Photo Contest


Calling all WRFI alumni and instructors! We are thrilled to announce that we are accepting submissions for our SECOND 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, 2021, for a chance to be featured in WRFI’s 2022 calendar! WRFI’s 2022 calendar will be available for purchase in late October 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.
