2018 calendar voting
« on: October 27, 2017, 02:32:22 PM »
Start by going here: http://www.bigbendgallery.com/uploads/files/cal2018/index.htm or scrolling through the images below. Click on any of the thumbnails to view the full-size version. Pick your top 13 (you might want to write them down), then come here and vote. Voting will end Thursday 11/9. Each member gets to vote once and results will not be shown until after the voting is finished. Once you vote you can't change your vote, so pick carefully. Good luck to all the BBC photographers!

Note: all images have been resized to save file space and reduce download time, so some image degradation may have occurred. Watermarks present on nominated photos will be removed whenever possible before being put in the calendar.

I'm sure it violates every known or imagined rule for BBC calendar image selection, but given the last-minute notice of Fred Keller's death, is there any possibility of including a photo of him in the voting? A combo of Victor/Fred would seem to be in order.

Not against the idea, but there may be issues with things like a model release, permission from the family, etc. On the other hand, if it were done, it would be nice gesture to send a little cash from the sales (and a card or letter) to the family. They probably could use it.

For any winning photographers, I'll be needing a high-resolution copy of your photo(s). The optimum size is 3215x2215 pixels. I'll also need a title and attribution (i.e. copyright by ...).
