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".

Even though it missed the Kiting Magazine winter issue, the AKA and the Kite Trade Association will once again hold a Poster Contest for use during Kite Month 2013. The rules for this contest are:

•   Poster must contain AKA, KTAI and NKM logos. (These can be copied from the National Kite Month website www.nationalkitemonth.org.)
•   Poster should have spaces at the bottom for an organizer to write in:
   Event Name _______________
   Date & Time _______________
   Location __________________
   Contact __________________
   Sponsor __________________
•   Poster elements should be appropriate for 8.5x11 inches.
•   Color is preferred.
•   Format should be .doc or .jpg.
•   Entries must be original art work/photos of the entrant.
•   All submissions will become property of the AKA.
•   Entries must be submitted by January 24, 2013 to.

There will be two categories judged, adults and children. The prize for the winning poster in each category will be $100 in cash. For questions email Admin@NationalKiteMonth.org. For further information go to the National Kite Month topic on the AKA Public Forum, http://aka.kite.org/kitetalk-forum/default-forum/18-national-kite-month.

Your sample full-size poster images at

8.5x11 at 300 ppi.

Do you want allowances for full bleed cropping?

Are you saying only the poster is the AKA property
or are you claiming photos used as your property also?

From Mike:
__________________________

John,
 
Full bleed cropping? Sounds painful. Is that something done in the emergency room? Or do I have all wrong and it’s done in a wheat field just before harvest?
 
About the photos used in posters – By submitting a poster with a photo to the poster contest, the submitter relinquishes ownership of the poster and allows the AKA to use the poster any way it sees fit. The AKA cannot give John Chilese a royalty (should he be the winner) for each poster printed and or published. The NKM committee would have the right to make modifications to the poster/photo, such as in the positioning of AKA and KTAI logos or fill-in spaces. The AKA would not be obligated to put a photographer acknowledgment in the poster. Also, NKM would retain submissions for possible use as a poster in a later years for National Kite Month.
 
The AKA would have no claim on the actual photo used in the poster, and would not restrict the photographer from using the image elsewhere if he/she desires.
