Calling  for  photos  for  the  Friends’  2022  Calendar  of  Richmond  Park

Guidance, Terms and Conditions

 

We are delighted to say that the 2021 calendar sold out and raised a record amount for projects in the Park. Our new online shop, offering postal delivery and click-and-collect, was a great success.  We are very grateful to all who donated their photos.

We  now  invite  photos  for  the  2022  Calendar,  which  will  show  the  amazing  diversity  of  fauna  and  flora  and  views  in  the  Park  across  the  seasons.

Closing date for receipt of photos is Sunday 25 April 2021.

 

Each photographer is invited to send in a maximum of eight photos, but not more than four from any one season – winter, spring, summer, autumn.

The address for your photos and all correspondence is calendar.frp@gmail.com

It’s only me and my computer at this end receiving and sorting your photos, so, I really need you to help me by sending your photos in the following way (and many thanks as nearly all submissions were sent in this way last year).

  • Please rename each photo or photo file in the following manner:

Month taken in number, surname of photographer, name of subject.

e.g. a photo of a little egret taken in July by me would be: 7.Press.littleegret. If you have more than one of the same subject in the same month, then just add a number at the end e.g. 7.Press.littleegret.2

  • Please also email me a list of the photos, named as above

If you have difficulty in renaming photo files, worry not, but please email me a list of the existing file names or numbers along with the new names as above.

  • Please send your photos as low or high resolution JPEGs (as they came off the camera). 
  • You can send me your photos is two ways:
    • As an email attachment to calendar.frp@gmail.com Please do not send photos in the body of an email,
    • I recommend sending by We Transfer: wetransfer.com/  (This is easy to use and free up to 2GB!)
    • Please do not zip your files.

Your photograph may be printed in a large or a small size, depending on how the design works out and there is no fee, but we will credit each photo.

Please ensure and confirm that your photos were taken in Richmond Park and that photos of deer were taken from a distance of least 50 yards.

All photographs submitted must be the photographer’s own work, and to which they own the copyright. Copyright for all submitted images remains with the photographer who sent them in.

In submitting photos for the calendar, each photographer gives their permission to the Friends of Richmond Park to feature any of the photos, with accreditation, in any of their publications and communications.

Once again, I look forward to receiving your photos

With best wishes

Vivienne Press, Friends’ Calendar producer
