We’re so excited about a new project we’re developing for the kitties of the CB. We’re ready to design a CB Calendar for 2014. This year, we’re going to try something a little different. We’re going to design a “page-a-day” desk calendar that allows one picture per weekday. There is only one publisher that we can find that will do this for us, so the process will be slow and detailed, but we’re excited about the project. We've set up this blog page describing the process and to keep you up-to-date on the progress.
Each blog can submit up to five photos, one each of each of your cats (or group pictures) numbered in order of your favorite photos. We will use everyone's first choice first in the order they are received and then go on down the line. If we still need more images, we will send out another notice. This is our first year, so we hope that if we repeat this process next year, we have an idea of the level of interest and participation for the calendar and can make it a onetime request!" Important Update: Pictures in "landscape" mode do better on the calendar than those in "portrait" mode. The pictures are much smaller in portrait mode and may need to be cropped in order to fit.
All photos should be “natural” photos of your kitties and not “photo shopped”. We want this calendar to show the beauty of the CB cats in their natural environment. The photos should be clear and focused. If there is a specific day you’d like your photo to be assigned to, please indicate it beside the photo number. We will make every effort to put your picture on the requested day, but that may not be possible if there are multiple requests for the same day.
Please send your photos to us by midnight, August 2. We’d like to have the calendar completed by mid August, so we can get the first order to the publisher. Please send pictures of your cats to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you include the phrase “CB Calendar” in the subject line
Important Information about of what to include in the email:1. Five photos numbered in priority order with the name of the kitty in the photo
2. Name of blog
3. Blog address
4. Include any requested dates for each photo
Here's a sample of what a page in the calendar may look like -
