Submit Photos


Hit us with your best Shots!  We are accepting photo entries for the 2014 Weather Calendar competition.  We are publishing calendars in Colorado, Maine, Montana, Washington State, and a regional Western States edition of our 6 x 9 Desk Style - Engagement Calendar.  Photos submitted for Colorado, Montana and Washington State are also eligible for inclusion in the Western States Engagement Calendar.  A “First Place” prize of $200 will be awarded to the individual who submits the winning front cover image for each calendar.   Second place winners who have one or more photos placed in a calendar will receive a free calendar. 

Eligibility:  The Weather Calendar photo contest is open to all legal residents of the United States and District of Columbia, who are 18 years of age or older.  Contest is subject to all federal, state, and local laws and regulations.   The contest begins on May 1, 2014 and ends on July 31, 2014.  There is no entry fee.  The Washington Calendar contest runs through the end of September 2014.

How to Enter:  Read the complete Photo Submission Guidelines.  Follow the instructions and send each photo in an individual email message with the month the photo was taken in the subject line.  In the body of the email include the subject, location, your name, address, and phone number. 

For good image quality and fast upload, each photograph should be submitted in .JPG format and cannot exceed 5 MB in size.  Please limit your submission to 20 images. If your photo is selected for final judging, you will be asked to submit a high-resolution file.  DO NOT SUBMIT HIGH-RESOLUTION IMAGES UNLESS REQUESTED.

By submitting images, participants warrant that the submitted images are original, do not infringe on any third party’s rights, and that participant has obtained any necessary permissions from any third party if a third party or third party’s property appears in the photograph. Participants must not infringe on the rights of any other photographer or person or submit images that involve the harassment of wildlife or damage to the environment.  Conrad Group reserves the right to disregard any images that do not fit the theme of the photo contest.

Our calendars are science based, educational publications.  All photos should accurately reflect the subject matter and the scene as it appeared. Photos that have been digitally altered beyond standard optimization (removal of dust, cropping, adjustments to color and contrast, etc.) will be disqualified. This includes the digital addition or deletion of objects in the photos.  Clearly label animals as wild or captive. Do not submit black and white photos.  Images captured with cell phone cameras of fewer than 8 megapixels, will not be considered. Composition should be pleasing and not include overhead wires, or other obstructions.
