In honor of Blue Heron Review’s 1 year anniversary, we are having a photography contest for the Winter/2015 online issue! The best 2 photos of a Great Blue Heron will be chosen, to be published in our 3rd issue at the end of February 2015.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: November 15, 2014
Please send up to THREE, high-resolution photo files in either jpg or png format. File size should be as large as possible. Color, black and white, and digital art photos are all acceptable. If we have a large number of high quality, fine art photos, some images may be saved for publication in a future issue of Blue Heron Review. Please send a 100-150 word bio/artist statement, with any links to your blog/website, in the body of the e-mail. (At this point, we are unable to pay our contributors, but Blue Heron is very proactive in terms of promoting the work of our writers and artists via social media. We reserve first publication rights. All rights return to the author/artist after publication. All photographs include a photo credit line, as well as a longer bio with links at the end of the magazine issue.)
Response Time: Blue Heron endeavors to respond in a timely fashion. Due to the increase in submissions for our 3rd issue, a considered response can take between 8-10 weeks. Please do not write to ask about the status of your submission unless you have not heard from us within 10 weeks.
Please use the title “Photography Contest/Your Last Name” in the subject line of your e-mail. Send all photo contest submissions by November 15, 2014 to:
I look forward to seeing a beautiful array of blue herons winging their way to our in-box!
