2006 Calendar - Get your photos in! - Deadline Sept 26

Thanks to all of you last years calendar was a great success. The quality of cars submitted was amazing! So let's do it again, but this year I'm starting a little earlier. :)

OK, this is the official call for entries for the 2006 Calendar. Please start gathering your best photos and submit them no later than Monday Sept 26, 2005.

Then we'll all vote and the top 12 will be used. If you were in the calendar last year you're welcome to submit again, but not the same photo. Also, submit a couple shots if you aren't sure which is best, but I'll only be able to use one for the final voting.

If your photos are digital email me at 1968gtcs@gmail.com (has more space than my normal email) If you have prints you need me to scan then mail them to me at:

Jon Hanna
P.O. Box 16775
Phoenix, AZ 85011-6775

OK, here's the catch.. Photos have to be a minimum size to be able to print cleanly on a full size calendar. If it's a digital image it needs to be 1800x1200 pixels minimum (obviously bigger is better). Basically a 2.0 Megapixel or better digital camera will work. Any lower resolution and they just won't print well. Even the largest photos in the Gallery are too small. Sorry! And please don't take a smaller pic and change the resolution to bump it up to 1800x1200. It doesn't work that way unfortunately. The original needs to be at that resolution.

For those that missed it last year, here's a shot of how it turned out:

Thanks in advance for all the great photos I expect to get! :)

My brother's (PB gtcs) AC Cobra is in the cobra country link attached from Admin. I am the bad example of how not to take a good picture.

Re:2006 Calendar - Get your photos in!

I know we still have a couple of weeks, but at the moment we only have 5 entries. If you plan on sending in photos please let me know or post here so I can determine if the calender will even go forward this year.

Thanks!

I'll try and borrow a decent camera and send you a couple of pics to choose from, hopefully this weekend if it isn't raining.

Jon

How is the best way to get pictures to you? I think the higher resolution photo's will be to big to email. How is everyone else sending them??

Lastly, is the 28th THE cutoff date??

Re:2006 Calendar - Get your photos in!

My email address can handle at least a 10 MB file, so don't worry about file size. Send the largest you have.

If I go too much past the 28th I run into problems getting things put together early enough for the holidays. I might be able to go a day or two later, but would prefer not to if I can help it.
