Calling All Photographers...

Send in your favorite photos of waterfalls, hikes, and wildlife for a chance to be selected for a month or cover photo. This exciting contest is an annual event that highlights the beauty of the Tug Hill region.

Deadline for submission is May 31st, 2018.

We are looking for photos that depict seasons, wildlife, agriculture, kids in nature, and water.

Each week we will be sharing photos submitted to the calendar. Following the popularity of our online contests last year, people who ‘like’ our page will be able to help us select the calendar cover photo!

How to Submit:

You may submit up to 10 photos in total for consideration in the 2019 calendar.

When submitting your photos please use the following naming format: Last_First_Location_Description_MonthTaken.

Email your photos to our Community Programs Manager Lianna Lee at tughilloutreach@nnymail.com.

You can also share your photos with us by using the free file transferring site called We Transfer.  Simply add your photos, add your email address, and email them to tughilloutreach@nnymail.com. This site limits you to 2GB per transfer. If your files are over 2GB you may send them in batches or compress them. Here are directions for compressing files on a PC and MAC.

A note about resolution and dpi:

For your photo to be used as one of the main, large month photos it must be a high enough resolution to be printed without becoming pixelated. In general, printing terms this is 300 dpi, with a resolution of 2550 pixels x 3300 pixels.

Typically, iPhone photos do not achieve a high enough resolution – but they can be used for the smaller inset photos throughout the calendar.

By submitting your photo to our Tug Hill Photo Contest, you grant Tug Hill Tomorrow Land Trust the right to reproduce, distribute, and publicly display the photographs and the right to use your name in publications.
