5) Full resolution images must be at least 8 MP (~3504x2336) large in order to qualify.
6) Please send your full resolution images as soon as possible as this will reduce the delay time between formatting and production.

awesome entries guys! only a week left for submissions!
  • #11
7 entries? We need more than that! :)

I think maybe the one entry per contestant scared everyone off. Perhaps a number of folks can't decide on just one. Maybe loosen that restriction to 3 or 5 or something and I bet the pics will flood in.

Also there was no talk about this until last week. Better marketing next year would help a lot.
  • #14
I think that rule is there because last year people complained that folks had won more than once...
If you own a calendar from last year... they was a monthly reminder. So next time, get a calendar! ;) AND this is going to be the 4th year... people should know by now, honestly.

I joined last year and I didn't get a calendar because i didn't have the money. Also I had no idea when the calendar contest was going to occur. Something as simple as making this thread a sticky during the contest would help a lot I think. Maybe send a forum wide email to everyone and let them know about it. Just some food for thought. If you guys want to open it up to more entries per person let me know I've got tons of photos I'd like to enter.

As in how to attach it or are you getting an error trying to send it due to size? If it's because of size another member used a service called "WeTransfer.com" I don't know if it's free or what though.

You can open a flickr acount, upload the photo and give the passwd to amphirion, he will download the full size picture from there.

WeTransfer is free. Just go to their home page, enter the email address you are sending to, enter your return address. Upload the files. Up to 2 GB. Very user friendly and intuitive. Recipient gets an email with a URL to download the files, you get a notice when the files were downloaded. No accounts to open, no spam. Files are deleted after x number of days. It took me more time to type this message than it would to get your files on the way with WeTransfer (excluding upload time).
