2021 Get It Growing Calendar

Promote your gardening photographs by entering the LSU AgCenter’s Get It Growing Gardening Calendar Competition. Submit your eye-popping images of Louisiana flowers, fruits, vegetables, gardens, trees and other facets of plant life for all months of the year.

We are developing our 2021 calendar for Louisiana as part of our Get It Growing educational program. This calendar will feature information on what to do for beautiful, lush lawns and gardens in Louisiana. It will be for sale and serve as a fundraising tool for LSU AgCenter programs and initiatives.

Approximately 40 photographs will be chosen for the calendar. Twelve of those will be used for full-page images each month and the cover. Photographers chosen for the monthly pages will receive name recognition with their photos and five copies of the published calendar. The remaining photographs will be included throughout the calendar. Photographers of these images will receive two copies of the published calendar and will receive name recognition within the calendar.

New Deadline

Entries must be mailed or uploaded by May 15, 2020.

How to Submit

Submit up to 25 of your beautiful photos by mail on CD, or online (new feature). Photo files should be in jpeg or tiff format sent on CD or uploaded to our new online submission webpage. Photos will not be accepted by email. See below for details.
