The Official 2022 Calendar Contest

Post by DesignFlaw06 »

I'm collecting photos first. I'll open up voting after The new calendar page will be up soon. The idea is to have more of an even vote count for each photo. I'm looking forward to seeing what the submissions are going to be. Good Luck!

Calendar Contest

CONTEST RULES
1) Submission deadline is November 14th. Assuming I have my act together, I hope to open up the voting on a couple days later and let it run until November 30th. The calendar should be ready to order during the first week of December.

2) This is an FJRiders member calendar, not specifically an FJR calendar. You may see pictures of other bikes. Award stars based on what you feel is calendar worthy and what criteria you feel an entry should meet.

3) Submissions are sent to motorcyclecalendar@gmail.com and make sure to send the high resolution picture. Be sure to include your username and info about the pictures. Two submission per member. Pick your best ones!

4) Photos must be you own. No paid photography. You may submit another image if you do not like how your image is performing. All votes for your image are reset.

5) Anyone submitting a photo automatically grants permission for the FJRiders.com staff to use the photo in any FJRiders.com or FJR-related applications.

6) I am not turning the calendar sideways for a month. Photos must be in landscape orientation. They will be resized and cropped to a 2300px x 1800px resolution. Anything less than that will be rejected as a submission.

7) Vote fairly! This contest is meant to be fun and a benefit to our FJR community. Any attempts to sabotage the contest will result in disqualification and/or ban from the contest and forum.

8) Voting is a 5 star system. Click on the highest star you want to award. Rankings are a combination of rating and number of votes.

Based on what I've seen, I suspect there will be a heated competition this year, which will result in a stellar calendar.

True, I pretty much know one of them, it's picking the second one that's going to be tough.

Does rule #4 mean that the maximum submission per contestant is 2 images?

No, rule #3 says max is 2 images. Rule #4 is about swapping images if it isn't going your way. Also that they have to be your images, not the images of a professional photographer.

As Pants is getting closer to retirement, either his vision is starting to go or the shampoo is getting stronger. Maybe both. :D
