photographer submitting the image and must be accompanied by a signed entry form/photo release.
The entry form for submitting photos and other information on the contest can be found by visiting www.lsuagcenter.com/GetItGrowingCalendar and clicking the 2007 Calendar Call For Entries link at the lower left corner of that page. Entry information also can be obtained by calling McCallum at (225) 578-4524 or by e-mailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Entries and entry forms must be mailed to Elma Sue McCallum, LSU AgCenter Communications, P.O. Box 25100, Baton Rouge, LA 70894.
