LSU AgCenter Announces Calendar Photography Contest

News Release Distributed 12/10/04

Louisiana nature photographers will have an opportunity to show off their work and earn recognition if their photos are selected for the LSU AgCenter’s 2006 Get It Growing gardening calendar.

LSU AgCenter faculty members will select approximately 40 photographs for the calendar, according to Elma Sue McCallum, who’s coordinating the project.

"The calendar will feature information on what to do for beautiful and lush lawns and gardens according to climate zones in the state," McCallum said, explaining that the 2005 calendar currently is being sold. Online information and ordering of the 2005 calendar are available by visiting

A dozen of the photos selected for the 2006 calendar will be featured as full-page, full-bleed, 4-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 in the calendar, she said. Other photographers will be listed as contributing photographers and will receive two copies of the published calendar.

Submissions must be 5x7 color images or transparencies with the photographer’s name, address, telephone number and e-mail address attached, McCallum said. All images must be the original work of the photographer submitting the image.
