You will join Chicken Run Rescue and United Poultry Concerns in recognizing May as International Respect for Chickens Month by capturing the beauty, joy, intelligence, dignity, agility and zany exuberance of your birds in a photograph. Each year, twelve winning photos will be published in a calendar and winners will receive a free calendar. All calendar sales proceeds will enable Chicken Run Rescue to continue helping chickens for another year.
Send HIGH RESOLUTION DIGITAL PHOTOS to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name, title or bird’s name, address, phone number and email address. If you have a story to tell about their rescue, favorite friends or pastimes, please share in 140 words or less.
Photograph everyday activities that are natural for your birds - no costumes, staged stunts or props. Chicken Run Rescue reserves the right to decline any images that conflict with our mission to promote the adoption of homeless chickens as companion animals and discourage breeding or buying. There are never enough homes for displaced animals.
Submission Deadline: May 30, 2011
Voting: Ongoing thru May 30, 2011
Winners Announced: early summer 2011
