2016 Shutterbugs Calendar Photo Contest

  • Sep 20, 2015 · 12:00 PM

Open to PAID MEMBERS ONLY

The premise of the challenge is that there will be 12 themes and members will have a chance to submit 2 photos per theme.

SEPARATE Albums have been created for each theme.

Photos can be submitted into the theme albums at any time and we encourage you to submit early. Deadline for entries is Sept. 20, 2015.
Photos have to be taken in[masked]

NOTE: rules are subject to change to meet any issues that may arise

PLEASE NOTE:
If you submit a photo into a themed album and later determine that you have a photo that you think is superior to the one that you have submitted you can replace it. HOWEVER, you must delete your prior submissions(s) before posting the new one(s). This can occur as many times as you want as long as you have only 2 photos per theme (2 photos in each album).

By submitting early you will encourage others to shoot!!
Please submit them into the appropriate albums, you will have to look for the albums under the “PHOTOS” tab.

Special thanks to Mario @ Alpine Press for offering to print the calendars for us.  
Layout of the calendar has not yet been determined.

  • Jay T.

    I am impressed with all the talent out there. I am also grateful I didn't have to select the winners. Thanks Kaye and Laurice for putting in the time and effort to do all this, and for making it fun. Well done everyone who showcased their pictures. Thanks for sharing.

    And congrats to all the winners

    Definitely. I second Bill Settle's comment. Thanks for all the work Kaye and Laurice for organizing this contest, picking the winners and creating the calendar.

    September 24, 2015

  • Loretta

    Fantastic work!! Congrats to all!! Photo's to aspire to.

    September 24, 2015

  • Laurice B.

    Picking the photos was the hardest thing to do. There were so many strong images and the images that we picked were not necessary the strongest image a person entered. So only picking one image per person was challenging.
    Thanks to everyone for making the group so great
    Cheers

    • Bill S.

      Congrats to all the winners & I'm sure everyone involved thanks the judges for the effort that went into not only setting this up but also for the time taken to do the judging.

      1 · September 24, 2015

  • Laurice B.

    We would like to thank everyone for their submissions into the Shutterbugs Calendar Photo Contest. We will be announcing the photos that will be included in the calendar very soon, so stay tuned.

    For those of you who will have photos in the calendar, you will receive a calendar at no cost. For those who want a calendar there will be a pre-order posted which will include the cost of the calendars. Please note that the cost of a calendar will be the actual cost of printing the calendar which is yet to be determined.
    Thanks again
    Your organizing committee

    Nothing like a deadline to ensure action. I've been putting this one off, ever for looking at the pictures, and then noticed the deadline is suspiciously like today! Good pictures everyone. Made me think, made me laugh, and made me pleased to be a member of this group! Yay team!

    2 · September 20, 2015

    • Jay T.

      What a great email. Thanks Kaye! And thanks for starting a club that makes enthusiastic events happen!

      September 21, 2015

    • Wilma

      When do they announce the winners? :)

      September 23, 2015

  • Al P.

    I gather we do not have a place to meet today and the event is cancelled or is it still be decided?

    September 20, 2015

    • Bruce P.

      It is a online contest. I think there will be a vote soon.

      September 20, 2015

    • Kaye

      Laurice and I will go through the entries and declare the winners very soon!

    So where do I sign up to be a paid member

    August 31, 2015

    • Kathy

      Hi Kaye, was Sept 1 the deadline for 2015? I see it was Sept 15 last year. Just thought I would add a few more photos to some categories I missed if there was still time.

      September 5, 2015

    • Kaye

      Hi Kathy, yes go ahead. I have extended the deadline to Sept 20 for now.

      September 5, 2015

  • deb

    So the photos are for the 2016 calender, but the deadline is Sept 2015?

    August 21, 2015

    • Kaye

      yes, we need time to get them ordered in time for 2016

      August 22, 2015

  • Kaye

    Since we didn't receive a lot of submissions for this year, we have decided to move it to next year and try to create a Shutterbugs calendar for 2016. We'd like to see if we can find a non-profit organization that would be interested in selling our calendar as part of their fund raiser. It will be really cool if we can use our talents to help out the community!

