Reno, Nevada (June 4, 2018) – Friends of Nevada Wilderness has extended the deadline for submitting photos for the 2019 Wild Nevada calendar to 5 pm on Friday, June 22. The popular calendar features stunning professional and amateur photos that showcase Nevada’s most wild and scenic places.
Tens of thousands of Wild Nevada calendars have been sold and distributed since the calendar was first produced in 2002. They are popular among Nevadans, and also as gifts to friends and relatives everywhere. “I would guess there are Wild Nevada calendars hanging on walls around the country and probably around the world, from rural kitchens to high-rise offices,” said FNW Associate Director Kurt Kuznicki, himself an avid photographer. “The calendars help people who don’t live here learn about and appreciate the beautiful solitude of Nevada’s wild places like we locals do.”
Photos must depict the wild side of outdoor Nevada, in other words, places where there are no visible signs of unnatural disturbances, such as roads, vehicles, and buildings. Photos can include people enjoying the wilderness setting, such as hikers, anglers, etc. Images are needed from around the state, north, south, east, west and all points in between. The complete description of acceptable photos and how to submit them can be found here.
A community-based selection committee made up of photographers, conservationists, and FNW supporters review the submitted photos and choose the final images for the calendar.
FNW does not pay photographers for their selected images, but provides credit and helps market the photographers’ work. Contributions to Friends of Nevada Wilderness are tax deductible.
The 2019 Wild Nevada calendar will be available at the FNW offices in September and in stores throughout the state in October. The calendar retails for $12.95 each with discounts for larger quantity purchases. All proceeds from the calendar benefit grassroots stewardship of wild public lands throughout Nevada.
