2020 Glen Helen Calendar Photo Submissions: Raptor Center Edition

Calling all photographers!


In preparation for the Raptor Center's 50th Anniversary in 2020, Glen Helen is seeking creative images featuring the educational ambassadors at the Glen Helen Raptor Center for the 2020 Glen Helen Wall Calendar!

We invite both first-time visitors and longtime friends to send us photographs taken of the raptors at the Raptor Center for a chance to be featured in our 2020 Wall Calendar.

Photos must be taken of Glen Helen Raptor Center's educational ambassador raptors but can be of birds outside or inside their enclosures. The winning images will be judged on aesthetic merit as well as how well they combine with other images to create an attractive calendar.

Proceeds from calendar sales are a significant annual fundraiser for Glen Helen, contributing to the continued protection and restoration of the Glen Helen Ecology Institute’s 1000-acre nature preserve and the programs of Glen Helen’s Raptor Center, Outdoor Education Center and Trailside Museum.


For consideration, please submit photos and a release form online by

5 p.m. on May 2nd 2019.







  • All submissions must be received by email, accompanied by a photo release form. Among other things, the photo release form states that the photographer gives the Glen Helen Ecology Institute and Antioch College non-exclusive rights to use the design in perpetuity for no fee.

  • You may submit as many photos as you wish. However, please note, only 3 images from an individual photographer may be chosen for the calendar.

  • Photographers whose work is chosen for the calendar are credited and receive a free 2020 calendar.

  • All images submitted must be the submitter’s original work.

  • Electronic images should be saved as .tiff or .jpeg files, please upload photos in the highest resolution available.

  • Tips: Only horizontal color shots are accepted for the calendar. Vertical images are not a suitable fit. The calendar requires a variety of image styles and subject matter—landscape images, macro shots of flora or fauna, seasonal or weather-related images and lesser-known sights in the Glen are encouraged. Photos that include people are generally not accepted for the calendar.

  • All photos must be submitted online by 5 p.m. on May 2nd, 2019.
