2017 Calendar - Urgent call to upload!!!

snowHeads 2017 Calendar
Closing date for submission of images and voting is Wednesday 16st November


Yes, it's that time again, to share your best mountain snaps with the world! Because it is later than usual this year we won't be holding a separate voting period after the closing date, and it is essential you all get in your photos as fast as possible. As usual final choice will still come down to us but we will consider any votes cast as a guide.

The rules are simple: you can submit up to 3 pics
Any more and all will be disqualified
, taken in the past 12 months which will be judged by your fellow snow lovers. A selection of the top rated photos will be printed in the 2017 snowHeads calendar, with one on the cover.

Upload here: http://snowmediazone.com/the_zone/g1254-2016-vintage.html

Calendar design dictates 12 of the photos should be landscape, not portrait. (That's a sideways, as opposed to upright, orientation.) There's a possibility a portrait pic will be used for the cover. Mathematicians amongst you will deduce therefore that the odds of having your pic selected are better if you submit a landscape shot.

To ensure good print quality we'll need a hi-resolution version of your image. Some phone images taken low-res really won't cut it, so please check you've got decent versions of the photos you choose to submit. ("DPI is completely irrelevant. It's pixels that count. As a minimum you probably want something like 1400x1050, or better." - allanm, 13/10/14)

If you're new to this, the place to upload your entries is here: snowMedia zone (under the tab 'snowBase'), then in 'Champagne Powder' you'll find the 'Vintage 2016 - pics for the 2017 calendar' folder.

Remember to add a brief description: what it's of, and when and where it was taken.

To enter a photo already uploaded to the snowMedia zone, use the ‘edit’ function to copy it across to the 'vintage 2017' collection. You must only submit pictures to which you own copyright, or have written permission from the copyright owner for publication. If your username on snowMediaZone isn't exactly the same as your snowHeads one - let us know who you are!

Closing date for submission of images is Wednesday 16st November. Entries have already been submitted so get uploading now! final selection will be made on Thursday 17th November to ensure calendars are made and delivered in good time for Christmas. As usual, winning photographers will be sent a calendar for the cost of postage.

Best of luck!

Note: As in previous years, the final choice will be guided by the ratings rather than defined by them, to ensure balance and variation throughout the set.

Remember: to vote for your favourites, you need to be logged into the snowMedia Zone!

What times? Will it be midnight for both, ie there are 24 hours to vote, or what? It's a bit tight. Not everyone is on here 24/7 Laughing .

Well, I am, and I can't see anything about voting, or even something like "Voting link will be up 16th, don't forget to vote!"

Or are we all going to get an email reminder?

@CaravanSkier, I've managed to move 2 photos that were in the "Champagne Powder" overall category into "2016 Vintage", which I where I assume you wanted them? Unfortunately the third one slipped into a black hole, would you mind uploading that one again please? Thanks, Y

@CaravanSkier, no worries snowHead I haven't got much of a clue either! I think that when you upload, the default setting is to allow rating by others, but perhaps that got lost when your pics were being moved around. Pity, I rather like the glass of wine!

I've uploaded two photos three times by mistake (I think I pressed the button too many times), tried deleting one of the copies of one photo, but I seem to have deleted all three. Oh well. I still seem to have three photos out there, although one is repeated - sorry about that.

@maggi, the only alternative with this software would be to set it as a "contest" in which each user could only vote for 1 photo - so simple total of votes at the end. We could stop additional photos being uploaded on a certain date and then enable voting. Do you think that would be preferable? Should we have an advisory referendum? Toofy Grin

How does the rating work? The total in my messages does not match what is shown on the photos? Am I missing something obvious, apologies if I am Puzzled
