Dear Photographer,                                                                                     3 February 2019 

Calling for photos for Friends’ 2020 Calendar of Richmond Park

We are delighted to say that the 2019 calendar was a sell-out and raised a record amount for projects in the Park. We are very grateful to all who donated their photos and invite photos for the 2020 Calendar from 1 March. The calendar will show the amazing diversity of fauna and flora and views in the Park across the seasons. Our deadline is Thursday 18 April 2019.

Each photographer is invited to send in a maximum of 8 photos, but not more than 4 from any one season – winter, spring, summer, autumn. I love opening the photo files and being amazed by the images, so very much looking forward to receiving your emails.

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  If you have difficulty in renaming files, then please just list the existing file name or number in the body of the email along with the new name as above.

  • Please send your photos as low or full resolution JPEGs (as they came off the camera)
  • You can send me your photos is two ways, both to calendar.frp@gmail.com
    • as attachments to emails. Please do not send photos in the body of an email
    • or by We Transfer, Dropbox or similar
  • In either case, please also email me a list of the photos with their new names 

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 that your photos of deer are taken from a distance of least 50 yards. 

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

With best wishes

Friends’ Calendar producer
