Calling all Mono Lake photographers….October 19th, 2012 by Arya, Communications Director
Wednesday, October 31 is the deadline for submissions to the 2014 Mono Lake Calendar.
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.
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 the lake’s and/or 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. Photographs of the highest caliber that capture the spirit and reflect the unique qualities of Mono Lake and environs are requested.
You can find all of the information you’ll need to complete a submission here. If, after reading the submission guidelines, you still have questions, contact Arya Degenhardt via email or (760) 647-6386 x 111.
