If you have not already read about ONDA’s Wild Desert Calendar, you can do so here

By submitting photos, I agree to the following:

  • I have full rights to the photograph(s) submitted.
  • I grant permission for ONDA to use the images submitted for its communications purposes at ONDA’s discretion. ONDA, and others with ONDA’s consent, have non-exclusive rights to use and publish the photograph(s) submitted for Wild Desert Calendar consideration on ONDA’s website and social media pages, or in publications such as (but not limited to) newsletters, annual reports, brochures, postcards, slideshows and press releases.*
  • If my photograph is selected for the cover of the Wild Desert Calendar, I understand that the Oregon Natural Desert Association will, at its own cost and in consultation with me, print my photo to promote the calendar and conservation objectives. I will provide a high-resolution file for this specific purpose, and I will not be compensated for use of this image. Note: ONDA will never sell your photograph(s). Prints are used for display at events or as gifts at the discretion of ONDA staff.
  • I understand that my photograph(s) may be cropped, captioned, and otherwise edited.
  • I understand that Oregon Natural Desert Association will provide a photo credit whenever possible, but that it may not be possible in all instances.

*If you would like to submit photos that are only considered for the Wild Desert Calendar and not used for any other purpose, please email

Submitting Your Images:

1.) Please rename your files to include the photographer’s full name, location, one of the four seasons, an aspect of the photo, in that order: Your Full Name-Location-Season-Subject. Examples: 

  • Melissa-Groo_Lake Abert-Winter-American Avocet.jpg
  • Katie-Orlinksky_Hart Mountain-Fall-a stand of golden aspen.jpg
  • Jimmy-Chin_Malheur National Forest-Spring-hiker on trail.jpg

      *Submissions that do not follow this naming format will NOT be considered.*

2.)  Please submit files with a .jpg file extension. (Files ending in .jpeg are not coming through with their identifying names)

3.) Each should ideally be a JPG sized to be 2000 pixels on the long edge, between 1 and 4.95 MB.

4.) Due to the high quality content of our calendar, we ask that submitters please use their judgement when submitting photos that have been taken on an iPhone, iPad, Android, or other handheld device

5.) There are two ways to submit your images:

  • Option 1: Attach up to 10 JPGs individually, up to a maximum total of 35 MB.
  • Option 2: Provide a link to an online folder that contains ONLY the photos you wish to enter, up to 10 images total. A Google Drive or Dropbox link is preferred.


JPG submissions are only used for the initial review process. For images in consideration for final printing, a full resolution file will be requested from the photographer (300dpi, TIFF). The images may be cropped to fit the calendar format so we do prefer full-size uncropped files.
