2016 Mono Lake Calendar: Last call for submissions!

This is a final call for submissions for the 2016 Mono Lake Calendar…. The submission deadline, Friday, November 21, 2014 is fast approaching!

With the help of talented photographers, the Mono Lake Committee has created and published the Mono Lake Calendar each year since 1986. The calendar celebrates the awe-inspiring landscapes and ecological wonders of Mono Lake, and calendar sales help to fund our efforts to protect and restore the lake and its greater watershed.

The Mono Lake Calendar has been widely applauded for its artistic rigor, which is why we encourage you to submit high-quality photographs that you feel best capture the spirit of the Mono Basin’s geological and ecological wonders. To be selected for inclusion in the 2016 Mono Lake Calendar, images must depict subjects within the watershed boundary of Mono Lake. Possible subjects include, but are not limited to: plants, geological features, streams, mountains, weather, fall colors, wildlife, and aerials. We do not accept images of sand tufa in an effort to decrease degradation of these fragile features. In publishing the calendars, we strive to promote and celebrate Mono Lake’s natural beauty; therefore, images that are obviously filtered or manipulated will not be considered.

We look forward to receiving and judging the originality, expression, and quality of your unique photographs! We’ve simplified and streamlined the submission requirementscheck them out and send us your photos today. Submission deadline: Friday, November 21, 2014. If you have further questions regarding submissions, please contact Communications Director Arya Degenhardt.
