The GCA 2023 Calendar Submissions
Closing date 15th February 2022.
Following the success of the previous GCA Calendars, the GCA 2023 Calendar is to proceed featuring a further series of wonderful Gardens and Flowers etc. taken in Australia.
The success of the Calendar relies on affiliate members submitting wonderful images of Australian garden scenes – or flower images etc as small “fillers”.
The simple Rules for Submission of Australian Garden Photos

2. ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE FROM MEMBERS OF AN AFFILIATED CLUB OR GROUP or a REGISTERED “OUR GARDENS” MAGAZINE SUBSCRIBER.
3. Only digital images can be submitted in JPEG or RAW format at a minimum 2MB file size for consideration for main Calendar month images.
Minimum 500Kb file size images can be sent if you are sending them as “fillers”.
4. Images must be in landscape format to fit the Calendar layout.
5. There is no limit to the number of images a member can submit.
6. Digital images are to be submitted either:
– via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, as attachments to the email. Multiple emails may be used to send a series of large file size images.

7. Each submission must include:

Each photo selected for the Main Calendar Pages will attract a non-exclusive copyright fee of $100 paid to the photographer, by Bartel Calendars – refer to the GCA website for copyright details.
There is no payment to photographers for images used as small “fillers”, but the photographers name, and State, is printed on the photo.
Images are destroyed after the completion of the Calendar year to protect the copyright of the photographers.
