The GWTW calendar will once again be a group effort. We will be starting a little bit later this year. Cafepress doesn't even have the template yet, so no big deal.
Usually, I just copy the stuff from last year, but it's all gone so this will probably be updated several times.
1 The calendar is non-profit to anyone. All proceeds will go toward paying the Forum maintenance fees for GWTW.
2 Any member of the Forum is free to enter up to 6 photos (up from 5) for inclusion on the ballot.
3 Photos submitted must be at least 1200x1600 pixels without blowing them up in a processing program.
4 Kites must be the dominant theme of each photo.
5 Submittals will start on the 28th of September.
6 Submittals will end on the 9th of October, noon Forum time.
7 Email your photos to me directly.
8 Print size of photos will be 1800x2300 pixels full bleed with the center 1700x2200 pixels showing. So if you want to crop, that is the criteria.
9 Do NOT email photos before 28 September.
10 A ballot will be made for voting.
11 Each photographer and/or purchaser of one or more calendars gets to vote.
12 Your vote will count 1 time if you entered photos and once for each calendar you promise to buy. You will get to vote for up to 12 photos. Miss September will be a photo of Bambi with a kite that she will choose.
13 If you don't buy a calendar or submit photos, you don't get to vote.
14 If your picture is chosen, you will have your name and photo info on the picture. You will receive nothing beyond that. Nor will I for that matter.
15 More rules may be added, modified, deleted, whatever for any reason.
16 The Forum, in general, likes sport kites, water and sunsets.
17 Calendars will cost $5 more than Cafepress charges. In the past that has been $20,
Many Forum regulars have had photos on these calendars: Bob Matteo, Dave Sabilino, Frazer Worley, Randy Greenway, etc. There have been dozens of excellent shots contributed.
Good luck. I hope to see lots of beautiful shots.
Here are the past calendars for your inspection:
