Submit your photos for our 2018 calendar

By Kerri Sorrell on March 6, 2017 in Blog

Every year, INHF celebrates the natural beauty found all over Iowa in a 12-month nature calendar. We love highlighting the best of what Iowa has to offer — scenery, wildlife and spectacular natural moments. The best part about it? Seeing our great state through your eyes — and lens.

2017 INHF calendar

The calendar photo submission period for the 2018 INHF calendar is officially open! We’re looking for your best shots of all the Iowa land, water and wildlife you love. 

If you're interested in submitting photos for consideration before the July 2 deadline, check out our calendar submission tips and guidelines. Any further questions can be directed to me at

We can't wait to see your shots!

Calendar submission guidelines

We prefer to receive high-quality photos on a flash drive or disk accompanied by a color contact sheet.

Digital images should:

  • Be JPEG, TIF or RAW format (we prefer TIF or RAW format for use in the magazine and calendar)
  • Be at least 300 dpi
  • Include caption and photographer information in the file info

Contact sheets should include:

  • Photographer’s name and contact information
  • Notes of when and where each photo was taken, as well as any specific species information that you know of (this is very helpful for INHF staff)

Please submit photos to:
