2012 Sea Turtle Calendar ContestDate: August 15, 2011
Contact: Rocio Johnson
STC is looking for talented photographers for the fourth annual Sea Turtle Calendar Contest. STC’s calendar was amazing last year with beautiful images submitted by sea turtle photographers from all around the world. We invite you to enter your sea turtles pictures for the 2012 calendar!
Contributing your pictures is a great way to help spread the word about sea turtle conservation. The sea turtle calendar helps remind people, throughout the year, that sea turtles need our help to survive in our world’s ocean and coastal ecosystems. It also includes pertinent sea turtle dates, like nesting seasons and World Sea Turtle Day.
To participate, please submit any of your sea turtle images to email@example.com by September 15, 2011, following the criteria below:
- The image must be submitted by the photographer or include written permission for submission from the photographer;
- Submit only images that show turtles in a natural setting and follow turtle-friendly guidelines (i.e. no flash images of nesting sea turtles, no images of people handling sea turtles, etc.);
- Images must be high resolution (300 dpi or more); and
- Include a brief description of the image, location, date it was taken and the photographer’s name.
There may be up to 13 winners, including the coveted cover image. By submitting your image to firstname.lastname@example.org beforeSeptember 15, 2011, you are granting STC rights to use your photography for the 2012 Sea Turtle Scenes Calendar and other STC education initiatives. STC will not distribute your image without your written permission. The winners will be announced in STC’s monthly e-newsletter, Sea Turtle Talk.
Winners will receive an STC t-shirt and recognition in Sea Turtle Scenes, along with 2 complimentary copies of the 2012 calendar. Sea Turtle Scenes will be available for purchase in October, just in time for the holiday season!
