Call for photos for the 2025 Open Spaces Calendar and Nature Note Cards.

Submit your nature photos of Lincoln by August 9th, 2024.

Each year the LLCT/RLF produces the Open Spaces of Lincoln Calendar and Nature Note Cards, which are a stunning showcase of Lincoln’s rural landscapes, abundant wildlife, and recreational activities. All proceeds benefit the conservation, stewardship, and educational activities of the LLCT.

Email submissions to or mail a flash drive to LLCT, PO Box 10, Lincoln MA.

Photographers of all ages and levels are welcome to participate and submit as many photos as they would like.

Photo guidelines:

  • Must be taken in Lincoln, MA.
  • Can be from any year and any season.
  • Should capture the rural and natural landscape, waterways, plants, or wildlife of Lincoln. While eligible, photographs that strongly feature man-made structures and buildings or domesticated animals may not be prioritized.
  • May not be altered or manipulated beyond minor touch ups such as removal of dust, cropping, minor adjustments to color and contrast, and so forth
  • Can be shot as landscape or portrait. Due to aspect-ratio requirements, landscape oriented photos are best suited to monthly pages.
  • JPEG or PNG
  • highest quality possible
  • watermark-free. Photographers will be credited below each photo in the publication

Photo files must follow this naming convention:



This ensure that we attribute photographs correctly. Submissions that do not follow this naming convention will be asked to resubmit photos.



We recommend that photographers submit at least 5 photos. A set of photos with a wide range of seasons and subject matter enables the editors to more easily match great photos with an appropriate month.
