2016 Club Calendar

Postby IanH » Fri Oct 23, 2015 12:18 pm

The Calendar is enjoyed by the Club's many thousands of members throughout the coming year. It is included with the next edition of Soft Top in December and is distributed free to every member, our Club partners and sponsors.

The Calendar is made up entirely of members photographs and images are invited from every member no matter what level of photographic ability you have, from beginner to professional all images are welcome, using whatever photographic equipment you have, from smart phones to state of the art digital equipment, its the picture that matters. For 2016 the Calendar theme is Speed and Beauty, this can be interpreted in any way.

If selected for a month in the Calendar your image will be reproduced in upwards of 7500 calendars and if you have a great picture of your car from the past year that you would like to see in the calendar or you have looked at previous calendars and thought 'I can do better', then please send in your picture in!

The calendar would not be possible without members sending in pictures and pictures can only be selected from what is sent.

All that is asked is that images are of the highest possible resolution that you are able to submit, the higher the resolution of the image the better it is for printing in the calendar at A4 size.

Please email photographs to calendar@mx5oc.co.uk
Deadline for submission is Friday 6th November 2015, at 5pm. Only images submitted on or before this date can be considered.

How to send in your photograph

All images will be credited. We would like to continue to publish extra details about photos in the calendar, please try to give as much information 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
Because of the very tight production timescale and to assist with admin, before sending your pictures please could you rename the file with your own name e.g. DSC1234.jpg - becomes- ur_name.jpg, ur_name2.jpg etc

If you are not the photographer please provide their name also and please check they are happy for you to send the image. If your image goes forward for selection you will contacted to confirm information and permissions.

Only Club Members Vehicles or photographs can be featured.

Important Information, Guidelines and Technical requirements
Images should be the highest resolution possible
Please attach images to an email and send to calendar@mx5oc.co.uk
Please try to keep the single email message size below 9MB if your message is over this please try to send multiple emails, if your image is over this size please email us at calendar@mx5oc.co.uk for other file transfer options.
Original image files are requested.
Please do not edit out number plates, if your image is chosen your registration will not be published without your permission, obscuring your registration poorly may affect your image being chosen.
Overly altered, composite or edited images generally won't be used. The calendar is a photographic publication, open to all members.
Please do not send multiples of the same shot or with minor visual changes to only composure or angle, pick the one you think is best and submit it.
The Club is not able to pay for images used, applicable outlines for photographic submission can be found in STHT.
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, they will be considered automatically.
Because of the nature of the calendar only a limited number of pictures can make it in, it is not possible to use all the images submitted, but we truly appreciate all the images that are sent for consideration.

Additional copies
If you would like to order additional copies of the calendar, these will be available in a limited run via the Club's Online Store once published. If you would like further information about how to order additional copies and the prices please email store@mx5oc.co.uk
