There's still time to submit your photos for ONDA's 2011 Wild Desert Calendar. Each year ONDA produces a beautiful full-size calendar with photographs taken by people like you. The chosen photos will be put into our calendar, which we plan to release in August, 2010.

We are looking for photos of some of Oregon's most unique and solitary high-desert landscapes:

High priority areas are:

1. Badlands Wilderness Area
2. Alder Springs or Steelhead Falls WSA
3. South Fork Crooked River WSA
4. Owyhee Canyonlands
5. Bully Creek/ Malheur River
6. Gerry Mountain WSA
7. Spring Basin Wilderness Area
8. John Day River, especially Cathedral Rock & Horse Heaven Proposed Wilderness
9. Sutton Mountain & Pat's Cabin WSA
10. Native wildlife/wild flower photos
11. Hart Mountain Refuge
12. Area between Hart Mountain and Sheldon Refuge

Here are the submission guidelines:
Please submit no more than 10 of your highest quality photographs. The guidelines for submission are as follows:

Transparencies: 35mm, 2 1⁄4, 6x7 or 4x5.
Digital images: Minimum 300dpi 9"x12" images in .tiff format
Mandatory: include printed proof sheet(s) with 2"x3" (or larger) thumbnail images for digital submissions.

Please send large-scale, horizontal, landscape images (which may include people as small elements) for the large (9x12) full-page sheets, and smaller scale vertical or horizontal (details of flowers, wildlife, etc.) for the inset images on the calendar grid. Be sure that a description of each photograph is provided, either on the photograph itself, or on a separate sheet with corresponding numbers.

The calendar will be printed in CMYK, which has a smaller color gamut than the RGB palette. Therefore please be conservative with saturation increases and do not sharpen files.
Please include a self-addressed envelope with your submission to ensure proper protection and return of your images.

Please submit images by no later than June 1st, 2010. Images can be submitted to:
