Default 2015 S2ki S2000 Calendar - Now taking orders!

Another year, another calendar!

// Ordering info:

The calendar will be $30 shipped to your door, USA only. To ship to other countries, shipping can get expensive, but I can work with you to see what we can accommodate.

I accept:

• Google Wallet, sorry no PayPal. Google Wallet is the fastest, all payments need to clear before the order is processed, so expect 10-12 business days to get a calendar. PM me for details. https://www.google.com/wallet/send-money/
• Money Order or check to me - PM me for my address = $30 - Checks need to clear - typically 5 business days before ordering.


Include your shipping address and quantity!


If you order, COPY AND PASTE, AND FILL THIS IN, IN A PM TO ME, AND/OR INCLUDE IT WITH YOUR CHECK:

screen name:
real name:
email address:
phone number:
calendar quantity:
shipping address:
Special instructions:
for example, "use (image name) for the cover", "swap June big pic for the cover"

ALSO

This worked last year so I will offer it again this year - if you want a custom image for the cover, I can change it. If you want your car on the cover, you can submit a high-quality image and I can make a one-off for you. Just add those instructions in the order and we can work out the details. Just PM me and we can discuss.


There are no returns, so be clear with instructions!





// Preview info:
Okay, the 2015 draft is complete! You can check it out here -

(updated 10 Nov)

I tried to use as many photos as possible - some just don't fit, or had some other issues.

Not everyone included byline info so I didn't include it across the calendar - if you submitted a photo but need a byline, let me know so I can edit/remove as necessary.

As always, the calendar will be $30 shipped to your door, USA only. To ship to other countries, things get expensive, but I can work with you to see what we can accommodate.

Also, since this has been working, I can swap any appropriate photo for the cover if you'd like. Either a different photo in the calendar or if you want to have your own, we can customize the calendar. Just PM me and we can discuss.

I plan to start orders after everyone has had time to view and respond - so probably a week from now.

Any questions, feel free to ask in this thread - thanks for the submissions!



// Submissions:
Currently, we're looking for suitable photos for the 2015 S2000 calendar:


About the calendar:

This is a full color, glossy calendar, ~10x13", for your favorite wall. Based on production costs, it will be $30 shipped to your door.

Last year I allowed custom covers for each calendar, and that worked well, so I will continue this practice for next year. Any calendar you order can have any submitted and approved S2000 on the cover provided it meets the quality standard for resolution and size. This means your submission can be a cover car if you choose!


About the photos and submissions:

We all want to see great shots of the S2000, so we have high standards for submissions.

• Photos can't just be "driveway" shots, no hose and bucket in the background. You need to be creative, artistic, and unique! At least find a scenic spot to take the pic!
• Photos need to meet a minimum resolution for print purposes. That minimum is "high resolution" - at least 150 dpi, in tif, png, jpg formats. Photos should generally by MB in size, not kb, to give you an idea. If you want to use a different format, PM me and I can see if it will work
• Don't obscure license plates or blur out parts of the image unless its for artistic purposes - we strive for "natural" images without obvious editing and watermarks, etc.
• If you submitted a photo for a previous calendar year and it wasn't used, yes you can submit it again - you may want to PM me and find out why it wasn't used
• Photos should be cropped "loose" - in previous years we have had some great submissions that we couldn't use because the image was already cropped too tight to the S2000, meaning there was no way for me to position the image within the constraints of the format
• Many submissions each year are the ubiquitous 1/4 front or 1/4 rear view, and we can only have so many similar poses in a calendar, so taking the time to do something different will count toward the submissions. Lots of great photos are not used because they are very similar to others at popular angles
• The calendar is not for profit, and stresses the love we have for our cars over such. Each car selected for the calendar may have a by-line with credit to the car's owner, the photographer if they are a different person, and some details about the car and where the photo was taken. No watermarks are allowed on the photos however. If its not your photo, ask the photographer to submit it or get written permission to submit it


How to make a submission (deadline is November 1) (will accept submissions until December 1 however)

• When you have some pics to submit, rename them with the following format:
"[member_name]-[real_name]-[image_name]-01.jpg"
• Email them to: s2ki09 @ gmail.com
• Include your screen name, your actual name, a brief description of the photo - location where it is, the car year, and significant visual mods like aftermarket wheels
• If a byline is required for the photo, let me know

• Photos have to be emailed for entry. This is your consent that they can be used in the calendar. Submitted photos will be available for viewing in a low-res format on Picasa. They will not be used for anything else, and I will remove them from Picasa upon request, although they will still be eligible for the calendar.


Here's the submissions so far - http://imgur.com/a/YnR6F#0


Some photos could not be used because:
- too low resolution
- watermarks
- not photos of your own car (need permission to use photos)

Can I submit photos I've taken of other member's cars?

Also, I'd like to upload all the photos to a Flickr album and send it via email. This would allow me to upload the full size file, along with a description, title, etc. Would the be okay?

I take it you'd rather have photos without watermarks?
