Last year we tried to make a yearly artistic calendar but we got started a bit late. This time we’re going to start early, so we can get done before the holidays!
The 2017 BVAA Calendar Project will end up showcasing 13 images. There will be the cover image and then the 12 one-per-month inside images.
All BVAA members are welcome to participate!
Begin by emailing up to five images to the main info AT BVAA.org email address. The images should all be LANDSCAPE (wide) because that’s how the calendar is laid out. The physical size of each image is 8.5″ x 11″. So aim for an image of that dimension and the maximum pixel count possible. Don’t artificially make your image larger – that tends to pixellate the image and make it worse. Just have it be as large as it can be naturally, without inflation. If you have any challenges taking photos of your oil paintings, acrylic paintings, etc. just let us know and we’ll try to lend a hand. If you’re a photographer and are having trouble cropping your image to the right dimensions we can help with that, too.
All images must be mailed in by Friday, September 30th, 2016.
We will then load all of the images up onto this website. Last year we used Facebook and it turns out many of our members don’t have Facebook accounts. So by putting them on this website everyone can participate. Each member should send us an email for their choice of their twelve favorite images. The votes should all be in by Saturday, October 15th.
We’ll tally the results and create the calendar!
Let us know if you have any questions.
