The deadline is looming to enter your dogs’ photos for an opportunity to be included in the 2013 Celebrating Greyhounds Calendar, just like one of Rachel Hogue’s did in 2012. There are wall and desk versions of the calendar, created as a way of providing a fund-raising product to adoption groups. Pictures need to be submitted by April 6.
The calendars feature adopted greyhounds from around the world and an abbreviated directory of greyhound adoption groups. Most calendars are sold through adoption groups, and all proceeds from the calendar benefit greyhound adoption groups and greyhound placement.
To submit a photo, please include your name and address, your dog’s name, and your adoption group’s name and location ON EACH PHOTO. The information should be printed on tape or a label before applying it to the back of the photo.
Prints of any size are acceptable. It is generally better not to try to enlarge a smaller print. The original is usually clearer and easier to work with.
Digital photos should be on a CD with individual printouts clearly marked with the photo name/number. Be sure your full name, address, your dog’s name, and your adoption group’s name and location is on EACH printout as well as the CD.
If you have photos that were taken by someone else, please obtain their written permission for us to use the photos. An email from the photographer is acceptable for this purpose. If the photo was taken at a nursing home or therapy program of some sort, please obtain permission from the program.
Photo selection is typically done by a group of volunteers in early April for the following year.
Send your best photos (each labeled) to:
The Greyhound Project, Inc.
Attn: Calendar photos
P.O. Box 5239
Framingham, MA 01701
Photos that are not used in the calendar are passed along to CG Magazine and may appear in a future issue.
