Dave (and others),
What have you in your head about format, how to use the images, and so on? Would the winning images from the astrophotography competition for the 12 months up until the calendar is ready be good enough to use, or are you thinking of a general submission of entries with a vote for the highest 12 most-voted entries on a poll?

Hi Senie,

im thinking something like what you produce for MAC, size and quality.

We could use the images from the competition and some others if needs be.

Some may not suit, some might not print great, we could get a basket of images and pick the best 12 plus one for the cover.

Yea, this is a good idea, I remember the one years ago. I wouldn't limit it to the monthly competition but would limit it to ifas club members who can then submit an image for voting and the 12 highest votes get in

OK, sounds like a plan forming.

Seanie can you get a post up asking for submissions, and put an end date of 2 weeks say, that gives us another week to vote and get the Calendar out in Early December.

Okay, ye can put me down for 1.
Just a couple of questions, will ye be
setting up a PayPal payment option also ye're gonna have to include a P&P option.. Also I think the pictures that are used should display the name of the person that captured the image..

Cheers Roy
