I decided to start another thread on this subject because the other one sort of got hijacked by Jason Alexander. I'm really serious about doing a bottle calendar for 2012 with photos from all of you. So much so, that I'm willing to front the money. It looks as though they can be made for $7.99 each. I was thinking, if we charge $9.99 each, plus the shipping, we could donate $2.00 per calendar sold, to the site. On a run of 25, that would be $50.00. I know that some of you aren't able to afford the $9.99, but that's where Secret Santa will come in handy this year. What I'm thinking is, let's run another contest, for lack of a better word, and submit photos for consideration. At the end of whatever deadline we decide, we'll then vote for our favorite 12. Here's a couple of rules that I would suggest, and might even demand seeings how I'm the money man. [:)]

2 photos max per member. No one has the time to view your whole photo album, so make it your 2 best.

No face shots or animals in the pics. And that means no dead squirrels either. [8|] This is a bottle calendar.

Another suggestion is to have a theme for certain months. December/Christmas. January/Happy New Year, and July/Independence Day, to name a few. You get the idea. RoadDog, I believe it was, had the perfect one for July in Charlie's contest last month. Another thing. I'm not a lawyer, or even play one on TV, but does anyone know if we need to have a signed document of some sort from the photographer/member to print their pics in a calendar?

Anyway, give me some feedback. We don't have a lot of time if we want them ready for 01/01/12. ~Mike

Here's a pic I thought would be a good one for the month of July. And it was from AntiqueMeds, not RoadDog like I thought. ~Mike

One suggestion about the photos submitted: they should be shaped properly to fit on the calendar page, not cropped to a disproportionate ratio, and not oriented vertically. I imagine it will be an 8 1/2 x 11 page..

I don't think there should be any limit on the amount of bottles in your pic, Branden. But just keep in mind that depending on their arrangement, too many might make it seem cluttered. ~Mike

Just a reminder, photo printing starts at 300 dpi. Unless the pages are going to be a collage of different images, the 1 image better be a big one. [&:] The standard web image is 72 dpi, which will reproduce very small.
