Calling all documentary photographers! Blue Earth's submission deadline for the next round of reviews is only two weeks away: January 20th, 2012.

Please note: our guidelines have recently been updated. The January 20th deadline is the only currently scheduled call for submissions in 2012.

Blue Earth sponsors photographic projects whose goal is to educate the public about endangered cultures, threatened environments, and important social issues. We are primarily interested in work that is educational and informational in nature and will consider proposals of any geographic scope involving the photographic medium. Our standard agreement sponsors a project for two years.

Blue Earth offers fiscal accountability to the projects we accept for sponsorship. As a non-profit organization with 501(c)3 status, Blue Earth is eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions from private foundations, individuals, or other entities. Along with this fiscal accountability, we also offer other services. When you join our community of photographers, we offer mentorship throughout the life of your project sponsorship, publicity on our blog and newsletters, help with PR and marketing, and more depending upon individual needs.

Check out our updated submission guidelines for more details.
