    Announcing Doberman-chat’s 2014 calendar contest

    It's time again to begin taking photo submissions now so everyone has plenty of time to get their perfect shots in.
    We are going to have 3 categories/different calendars again, which will consist of the following:

    *Doberman’s in general Anything that’s scenic, playful, working, etc. would make for a nice calendar page.
    Prize for the first place winner will be a custom True Collar!
    Sponsored by True Collars. Thank you Ingrid!

    Here is a sampling of some of the beautiful collars Ingrid has hand crafted in the past.
    (Please note, a few of these are highly customized and not available as a contest prize without an additional fee)

    *All puppies (we have plenty again this year) and even if you have cute photos of your adult when he/she was a pup you are welcome to submit them. Pups must be under the age of 12 months in the photo.
    Prize to the first place winner will be a Hurtta winter coat from Euro Dog Designs. (If you happen to live in a warm climate where you couldn't use a coat you can talk to Katja about an alternate choice.)
    Sponsored by Euro Dog Designs.Thank you Katja!

    *All breeds. All breeds are welcome! We love all breeds, so lets see some of your best shots of any breed you might currently own or have owned in the past!
    Prize for the first place winner will be a $50 certificate from Made by Meadowcat
    Sponsored by Made by Meadowcat. Thank you Nicole!

    *There will only be one winner in each category for this contest although all submissions may be used for future advertising purposes.

    *You may submit up to 2 photos of each dog in each category. Please title your photos so it's easier to post the voting polls when the time comes.

    * All images must be taken by you and not be in any copyright violations.

    *All entries must be submitted by October 15, 2013.

    * A community poll will be created for members to vote for the winning submissions in each category. This poll will start on October 16, 2013 and run through November 1, 2013. The winner will be officially announced November 7, 2013. Only members with 10 posts or more will be able to vote in the polls.

    * In the event of a tie, the first place winner will be determined by the doberman-chat.com staff and officially announced by November 15, 2013.

    * By submitting an entry you grant Doberman-chat permission to use your material as a reference in other areas of the board and on DCF merchandise.

    *We will try to use all entries in one of the calendars, but it is very important that you have a high resolution photo available to use for the calendar when the time comes.
    If you cannot provide a high res photo, your entry can not be used.

    *No elaborate photo editing allowed, aside from cropping, re-sizing or cleaning it up a bit.

    * The Doberman-chat staff reserves the right to resolve disputes and disqualify entries as they see fit.

    * Please no photos with people in them. While they might be great pics, they don't make for good calendar shots. And be aware of your background as well keeping in mind what looks good in any calendar.

    * You must be a registered member with at least 10 posts (no padding) in order to participate in this contest.

    * The Winner must be willing to PM a member of the doberman-chat.com staff their mailing address to receive their prize by mail.

    *DO NOT SUBMIT YOUR ENTRIES HERE – there will be a special thread for each category!!!!*

    *You may however ask questions in this thread rather than in the photo submission threads.

    Here is a step by step tutorial on how to post photos, either from your personal photo host or by uploading them directly on this site (preferred).

    Instructions for uploading photos can be found here.

    Since there is always some confusion on portrait and landscape here are some examples.

    Photos MUST be in landscape format to work for the calendars!

    No, I decided not to bump up the size for the submitted pics this year since it spread too many other huge photos all over the board when the limits were raised so much, and it was impossible to go back and change the non-contest pics in other areas.

    We will however still need the full sized ones (like they come off the camera) to be able to use them on the calendars so everyone needs to be sure they have the full sized version set aside when they enter a photo.

    @JanS Whoops! I got too excited since I had my pic of Greta picked out early this year. Would you move it for me please.

    It might be easier for you to repost it in the contest you want it, then I can remove this one. Love our little Greta girl!

    One thing I keep forgetting to mention is that it would be very helpful if you could title your photos; even if it's just their names so it's easier for me when the time comes to post the voting polls. :)

    Of course you can submit and all of the guidelines are above for where to post your entries and such. There is a limit of 2 photos of the same dog in each category and there are 3 categories - again, see above. :)

    Look forward to seeing your entries!

    Yes, just submit new ones in the same thread as your others and say you'd like to replace them and I'll delete your first ones. :)

    thewalkingdead Cute photos but I'm afraid they don't belong here. This thread is just for questions and such. Please find the individual category threads to enter your photos. :)
