News Release Distributed 01/03/14

BATON ROUGE, La. – Louisiana photographers who want to submit photographs for the LSU AgCenter 2015 Get It Growing Lawn and Garden Calendar have only a few weeks to enter.

January 31 is the deadline for sending their best photos of beautiful Louisiana flowers, plants, lawns and gardens. LSU AgCenter faculty members will select approximately 40 photographs for the calendar, according to Elma Sue McCallum, project coordinator.

A dozen of the photos selected for the 2015 calendar will be featured as full-page, color images for each monthly page in the calendar, and one will be used on the cover, McCallum said. The rest will be used throughout the calendar.

Photographers chosen for the monthly pages will receive 10 copies of the published calendar, and their names will be included with their photos, she said. Other photographers chosen will be credited and receive two copies of the published calendar.

Submissions must be high-resolution digital images on CD and submitted with a 2015 Call for Entries form. All images must be photographed in Louisiana and the original work of the photographer submitting the image. Photographers may submit up to 25 of their best gardening photographs. CDs will not be returned.

The deadline for submissions is Jan. 31, 2014. The entry form is available online here. Entries must be mailed to Elma Sue McCallum, LSU AgCenter, 135 Knapp Hall, 110 LSU Union Square, Baton Rouge, LA 70803.

2014 Get It Growing calendars are now on sale at many retail outlets in Louisiana and may be purchased online.
