Eagles’ Call seeks photos taken by Eagle Scouts

Eagle Scouts: Want to see one of your recent Scouting photos in print? The honor could be yours thanks to a page in Eagles’ Call magazine.

The “Closing Shot” feature highlights one lucky photographer’s work in the glossy-paged magazine. And because Eagles’ Call is only published four times a year, we select only a handful of the best images for this honor.

We’re looking for photos taken by an Eagle Scout that depict the “essence of Scouting.” What does that mean? Every Scout defines this differently, but it could be a photo from a recent Scouting event, a landscape that reminds you of a long-ago Scouting trip and much more.

Take a look at the photos below from past “Closing Shot” pages to get an idea of the kind of work highlighted so far.


If you have a photo you’d like for us to consider, please send it to eaglescoutmag@scouting.org. It helps to include your contact information and some details about the photo, such as where and when it was taken and why it’s meaningful to you. (Please keep files under 2MB.) We’ll contact you if your image is selected for our “Closing Shot” page.

Questions? Send them to the email address above or leave your queries in the comments for us to answer.

The top photo was taken by Eagle Scout Aaron Linsdau during his journey to the South Pole. Linsdau — whose work was featured in the Fall 2014 edition of Eagles’ Call — became the second American to travel solo on skis to the South Pole on Jan. 21, 2013.
