Submit bird photos for our 2018 calendar!

May 29th, 2017

Calling all Bay Area bird photographers! It’s time for our annual contest to select photos for our 2018 Birds of the San Francisco Bay Area photo calendar.

Send us your three favorite photos of Bay Area birds, by midnight on July 5, 2017. Photos must be high resolution (printable at 300 dpi at a size of 9 but 12 inches). Include your name, the bird species, where the photo was taken, and any relevant details about the bird or photograph. Please email photos to idebare@goldengateaudubon.org.

Photos must be taken in the nine Bay Area counties — Alameda, San Francisco, Contra Costa, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Marin, Napa, Sonoma, or Solano.

Hint: The calendar layout means we need more landscape-shaped (horizontal) images than portrait-shaped (vertical) images. We are especially interested in images of birds engaged in some kind of activity — feeding, flying, nesting, caring for young, etc.

Winning photographers will receive a copy of the calendar, which is a true collector’s item, printed on high-quality paper that will showcase your work beautifully. Proceeds from the calendar go to support GGAS’s conservation and environmental education programs.
