The ADKHP calendar will be back in 2013!

It's time to get the 5th consecutive ADKHighpeaks calendar rolling. We're planning on this 5th anniversay edition being the biggest and best ever. Bigest in terms of numbers sold and best in terms of the quality of pictures.

The basic details:
  • All forum members are invited to submit up to 4 of their best pictures, one per season.
  • The submissions will be posted and put to popular vote.
  • The most popular pictures will be used to create an Adirondack/Catskills 2013 Calendar.
  • Members will order more of these fine calendars than ever before. (think home, office, Christmas gifts etc.)

The pesky but important details:
  • Email 4 of your best pictures one per season to Neilluck@videotron.ca (make sure you put ADK Calendar in the subject field) and note spaces and upper case letters.
  • Indicate your name in the email body text.
  • Indicate the season during which each picture was taken. by renaming your picture as Winter.jpg, Spring.jpg etc. (I'm going to rename them as I receive them anyway from W001.jpg up to W999.jpg)
  • You may email me a lower resolution picture but your-out-of-the-camera original must be close to 3000 by 2000 pixels in order to blow up to 8x10 size at 300 dots per inch resolution or we will not be able to use it.
  • Also, your picture must be in "landscape" ie. horizontal orientation, not portrait.
  • After the September 15 deadline I'll post the submissions.
  • The submissions will only be identified by a number.
  • Forum members will vote for their favorite pictures by PM.
  • The 13 most popular entries will be used to create the calendar.
  • Entries must be restricted to The Adirondacks and the Catskills.
  • The profits generated will be used by the ADKHighpeaks Foundation to finance projects within the Forest Preserve.



Each year, this project is a lot of fun and a big success because of forum member involvement.


The deadline for submissions is September 15
Voting will commence on September 16 and will close on September 30.

Hi, it's me again.

So far 17 people have submitted pictures.

Last year we had submissions from exactly 46 people.

Come on folks. Time to get to work. We should be able to get at least 50 people to send in pictures.
