2012 calendar competition. Deadline 7th October 2011

For the third year running the calendar competition is now open for entries – alt proc only. Deadline Friday 7th of October 2011. As well as having the chance to be included in the calendar, there are also prizes for all of the 12 who make it into the 2012 calendar.

When to enter

Start now. Entries will be accepted until the deadline, which is Friday the 7th of October 2011.

What to enter

Eligibility: All photographs entered should use an alternative photographic process, such as albumen, anthotype, argyrotype, carbon, chrysotype, cyanotype, bromoil, gum bichromate, gumoil, infrared, kallitype, vandyke, platinum/palladium, photogravure, polaroid lift, transfer and sx-70, salt print, temperaprint, vandyke, wet plate collodion, ziatype and other alternative photographic processes. It is nice if the work has been completed within the last 2 years, but not a must.

What not to enter

No digital, c-prints, or gelatin silver prints, pinholes, unless of course they are combined with an alternative process, lumen are fine. All subject matters apart from nudes acceptable.

How to enter

It is a worldwide event. Anyone can enter. All submissions must be sent by email. Only ONE image per artist. And, please, make my life easier by DOING ALL OF THIS:

  • An image in digital format, in LANDSCAPE format, not portrait, but square is fine, the original MUST be made with an alternative photographic process. The scan should measure exactly 11.25 (wide) x 8.75 inches (tall) at 300 dpi. The measurement is WITH bleed, the final size will be 11×8.5 inches. If the image is smaller than that, please add white space to fill it out to the right size. Yes, last year we accepted portrait format, but this year we decided not to. You must send a high resolution scan, or your image will not be entered.
  • The file in jpeg format.
  • The title of the image.
  • Your name (i.e. the artists name), please also name your file with your name, i.e. John-Doe.jpg
