Wanted: Photos for ARCHELON’s 2023 Calendar!
Calling all photographers amongst our volunteers, supporters, members and collaborators! ARCHELON is looking for talented photographers (amateur or professional) for the 2023 ARCHELON Calendar Contest! The ARCHELON calendar reminds people throughout the year that sea turtles need our help to survive. The 3 themes of the contest are: sea turtles, beaches and people engaged in ARCHELON activities.
The calendar includes important sea turtle dates like World Sea Turtle Day, World Environment Day and World Oceans Day. It also includes important periods for sea turtle reproduction in the Mediterranean, such as the mating period, the egg laying period, the nest hatching period, as well as the season where releases of rehabilitated sea turtles from the ARCHELON Sea Turtle Rescue Centre are taking place. Contributing to the calendar is a great way to help spread the word about sea turtle conservation and ARCHELON’s work!
We are looking forward to great submissions for the 2023 calendar, which will also mark the 40 years of ARCHELON! We are only accepting photograph submissions, NO artwork.
Photo submissions along with the «Photography permission» should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than October 30, 2022 and must follow the criteria below:
Include photographer’s name, brief description of the image, location, date it was taken, and Photography Permission Form
Image must be submitted by the actual photographer or include written permission for submission from the photographer.
