For the Frogs
Assignment Open From
Apr 11 - May 13, 2016
They are jewels of brilliant colors that seem to glow as they catch the light. They are smaller than a dime and as big as a dinner plate.
These are not rare gemstones. They are frogs and their eye-popping appearances are not only exquisite, but aid their survival throughout the world.
Many species, including this lemur leaf frog, are critically endangered. Habitat destruction, disease, and demand from the pet trade to own their beauty have driven many frogs to the brink.
Save the Frogs Day is April 30. Let’s raise awareness to the plight of these amphibians across the globe through photos. Send us your finest shots of frogs.
Our editorial team will choose the best submissions based on appeal, composition, originality, and technical quality. We can consider a maximum of four submissions per contributor. A group of chosen shots for this assignment will be posted on this page, and some may even be featured.
