2013 NTCA Calendar Photo contest

Post by Hawthorne » Tue May 22, 2012 7:20 pm

UPCOMING CONTEST!

Dear Friends,
For 2013, the NTCA will be creating a calendar of Tamaskan Dogs! We would like to invite you to participate in creating this new publication by submitting photos of your Tamaskan Dog. Photos will be voted on, and whoever gets the most votes will be included in the 2013 calendar.

Entrants may post here or on the NTCA Facebook page. I will provide a link soon.

More details to come.

sleep on a sofa nearby
jump like the sky is the limit
sit by the fire with friends
stay with the ones who love you

We want as many entries as possible--of course we wouldn't make an entire calendar out of Freyja--but yes, everyone is encouraged to enter. Photos must be of Tamaskan Dogs , of course :D

I think that for the calendar that maybe it could have the name of the dog and owner in the bottom corner that way it is easier to tell which dog is which (for those of us who dont know them all by sight) and in case we get some for gifts. i think for one that a tamaskan calendar would make a great gift :D

Absolutely! We could have little doggie bios in the text under the photo. Just wait and see :D I already have a gorgeous layout.

Here are two of Zephyr, I have more of his most recent off leash excursion on and island but those will have to wait.... When is the final submission date,? so I can add another one or two.

Here is a Fall and Winter picture I can send the bigger un copyrighted ones if either of them gets chosen.

Yes, perhapse there could be more than one photo per month. Each month having a theam... Dog's in the forrest, dog's in the snow, Puppy's posing, Dog's working, dog's with other animals etc ???? :? It would show all the different character's of the Tamaskan.

We could probably do a 13 or 14 month year...start with December 2012 and run through January 2014. We'll see what the printer has for arrangements. But yes, we can include small photos on the bottom section where the extra squares will be for the days of the week. I have lots to start with as far as template ideas, but I have one template that is absolutely fantastic. Plus I'll get to show off my InDesign skills :)

Thank you, Ciaobella. I have a Canon Rebel Xti. Loki loves it down at the beach and we tried having him off leash for the first time today and he did pretty well.

Just a couple of questions about voting for our favourites...Should we wait until the deadline and then vote? Are we allowed to vote for more than one photo? I already have several I REALLY like.

Haha yes I know Gabriele. I'm hoping to take her to the beach sometime this week, it'll be her first visit. Hopefully we'll be able to meet up some day. There's going to be so many great photos in this calendar.
