coverimage2014Images of Native Flora & Fauna to be Included in 2015 Edition.

The Blowing Rock Tourism Development Authority is issuing a photo call for images to be included in the Town’s 2015 Community Calendar. The calendar’s photo theme will be “flora & fauna,” and will include images of flowers, plants and animals that are primarily native or unique to the Blue Ridge. Sixteen images submitted for the publication will be selected; one photo for each month, one for the calendar cover and three smaller images for the information sections and back cover. Photographers of all levels welcome to submit!


Details of the call for photo submissions are as follows:

  • Images of flowers, plants and animals that are primarily native or unique to the Blue Ridge are requested.
  • Photographers may submit one to eight images. Please submit no more than two images per season, and specify the season for each entry when submitting.
  • Submit high-resolution, horizontal, digital images only (must print to 7.5 x 10 inches with clarity). Send to Amanda Lugenbell, amanda@visitblowingrock.com.
  • Submission deadline is Monday, September 29.


Calendar images will be selected by vote of Town employees and all submitting photographers will be notified of results by email or phone. There is no payment or prize available for inclusion, though photographers will be credited along with a title of their choosing for the images. Blowing Rock Community Calendars feature festival dates and local civic events. They are distributed free around Thanksgiving each year and will be available at the Blowing Rock Visitor Center and Blowing Rock Town Hall.
