It’s not JUST a photo contest…your pictures help us spread our message.
The 2018 Photo Contest is now closed for entries – but you can vote for your favorites! View gallery link at the bottom of this page.
Cal-IPC’s outreach and education efforts rely heavily on photos to show the devastating impacts weeds have on our natural communities. Without the great pictures our members share with us, our message would be much harder to convey.
Anyone can enter! Your photos may be used in future Cal-IPC outreach materials such as our website, brochures, or reports (with photographer credit, of course).
Entries will be displayed at the Cal-IPC Symposium in November and symposium attendees will vote for their favorite photo.
Photos should be in JPEG or TIFF format and at least 300 dpi. Larger file sizes means prettier pictures!
Submissions are limited to 6 per photographer.
Photos will be judged twice. Once by the online community, and once again by popular vote at the 2018 Cal-IPC Symposium, Nov. 7-10. To avoid voter bias at the Symposium, please do not include watermarks on your photo submissions.
Not taking any pictures, just want to vote?
Come to the Symposium and vote for your favorite!
Can’t make it to the Symposium? We’ll be awarding a prize for the photo with the most online votes, too! Between Sept 15 – Sept 29, this page will include a “vote” option. OR go to our Facebook page and choose Vote on the Cal-IPC Photo Contest tab, under “campaigns.” One vote is allowed per IP Address.
This is our fourth year using an online contest. If you have any trouble entering, uploading, voting, or whatever don’t hesitate to contact Cal-IPC.
