Best Photo of the Month

We know many of you are out in the field, camera in hand, taking beautiful, interesting, awe-inspiring or just plain quirky images. They may be coffee-table-book-beautiful, show a field guide level of detail, or convey the sheer joy of mushrooming. Let’s share them! Enter your choice pics in the Fungus Federation’s Photo of the Month contest. Winning images (editor’s choice) will be posted on the FFSC website and may be used in a FFSC publication. Your images will not be used for commercial purposes.

Submitting Images

We will source images from those submitted on the FFSC Google Group as well as individually submitted images. Images can be submitted via email to bestphoto@@ffsc.us.

Technical Criteria

Please send an image that does not have EXIF metadata stripped off or just full-sized original image if you are unsure. Acceptable formats: anything but RAW files.

Information Required

  • Photographer’s name
  • Title for image, if any
  • Optional: Date, Latin Binomial
  • Give us few words about the collection if you’d like. Rough location, habitat, did you leave them in the field or bring home? If edible, how did you prepare them?
