Photo Contest

THIRD ANNUAL WILD ROCKIES CALENDAR PHOTO CONTEST!

Calling all WRFI alumni and instructors! We are thrilled to announce that we are accepting submissions for our THIRD ANNUAL WILD ROCKIES CALENDAR PHOTO CONTEST!

We’ve seen some phenomenal images from our courses over the years. We want to create a calendar that not only shows off the photographic talents of our students and instructors, but that also allows us to show the rest of our community some of the stunning places we’ve visited. Please consider submitting your favorite WRFI photo before August 31, 2022 for a chance to be featured in WRFI’s 2023 calendar! WRFI’s 2023 calendar will be available for purchase in November 2022.

You will retain all rights to your original image. However, by submitting your image to this contest, you grant the Wild Rockies Field Institute (WRFI) permission to publish the image, royalty-free, on WRFI’s online platforms and to reproduce the image for outreach, promotional, and fundraising purposes.
