(01/31/19) BATON ROUGE, La. — Louisiana photographers who want to submit photographs for the LSU AgCenter 2020 Get It Growing Lawn and Garden Calendar have only a few days left to enter.

Feb. 28 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, said project coordinator Elma Sue McCallum.

A dozen of the photos selected for the 2020 edition 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 five 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 a CD, DVD or USB flash drive and submitted with a 2020 Call for Entries form. All images must be photographed in Louisiana and be the original work of the photographer submitting the image. CDs, DVDs and flash drives will not be returned.

Submission guidelines can be found on the Call for Entries form, which is available at

“We’re asking photographers to submit their favorite photos of lawns, gardens, flowers, trees and vegetables,” McCallum said. Each person is asked to limit their entries to no more than 25 of their best photos.

For more information, contact McCallum at 225-578-2462.
