Default 2014 Orchid Board Calendar Contest

2014 Calendar PHOTO contest.

As before, the best looking photos will make the calendar. If you have taken amazing orchid photos and they meet the minimum resolution requirements send them over. OB is a general non specialized forum, so anything goes, with the exception of NOIDS. You must be able to properly identify the orchid in the photo.

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

All proceeds will go toward supporting OB.

Few images of the 2012 Calendar:



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

Deadline: Sun Oct 20. 2013 at midnight **SHORT DEADLINE !!!**

Prizes:
In addition to being featured in the calendar, the top 3 voted images will receive free copies of the calendar.
Very Important:[/U][/B] Please email any calendar entries only to
2014@orchidboard.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@orchidboard.com so use only that address for sending in your photos please.

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
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. (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 orchid board 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 Orchid Board 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 OrchidBoard username:


6. 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.

OK, I thought I'd share what I submitted to get a little bit of a discussion going. Going for a black and white theme.

Only downside to allowing 2 submissions per person is that the odds increase of fewer folks getting to have bragging rights that they have a pic in the calendar.

Btw, didn't think we were supposed to "broadcast" what pictures one submits?..........

Marty's comments say we can add a small version here and we did the same last year also.
