Bishop’s Stortford Calendar Competition

We have been contacted by Bishop’s Stortford Tourist Information Centre to help them create a 2013 calendar “Bishop’s Stortford: Sights and Scenes” to promote the town.

The format is a3 folded to a4, with a full bleed picture (printed to the edge of the paper) in the top half, and the calendar in the bottom half, along with picture title & credit, and possibly advertising.  A pinhole will be punched in the top for hanging.  This choice is to simplify postage for those sending the calendar abroad as Christmas etc gifts.

The final picture size is landscape format 3510 x 2480 pixels @ 300 dpi. however much smaller submissions should be e-mailed for selection — 1024 x 724 @ 92 dpi jpg files in sRGB colour space to kim.hollylee at

Closing date for submission is August 31st, and provisional selection will be on the morning of Thursday 6th September.  I will be happy to resize photos for members, as will the other “usual suspects” — please get pictures you want resized to me by the end of Bank Holiday Monday

This is a chance for those members who usually only enter DPI competitions to see their work in print.  12 month pictures will be chosen, and possibly a cover photo as well.  All pictures may be overprinted with text as part of the calendar / title, and should not be visibly watermarked.  By entering you agree to the council using selected photos for the calendar without further compensation.

Limit 5 entries per member
