It's that time again!  Time to start routing through photos of your Vette (or taking new ones) to submit for consideration in our 2016 C3VR Member Calendar.  Here are the details:

PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS VERY CAREFULLY!

We will be putting together a 2016 C3VR Member Calendar. It will be a 12 Month Calendar featuring C3VR Members' C3s!  They would be similar to the ones we've created here: http://stores.lulu.com/vrllc

We need your photos!!! 

Please read this ENTIRE post BEFORE submitting your photo. Especially the part about photo file quality!!

Submission deadline is 9/30/2015!

Rules for submission:
Follow these rules very carefully! If any rule is ignored or information requested is missing, your entry will be discarded.

All submissions will be reviewed and judged on the following criteria:
  1. Quality THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!!  The image file must be of a substantial quality in regards to DPI (eg. 300) and Resolution (eg. 1760x1168). The higher these numbers are, the better it will look when printed, especially on a calendar. You'll probably need a 2.1 megapixel camera or better, set at the highest quality setting possible.
    A good clue to picture size is the size of the photo file. If the file is greater than 2,000 bytes (or 2MB), then it is likely big enough. Any smaller, is likely unusable! 
    *** THIS IS THE NUMBER ONE REASON PHOTOS ARE NOT SELECTED!! *** If your photo is not the proper size, it will be rejected no matter how pretty it is!

  2. Artfulness - The image should be tasteful and free of anything that would detract from the Vette. For example, no people, no other cars, no business signs. Examples of good backgrounds are: open fields, a park, a tree-lined 2-lane road, your driveway, etc.

  3. Framing - Framed so that the entire Vette is in the picture. It can be taken from any angle.

  4. Scenery - The prettier the background, the better. Plus, keep in mind that we'd like to have season appropriate photos. For example, a background of trees turning color in the fall; trees and flowers blooming in the spring; snow covered roadway in the winter, american themed for May or July, holiday themed for Octoiber, November and December, etc. 
The more of these criteria that you meet, the more likely your photo will be used.


Submission directions:
  1. You may not submit an entry for the 2016 calendar if you were featured in the 2015 C3VR Member calendar. 
  2. You may send One (1) to Three (3) photos.
  3. In the body of your email, specify the following information:
    • Your C3VR Member Name and/or ID Number
    • Model Year
    • Exterior Color Name
    • Engine Type (eg. L48) and/or Size (eg. 350/174hp)
    • Any special type (eg. Collector's Edition, Silver Anniversary, etc)
    • Year Purchased
    • Where photo was taken, if you think it is worthy of mention
    • How you want your name to appear. 
    • How you want your location to appear.

If you have any questions, please email PM me


WHERE TO SEND YOUR SUBMISSION:

EMAIL your submission to:   CalendarREMOVETHIS@C3VR.com
MAKE sure to take out "REMOVETHIS" from the email address! This is for SPAM protection!


Submission deadline is 9/30/2015!

If you send an email to address above and it is not bounced back (returned) to you, then I DID receive it.  There is no need to send me a separate email asking if I got it.

If your submission does not get selected, you will NOT be contacted.  I simply do not have time to send everyone an email.  

If your submission IS selected, you may not be notified directly.  You will have to check the page that is created for ordering the calendar once it has been completed.

Thanks and good luck!

I only received 6 submissions that included files that were large enough to use. 
If you want to see a 2016 C3VR calendar, I need you to send in your photos now.  See the top of this thread for details!

I tried to submit a pic, but it had the name of one of our Supporting Vendors which isn't allowed. Disapprove So I cropped the name out and tried to submit it, but the file was to big or something not right. So since I'm not good with all this photo stuff I said "Bleep" it. 
So Adam, if you would or could be more helpful to some of us computer challenged folks I bet you would have one more pic for a calendar. After all you are an I.T. professional right? Wink

I can not offer you support for sending email. All I can recommend is that you not do anything to the original file and just email that directly.  I know lots of people have trouble sending the full size photo, especially when sending via a tablet (like iPad) because it automatically resizes it for you.  That doesn't work for files I need to send to the printer.    That takes care of photo file quality.  As for picture quality, the rules are there for a reason... to make the photos as professional looking as possible.  Sorry if that seems to picky, but it is that way for good reason.  

If I don't get enough submissions, there isn't much else I can do about it.  Hopefully people can come through with more.

I think the iPad piece was my issue since that's how I sent. I'll work on getting some better shots to you this weekend.

Haven't seen any updates and I don't see a 2016 calendar on lulu.com, so I assume no C3VR calendar this year?

Sadly, it looks like 2016 will have to be a year without a calendar.  Hopefully between the 2016 submissions and new ones for 2017 we can do a 2017 calendar.

Sorry.
