Annual Club Calendar       -- ENTRIES CLOSED --      

Entries are now closed. Judging by the members was held with the results available at the following Thursday meeting.

A total of 26 entries were received and  ranked by Wednesday, 6 October @ 10.00 pm. All members of the club were entitled to vote.

12 marks are given to the image you like the most, 11 to the one you like second best etc until you have chosen 12 images.  We intend to use only one image from each participant, however there are more than 12 people who submitted so, unfortunately, not everyone will have an image chosen.  The results were announced on Thursday evening.

The following people had one of their images selected for the Club Calendar.  A full sized high resolution version of each file is required for printing purposes. Use your normal printing size eg. 12 x 8 inches @ 300 dpi or similar.  The front cover of the calendar will contain a collage of images from various authors.  When I get the Calendar compiled I'll give you more details on price and take orders.
