Calendar Photo Contest Deadline TODAY

2013 Calendar Photo Contest :
Calling All Photographers

Glen Helen is seeking creative images for our 2013 Wall Calendar!

The diversity of habitats and wildlife in Glen Helen’s nature preserve provides outstanding photo opportunities for photographers at all levels of experience. We invite both first time visitors and long time friends to send us photographs taken in the Glen for a chance to be featured in our 2013 Wall Calendar.

We are seeking a variety of images that convey the different moods and seasons of Glen Helen -- an iced-over spring, a flower or animal only found at a certain time of year, a lush green meadow on a summer day, a foggy morning sunrise in late fall—images that capture what is special about Glen Helen throughout the year.

Proceeds from the calendar sales are a significant annual fundraiser for Glen Helen, contributing to the continued protection and restoration of the Glen Helen Ecology Institute’s 1000-acre nature preserve and the programs of Glen Helen’s Raptor Center, Outdoor Education Center and Trailside Museum.

Entries, including entry forms, must be submitted online by 5 p.m. TODAY, July 31, 2012.

Photos must be taken of or within the Glen Helen Nature Preserve and depict its natural beauty. The winning images will be judged on aesthetic merit as well as how well they combine with other images to create an attractive calendar.
