(03/04/21) BATON ROUGE, La. — The deadline to enter photos for the 2022 edition of the LSU AgCenter Get It Growing calendar is March 30.
For the next few weeks, faculty at the LSU AgCenter will be evaluating photos to illustrate the calendar, which features gardening tips and instructions alongside images of the plants, flowers vegetables and gardens.
The annual call for entries has been issued, and photographers are encouraged to submit their best work to have their photos selected for the next edition.
AgCenter faculty will select about 40 of the best photos for the calendar, said Elma Sue McCallum, the project coordinator. The deadline for entries is March 30.
Professional and amateur nature photographers from Louisiana may submit their work and earn recognition if their photos are selected for the 2022 lawn and garden calendar.
“We’re asking photographers to submit their best full-color photos of lawns, gardens, flowers, trees and vegetables,” McCallum said.
Twelve photos will be featured as full-page images for each month’s page in the calendar, and one will be used on the cover, she said. The rest will be used throughout the calendar.
Photographers chosen for the featured monthly pages will receive five copies of the published calendar, and their names will be included with their photos, McCallum said. Other contributors also will be listed with their photos, and they will receive two copies of the calendar.
Entries must be high-resolution digital images and submitted through the online submission process at http://lsuagcenter.com/gigcc or on a CD. Submissions by email will not be accepted.
All images must be the original work of the photographer and taken in Louisiana. Each person is asked to limit their entries to 25 or fewer of their best photos.
Submission guidelines can be found at www.LSUAgCenter.com/GetItGrowingCalendar.
