2015 Raptor Calendar

Photo Upload Instructions

If you have attended a raptor shoot at Raptor, Inc. this year, you are elegible to submit to the calendar project.

Each winner will receive a copy of the 2015 Raptor, Inc. Calendar.

Winning will consist of one of your images being used in the 2015 calendar.

Grand Prize winner will have their image chosen for the cover, and will have the privilege of releasing a bird into the wild or given the opportunity to witness and photograph a release.

We hope you will participate and that your images will be selected for use in the 2014 Raptor Calendar.  2013 cover winner, Vickie Villavicencio, released a red tail hawk and loved the experience.
