In another thread, a calendar was talked about. The DBA has done them in the past and its certainly to late to do anything for a 2011 calendar, but we can get a jump on a 2012 calendar.

Since there is no company chosen as of yet for the 2012 calendar, I don't have any image specs, but those super huge photos that make people comment with "resize" or something to that effect are the ones that would be suitable. I can do some cropping if requested. even some slight color correction, but we simply can't make a good photo from a bad photo. Blurry photos will never look clear. Grainy photos will never look smooth. you get the idea.

So, until I am told what the printing company has to have for a minimum resolution, begin thinking about your photo opportunities this coming buggy season. Try an artistic approach if you like.

At the moment, the following rules apply:
* The photo must be taken by yourself and by your submission, you are allowing its use in a calendar as well as on this site. That should go without saying...
* No people in the photos. We want photos of Buggys only. We have no provisions for model release forms here, so plan your photo around it.

As you guys can see,we have enough pictures now to put together a calendar, so we are on the right track. Pre-sales are a little weak for my taste, but if anyone is able to spread the word to clubs, other web sites, etc... go for it.
