    Good news, it's time for the 2008 VFRworld Calendar Contest! Last year's calendar was a HUGE success - almost 100 copies were ordered, and are currently hanging on the cubicle walls of VFRworld members! If you haven't checked out last year's calendar, you can find it here:

    <a href="http://vfrworld.com/index.php?page=cafepress"><u>http://vfrworld.com/index.php?page=cafepress</u></a>

    We need your help! How would you like to see your beautiful motorcycle, in all its shiny glory, representing a month in 2008? Like last year, we are holding a contest to decide which photos make the cut.

    The rules for photo submissions are simple.
    1. It must be VFR-related.
    2. It must be a high resolution (over 2000 pixel width would be ideal, which equates to 11"x9").
    3. All years and models are welcome - in fact, the more variety, the better.
    4. Photos which were selected for last year's calendar are not eligible in 2008. However, if you submitted a photo last year that did not get chosen, you are welcome to submit it again this year.
    5. You are welcome to submit as many photos as you wish, but only one photo per user can be selected for the final calendar.
    6. Classy, artsy, colorful photos are highly encouraged!
    You can submit your photos at the following link. Just click on Add a Photo on the left.

    <a href="http://vfrworld.com/forums/vbphotovote.php?do=listingresults&my_query=%20ORDER%20BY%20rating%20%20DESC,%20votes%20%20DESC"><u>http://vfrworld.com/forums/vbphotovote.php</u></a>

    You can also vote for your favorite photos at this link. Photos with the highest ratings will be eligible for inclusion in the 2008 calendar, but final decisions will be made by the moderators of VFRworld. In an effort to create a well-rounded, professional quality calendar, we will choose a variety of photos. For example, we prefer to vary the generations included in the photos, and not to have a calendar of only 6th generation Interceptors.

    If your photo is selected for the calendar, you will be asked to provide some (voluntary) information for the caption. Please ensure that the email address in your profile is up to date. If we can't contact you, your photo will not be included in the calendar.

    We had some AMAZING photos submitted last year, and it was really difficult to narrow it down to 13 (including the cover). VFRworld is now bigger than ever, so this year will be even harder to choose.

    Come and help us create the best VFR-related calendar ever! <a href="http://vfrworld.com/forums/vbphotovote.php"><u>http://vfrworld.com/forums/vbphotovote.php</u></a>

    I've got to find a cool background and get my bike into calender quality shape. I'll try to represent the 500 Interceptor.

    Does it have to be original paint color or is the Mad Max look ok as long as the picture looks good?

    Mello - there are instructions for how to submit a photo in the first message of this thread. In terms of the 25 yr shirts, they are in the store, go to http://vfrworld.com/index.php?page=cafepress. Thanks!

    BTW there has only been one photo submitted so far? I expected a flood! :)

    What's the deadline for submission?

    Probably not going to have any time to get some pictures until later this month, early-Sept...

    Reg and the local crew, I've got access to a 10MP Nikon D80 for some ridiculously nice photos. :)

    Serius problem

    There seems to be some serius problem when downloading pics!
    If you download 2 or more pics to fast only one of the pics is shown so if you download 3 pics, only one of them is shown 3 times! Also sems that if sewerall download pics at same time only one of the pic is shown for all of them. This is wrong!
    Can something be done to this????
    I hope all that has downloaded pics check out their pics, delete the wrong or multiple pics and try to load down the right pic again.

    it's a shame I won't have my vf500 done in time for some good pics. but I did get my 1000 and Rowe's 750 together for some shots, kinda wish I could put all three together in one pic. It would be kinda cool.
