Everglades Wonder Gardens “ Year of the Flamingo” 2020 Calendar Submissions

Required Question(s)

 

 1. Thank you for submitting photographs to the Everglades Wonder Gardens “ Year of the Flamingo” 2020 Calendar contest!

 

Entries will be accepted from July 15, 2019 through September 1, 2019. You must complete this online form in order for your photos to be considered for the calendar. A signed model release form must also be provided for each recognizable person in the image(s).

There are two ways to submit JPEG or TIFF versions of your images:

1) Submit your photos on the Everglades Wonder Gardens (make active link) website. This is the preferred method of submission.

2) Mail the  thumb drive to: Everglades Wonder Gardens Calendar, 27180 Old 41 Road, Bonita Springs, FL 34135. Please write your name and “2020” on the item mailed.

Please keep in mind:

– All entries (up to three images per person) must be provided as JPEG or TIFF files.

– Images should have a resolution of 300 PPI (pixels per inch) or greater.

– Please do not submit images that contain a watermark.
– The EVERGLADES WONDER GARDENS is a sanctuary to protect and rescue the flora and fauna of southwest Florida: our calendar is consistent with this purpose. Images of flamingos in distress because of possible interference or harassment will not be considered. Entries of other wildlife will not be considered, unless a flamingo is in the image.
– Because the goal is to show diversity of flamingos in both the wild and captivity, it would be great if you had can include as many of the six species of flamingos that exist. Entries of subjects of flamingos in nature have a better chance of being used. In general, all images of flamingos will be considered both in nature and in captivity.
