News Release Distributed 11/15/05

The LSU AgCenter is giving Louisiana photographers a chance to show off their work in its 2007 Get It Growing lawn and garden calendar.

Approximately 40 nature photos will be selected for the calendar, according to Elma Sue McCallum of the LSU AgCenter, who is coordinating the project. The photos can be of plants, flowers, garden scenes or other items that may be of interest to gardening enthusiasts.

Photos will be selected by LSU AgCenter faculty members, and photographers will be recognized in the printed calendar.

"The annual Get It Growing calendar features information on what to do for beautiful and lush lawns and gardens according to climate zones in our state, McCallum said, explaining that the 2006 calendar currently is being sold. Online information and ordering of the 2006 calendar are available by visiting GetItGrowingCalendar.

A dozen of the photos selected for the 2007 calendar will be featured as full-page, full-bleed, four-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 5-inch-by-7-inch color photos, digital images on CD 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.

The deadline for submissions is Feb. 28, 2006, and the entry form is available online at Entries must be mailed to Elma Sue McCallum, LSU AgCenter, P.O Box 25203, Baton Rouge, LA 70894.
