Submit Photos to the Chicken Run Rescue Calendar Contest

From The Chicken Run Rescue Facebook page:

Submissions are now being accepted for this year’s Chicken Run Rescue Photo Contest. You will join Chicken Run Rescue and United Poultry Concerns in recognizing May as International Respect for Chickens Month by capturing the beauty, joy, intelligence, dignity, agility and zany exuberance of your birds in a photograph.

Each year, twelve winning photos will be published in a calendar and winners will receive a free calendar. All calendar sales proceeds will enable Chicken Run Rescue to continue helping chickens for another year.

TO ENTER: Send high resolution digital photos to Include your name, title or bird’s name, address, phone number and email address. If you have a story to tell about their rescue, favorite friends or pastimes, please share in 140 words or less.

CONTEST RULES Photograph everyday activities that are natural for your birds – no costumes, staged stunts or props. Chicken Run Rescue reserves the right to decline any images that conflict with our mission to promote the adoption of homeless chickens as companion animals and discourage breeding or buying. There are never enough homes for displaced animals. Submission Deadline: May 30 Winners Announced: early summer.

RELEASE AGREEMENT Submission of photographs implies acceptance of the following terms: Entrants in the Chicken Run Rescue Photo Contest retain all copyrights and other equivalent rights to their entered photographs. However, Entrants give Chicken Run Rescue the right to reproduce and publish their photographs and name in a calendar and in advertising to promote sales of the calendar. In all cases where such photographs and names are used, Entrants give Chicken Run Rescue the right to do so without obtaining the photographer’s further prior permission and without offering any compensation in any form except for the token prize of one free calendar.
