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 info@chickenrunrescue.org. Include your name, title or bird’s name, address, phone number and email address. Include a story in 140 words or less telling about their rescue, favorite friends or pastimes. Please send each photo with its story in a separate email. Enter as many photos as you like.

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: August 30, 2017

Winners Announced: Fall 2017
