Call to Photographers
Inviting Photographers to enter their images in the 3rd Annual Friends of Lili`uokalani Gardens Photo Calendar 2019 Contest that celebrates the centennial of Lili`uokalani Gardens in Hilo Hawai`i.
Theme: Celebrating the Crown Jewel of the Crescent City
Lili`uokalani Gardens is composed of four parks: the original Japanese-style landscape nicknamed Nihon Koen bounded by Banyan Drive and Lihiwai Street, Moku Ola (Coconut Island), Rakuen, and Isles. When the garden around Waihonu was built a hundred years ago, Hilo was known as The Crescent City.
Selected Photographs of the Gardens will be featured in the 3rd Annual Friends of Lili`uokalani Gardens Photo Calendar.
Proceeds from calendar sales will help fund the work of Friends of Lili`uokalani Gardens to improve and beautify the park. There is no entry fee for this contest.
The photographer whose image is chosen for the calendar cover will receive a free flight on Paradise Helicopters with Bruce Omori and Mick Kalber, award winning volcano photographers.
New work is encouraged. Images accepted in previous years are not eligible.
A photo credit will appear with each selected calendar image. Photographers featured in the Calendar will receive 2 free calendars for full page or 1 free calendar for side image.
Simple digital entry process:
