2014 Mono Lake Calendar call for submissionsSeptember 26th, 2012 by Arya, Communications Director
Calling all photographers! The call for submission for the 2014 Mono Lake Calendar is here. If you are interested in submitting, click here for the submission information and read on for details. The submission deadline is Wednesday, October 31, 2012.
Since 1986, the magnificent geological and ecological wonders of Mono Lake have been celebrated in the Mono Lake Calendar, published by the Mono Lake Committee. Sales of the calendar help to fund the efforts of our non-profit organization to protect and restore both the lake and the Mono Basin.
The Mono Lake Calendar has been widely acclaimed for its artistic merit, due in large measure to the talent of the photographers whose work is represented. Each year, the calendar has been published according to exacting standards of artistic, photographic, and manufacturing excellence.
The Mono Lake Committee is announcing plans to publish its 2013 Mono Lake Calendar, and we invite your submission. Photographs of the highest caliber that capture the spirit and reflect the unique qualities of Mono Lake and environs are requested.

Mono Lake Calendar images must be of scenes within the watershed boundary of Mono Lake, and possible subjects include, but are not limited to: plants, geologic features, streams, mountains, weather, fall colors, wildlife, and aerials. Images of sand tufa will not be considered due to the degradation affecting these already-promoted features. Where possible, images identifiable within the context of Mono Lake’s and/or the Mono Basin’s unique scenic beauty will receive preference. In striving to represent the natural beauty of Mono Lake, images that are obviously or heavily filtered or manipulated are avoided.
All submissions will be judged for originality, expression, and quality. A small pool of photos will then be held for a final selection process. An image may be held for: the cover, a month of the year, the introductory essay, or as an inset within the calendar grid. Photos held after the initial selection process are not guaranteed to be used.
If you have questions regarding submissions, please contact Communications Director Arya Degenhardt.
