1. Non-Member photo submission rules: The following rules will be published on the member submission form:
a. Hard copy photos (photo lab, not computer printout) must be sent to: 24300 Chenal Pkwy. #1, Little Rock, AR 72223. All hard copy photos must be a minimum of 4”x5”, and 300 dpi (if from digital originals). If you want your photos returned, they must be sent with a stamped self-addressed envelope.
b. A signed photo release form is required under these conditions:
- Hard copy photos and photos sent via email must have signed permission from the submitter.
- Photos taken by a photographer who is not the submitter must have signed permission from the photographer.
- Photos containing an identifiable person require that person’s (or their parent’s/guardian’s) signature.
c. To be considered for a calendar page, all photos must be landscape orientation and a minimum of 3,000 pixels in the horizontal direction.
d. Prominence: The dog must be visible in the photo and prominent in it, not merely in outline. Preferably the whole face should be visible. Photos may be usable after cropping if the resolution is high enough.
e. View at a distance: Photos must look good at a distance as well as close up.
f. Prior use: No dog used in the current year’s calendar as a page photograph is eligible for a calendar page in the next year’s. (They are eligible for a small photo.) Thus a dog is eligible to submit for page photographs every other year. Only one dog per owner may be featured as a page photo in the calendar. No photo used as a cover for the Shepherd’s Call will be eligible for a calendar page.
g. Submissions must be received by June 30th.
h. You should receive an auto reply if your submission is successful. If you do not receive an auto reply, please submit your photos again.
By uploading a photo here you are giving English Shepherd Club permission to use the photo(s) for any publication or ESC website.
