The Official 2024 Calendar Contest

Post by DesignFlaw06 »

It's that time of the year and I'll once again be running a calendar contest. The window for submitting images is now open! Please read ALL of the rules below before submitting a photo. You can see photos that have already been submitted here: https://www.fjriders.com/calendar-contest/ It sometimes takes me a couple days to get a submitted photo posted so be patient.

This contest benefits the forum a great deal and is our primary fundraiser for the server costs. The calendar is only as good as the participation from our members so please consider submitting an image.

Good luck!



Calendar Contest

CONTEST RULES
1) Submission deadline is November 15th. Voting will begin after that and run to the end of the month

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 that doesn't meet or exceed that resolution 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. The voting window will open November 15th.

Good luck narrowing it down to two out of what you have. ;)

Nothing from me this year, was a poor year for riding for me overall, especially on the FJR.

Please read the rules before submitting photos. So far, none of the submissions have been a high enough resolution and/or missing information.

I was on vacation all of last week and finally got caught up to getting the photos posted.

We still have a long way to go before I have a full calendar.

Normally I'd say HMFIC is pulling his weight around here to get his shots in the calendar, but if that one makes it in, and it should, it does so on its own merits. ;)

I haven't had a picture make the cut in the past 2 or 3 years; so apparently that "hmfic" thing doesn't mean squat...

Would have been a great picture but someone parked a motorcycle in the way. :lol:

I beg you guys to please send me a full resolution photo! I respond to more than half of the emails I get that the photos aren't a high enough resolution.
