Capture My Arizona 2013 Calendar Contest
A Capture My Arizona Publication
Get your cameras ready and your voting fingers warmed up -- it's time to get started on a Capture My Arizona publication! We are thrilled to announce the Capture My Arizona 2013 Wall Calendar. Building on the outstanding photography uploaded so far by Capture My Arizona photographers, we are excited to open submissions and voting for a real-life publication featuring the best of the best in Arizona photography in a fine-art wall calendar.
What is it?
The best of Arizona, as decided by local photographers and local voters, wrapped in a 15-month fine-art calendar for your wall. Top-scoring photos and editors picks will be featured in the calendar, which will span the 2013 year (plus a few bonus months in 2014). Your photos, your votes; it's the best of Arizona as decided by you! Pre-order copies now if you'd like!
How many photos will be featured?
It's hard to say for sure, but we plan to feature one photo for each month in the calendar, plus a handful of smaller photos in each month. It's likely more than 50 stunning photos will be featured!
Which photos are eligible?
If you'd like your photos to be eligible for publication in the Capture My Arizona 2013 Wall Calendar, visit the Capture My Arizona 2013 Calendar info page, then click "opt in." Once you've opted in, all of your photos (whether uploaded in the past or in the future) will be eligible for the calendar. You must opt-in here for your photos to be eligible!
Yes! Photos uploaded to date and all the votes you've cast still count, but we'll be sure to look at new photos too! The best way to do this is to look at how photos score on a per-day basis. In other words, we will be looking for both high-scoring photos and photos that have a high daily score in a short amount of time. This way it's fair for both photos that have been collecting votes since we launched Capture My Arizona and photos that are uploaded today going forward.
What's the timeline?
There are two key dates: September 30, 2012 is the last day for new photo submissions and voting to be considered for Capture My Arizona 2013 Wall Calendar. December 7, 2012 is when we expect the Capture My Arizona 2013 Wall Calendar to be shipped. Of course the Capture My Arizona site will continue to run well beyond then, but from now until September 30, 2012 defines the "calendar phase," or the dates in which photos will be considered for publication in the calendar.
Now, get out there and capture our beautiful state in photography that spans all seasons, then opt-in, upload your photos and vote to shape the Capture My Arizona 2013 Wall Calendar!
