For the first time, a concerted effort will begin to produce an IFAS Calendar (for 2015), and it needs your images to help! Profits from the sale of the Calendar will go to the Irish Federation of Astronomical Societies to help further promote astronomy and allied subjects through the efforts of its member clubs and societies.

What you need to do
Submit your favourite astrophoto on anything you want. Please DO NOT RESIZE IT to a smaller resolution or dimension. Send your image attached via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


Requirements
Your image should be:
1. Larger than or equal to 3626pixels wide X 2598pixels high (or 307mm wide X 220mm wide). This is A4 Landscape (with a bleed area).
2. 300dpi, CMYK and in .jpg format.
3. Images not in 300dpi resolution can be optimised, but their overall quality would still be upscaled to accommodate 300dpi print and quality will be affected.
3. Images not submitted in CMYK colour format can be changed to this (from the typical RGB colour scheme used digitally onscreen), however please be aware that some colour alteration will occur during the converting process.
4. Include your IFAS username (REQUIRED), and details if you are a member of an astronomy club or society.
5. This is NOT exclusive to registered users in Ireland/Irish registrants of the IFAS website.


What will happen next?
All images submitted will be added into a poll, and the 12 highest voted images will be the winners for inclusion in the calendar.


Terms and Conditions
1. All images submitted will be the property of the Irish Federation of Astronomical Societies for the sole purpose of the production of a 2015 Calendar and/or promotion within the IFAS universe.
2. Images reproduced will be done so with full credit to the astrophotographer(s) involved.
3. No monetary alternative will be accepted for an image to be included.
4. No money will be paid for an image to be included.
5. In the event of any tie breaker situation, the decision will be made by the IFAS Committee.
6. This is open to


Please Note
Conditions of this request MAY change as feedback is received. Please check back and take a note of any updates to this thread. There is a tight deadline in order to get it produced and printed, so please bear with us!

Closing Date: Saturday October 18th 2014.


Good Luck!

PLEASE NOTE: It is ONE image per person allowed, so choose your best shot AND you must include your IFAS username (they're in the rules).

Some have submitted 2 and 3 images so far - you better choose which one you want to be voted upon!

That would be affirmative. So far, all images for voting are being done so by secret ballot like the astrophotography competition.
