    Default 2012 Calendar Contest


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    CONTEST EXTENDED TO JUNE 3rd @ midnight.


    This year we're going to start this contest much earlier. Last time I really wanted to print the calendars on high gloss paper and make them in a larger format and make the photos really pop, however the printing company was so swamped with orders that we couldn't get in onto their production schedule. This time around, we should be in good shape! Fingers Crossed

    Let's start the 2012 GeckosUnlimited Calendar Contest!

    2012 THEME: Amazing photos. Past contests have not disappointed, given higher quality printing, this time around we should make an even more stunning calendar!

    2012 Calendar will consist of 13 images (1 cover and 12 for individual months). All proceeds will go toward supporting GU.

    This was the cover of our 2011 Calendar:



    Each photo will be captioned with the scientific name of the gecko and the name/username of the person who took the photo.

    Deadline: Sun May 22nd, 2011 at midnight

    Prizes:
    Top 3 voted images will receive copies of the calendar.

    Very Important:
    Please email any calendar entries only to
    2012@geckosunlimited.com. If you reply to my emails or send it elsewhere your photo probably will not make the list. There's a script running on the 2012@geckosunlimited.com so use only that address for sending photos.

    You may post a sized version (not larger then 640px in width) of your image in this thread for all to see. I will select the final choices and we will vote for the cover and the 12 images together. This is always very hard.

    Don't forget #5 below!

    Contest rules.

    1. Images must be submitted un-sized and at maximum available resolution. The requirements are
    12.5 x 10.5 in. (trimmed on calendar to 12 x 10 in.) at 200dpi. This translates to an image 2500x2100 at 200dpi. If needed I will size the images, please don't do it yourself. Send the original files, but make sure the photos meet the criteria. Do not send smaller photos as those will not be considered. To see size of your photo, right click on the image and click properties.

    2. Orientation of the Image must be 'landscape'. Portrait entries will not be considered. (See example here)

    3. Once you submit an image you give GU the right to manipulate it/size it/crop it and alter it in any way we want in order to use it, and also re-use the image at a later time in conjunction with other GU activities.

    4. Submitted image must be your own work. Plant does not have to be from your own collection. Use of other or copyrighted material will result in immediate disqualification

    5. When you submit the photos please be sure to include the following information.
    Scientific Name:
    Your Real Name:
    Your GeckosUnlimited username:


    6. 1 photo per member. Select your best entry and do not send more then 1 image. Previously we allowed more photos, but lets give equal chances to everyone this time

    7. Please make sure the photos are free of any watermarks or text.

    8. Lets make it clear this time. No artificial objects near your animal. We want NatGeo style shots here, no animals on paper towels or next to a plastic watering dish or sitting on your cell phone.

    Have FUN & GOOD LUCK!
