    Cool 2014 Calendar Contest


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Time for 2014 Calendar contest.

    GU is a general non specialized forum, so anything goes, so feel free to submit any gecko photo. Make sure it's well focused and crisp and that it meets the minimum resolution requirements.

    2014 Calendar will consist of 13 images (1 cover and 12 for individual months)

    All proceeds will go toward supporting GeckosUnlimited.

    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 Oct 20, 2013 at midnight

    Prizes:
    In addition to being featured in the calendar, the top 3 voted images will receive free copies of the calendar.

    Very Important:[/U]
    Please email any calendar entries only to
    2014@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 2014@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 minimum requirements are
    11.5 x 9 in. (trimmed on calendar to 11 x 8.5 in.) at 200dpi. This translates to an image 2300x1800 at 200dpi. In other words the bigger the better. I can always size it down for you. (template here) If needed I will size the images, please don't do it yourself. Send the original files.

    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 Geckos Unlimited 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 GeckosUnlimited activities.

    4. Submitted image must be your own work. Gecko 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 GU username:


    6. Maximum 2 photos per member. Select your best entries and do not send more then 2 images.

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

    Have FUN & GOOD LUCK!


    NOTE: Only 1 calendar per winner. In other words, If you manage to feature 2 photos in the calendar, you'll still receive only one calendar shipped to you.

    Get your pics in EARLY folks! Every year we end up having people bummed out because they missed the deadline. Don't procrastinate!!! The more entries that we have, the better the calendar will be!
    Let's see some of the more rare species!

    I'm getting some crappy entries that are way to small, make sure you send the minimum required size

    Hey I don't completely understand how the size and dpi work together but I had a quick question to try to make sure I don't send you a crappy photo

    My DPI is 300. Do I still need to work at the 2300 x 1800?

    Just be sure to send the original files the same as they come off your camera. Marty or whoever else is going to do the quick edits can change the resolution easily enough themselves. Almost every camera nowadays takes photos larger than the specified dimensions, so as long as you don't do any editing yourself, you should be perfectly fine.
