2020 Club Calendar

The Club’s popular wall hanging calendar is included with the next edition of Soft Top Hardtop in December which is sent to every member, Club partner and sponsor with extra copies also available in the Club Store, around 9000 will be produced again this year.

The calendar is only possible because members send photographs and we invite all members no matter what level of photographic ability, from beginner to professional to send in pictures for consideration.

If you have taken a great picture of your car that you would love to see included then please send it in!

It’s important to note that being a calendar only a limited number of pictures can be chosen and we always try to balance across the seasons and generations of the car.

Unfortunately many images are also not able to go into the final selection because of a small number of technical reasons. These include:

· File too small/low resolution (<1MB) **this is the number 1 problem**

· Images in portrait or cropped to a shape that will not fit the A4 page

· Car too close to the edges of the picture outside the safe zone or another composure issue.

Please see guide on the MX-5 Owners Club UK forum for more information.

If you are going to go out to photograph something for the calendar in the next few weeks please take a moment look at our guide to taking a successful picture.


How to send in your photograph

All images will be credited. Please give as much as you can:

• Your Full Name

• Club Area

• Where and when the picture was taken - please try to briefly list any specific information about why you where there, why the picture was taken etc.

If you are not the photographer please provide their name and that they are happy for you to send the image.

Only Club Members Vehicles or photographs can be featured

Email photographs to calendar@mx5oc.co.uk

Deadline for submission is Sunday 10th November 2019.

Only images submitted on or before this date can be considered.

Important Information, Guidelines and Technical requirements

· Original image files are requested.

· Images should be the highest resolution possible.

· Please do not edit out number plates, poor editing may effect selection.

· Please do not send lots of the same shot - pick the one you think is best.

· The Club is not able to pay for images used, applicable outlines for photographic submission can be found in Soft Top Hardtop.

· Images submitted for the Calendar in previous years or to Soft Top Hard Top in the past 12 months do not need to be sent again.

We truly appreciate all the images that are sent for consideration and we can’t do the Calendar without them, and like all good competitions you need to be in it to win it! And you need to send in a picture for a chance for it to be featured.

Many thanks.
