Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

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:

Please send your photos now.

You can send small photos for the ballot, as long as you have a large photo should your picture be chosen. The ballot just uses thumbnails.

We're already getting some very nice shots for the calendar ballot. Remember you can send in a thumbnail for now as long as you have a high res version available for the calendar.

Thumbnail perfect size:

220 wide by 165 tall (pixels)

The photos will be put onto a ballot where all pictures have been formatted to the same size. In some cases, I must edit the photos to remove time/date stamps or improve the quality of the picture.

The ballot will allow people to vote by number for their 12 choices while viewing them under practically identical conditions.

I don't believe we can achieve that Democratic level within Flikr. But I am open to being proven wrong. Thanks for your suggestion.  Smiley

The photo submission date is one week from this Friday.

I have received some truly wonderful entries and am looking forward to putting up the ballot. Don't be hesitant. Even if you've never sent in any photos. The Forum has shown us before how diverse our tastes and selections are.

Take a chance and send in your favorites.

Thanks to those who have already submitted.  Smiley
