Calling all photographers! Enter the Firewise plant calendar contest!

Blog Post created by laurenbackstrom Employee on Feb 3, 2012

NFPA is asking photo enthusiasts to submit photographs of Firewise plants from around the country (and your backyard)! Winning entries will be used in the 2013 Firewise Calendar.

Entrants may submit up to 10 unique and original photos of Firewise plants, flowers, trees, shrubs, and grasses found in their region. To create a visually exciting and informative calendar, each photo should highlight the plant in its natural setting. A total of 14 photos will be selected representing each month, and the back and front covers. 

The calendar will serve as a resource for homeowners, landscapers, planners and others involved in home building and maintenance by highlighting a different plant, shrub or grass, along with its name, a description, growth pattern and area of origin from various regions across the country that can be used to both beautify a home’s landscape and help resist embers from a wildfire. 

The deadline for submission is: March 16, 2012. Read the official rules and enter now!