    Continue to take lots of photos, and post your submissions. If you have already submitted photos, you have the choice of leaving them or submit new ones, but make sure it is still a max of 2 submissions per album.

    To give you an idea of printing costs, it is about $15/each, or $10/ each if we can order over 50. This price is subject to change.

    August 17, 2014

    • Rick W.

      Maybe you need an "early bird" prize to encourage entries?

      May 1, 2015

    • Steven L.

      I think maybe people are waiting til the last minute to submit. I know I was going to wait til the last week to submit my images since I would constantly have new images to consider for this and only want to batch submit once.

    As my holidays start three days earlier can photos be submitted in advance.

    April 20, 2015

    • Kaye

      Photos can be submitted any time before the sept 1, 2015 deadline. Make sure you have paid your membership fees before submitting.

      April 20, 2015

    • clayton h.

      Thanks. Being new I'm still sorting it all out. :)

      April 20, 2015

  • Dee

    Thought I was on the wait list for this one. I guess it's full but if it goes again, I did put my name on waiting, am paid up member

    March 23, 2015

    • Kaye

      The calendar contest is open to all members who have paid their membership fees for 2015. The meetup site only allows a max of 50 participants for meetup so everyone after 50 is automatically on the waitlist. Please read the contest rules then post your entries. Thanks!

      March 23, 2015

    • Jay T.

      Thanks for the clarification. I wonder why they picked 50 as the magic number. Guess they didn't expect clubs with such successful numbers. Good job organizers.

      March 23, 2015

  • Dee

    Looks like an awesome idea, lots of different types of ideas.

    February 6, 2015

  • Kirk

    This was very educational. Thank you to all the organizers!!

    January 18, 2015

  • Gina B.

    Steven, my train of thought was the same. Not so much as procrastinating, but I feel it's way less of a hassle to wait until close to the deadline to gather my pics together rather than submitting photos right away and going back to retract any later if I take something better. As a head's up, Kaye, I plan to wait until August 30, 2015 to submit photos for the calendar. :)

    I was procrastinating and was going to wait til closer to the deadline to post my pictures. oops.

    How much does it cost to join the club?

    July 21, 2014

    • Kaye

      it's $10 per calendar year. So if you pay now, you are good to Dec 31/14

    How can I pay membership dues?

    July 16, 2014

    • Kaye

      You can pay with Pay Pal. If you look on the left hand side of the home page, there is a link.

      July 16, 2014

  • Sandi

    It says that it is for paid members only. As I am new I have not been to any events yet and wonder how I pay

      Would love to learn, [masked]

  • Emilia

    what are the specs the photos should be in?
    ... and what resolution?

    September 20, 2013

    • Bev H.

      Perhaps we can just submit lower res photos with the proviso that we have the higher res ones if chosen? I'm on sketchy internet so I'm always preferring to submit smaller file size first.

      October 2, 2013

    • Laurice B.

      Yes

      May 1, 2014

  • Loretta

    I only see the one album " seasons": do we submit any category to this album??

    February 28, 2014

    • Laurice B.

      There is an album for each of the listed categories. They may be buried within the photo tab, you will have to look.

      February 28, 2014

    • Loretta

      Thanks.

      March 1, 2014

  • Laurice B.

    Please ensure that you photo is entered into the correct album as I will not be moving them for you.

    February 28, 2014

  • Rick W.

    Cool - can the photos be taken at any time? I have a few older ones I'd like to submit but it would make more sense if there was some restriction.

    November 15, 2013

    • Laurice B.

      Photos can be submitted into the theme albums at any time and we encourage you to submit early. Deadline for entries is Sept. 15, 2014 .

  • Kaye

    Laurice, I just took a look at all the ablums for this contest, and now I understand what you meant by "it was a lot of work!". Thank you SO MUCH for all that extra effort, and I love all the photos you chose for the individual album covers. Really beautiful and inspiring work! I am hoping our members will try to push themselves a little forward in their skills and show off their talents.

    Looking forward to seeing all your entries!
