If anyone has any images suitable for this then please forward them as it would be nice to see a WCC member getting their images published in this calendar.
Rail Trails of Australia Calendar 2010.
Following the success of the 2009 calendar, Rail-trails Australia is producing a calendar for 2010 and we are now seeking high quality photographs of rail-trails across Australia.
lndividuals or organisations that send in the images used will receive two complimentary calendals for each image used.
This is a qreat opportunity for committees of management to promote your rail-trail or for a rail-trail enthusiast wanting to show a great image from their time on a rail-trail. We will also consider a photo of potential rail-trail if it is a particularly striking image and the trail has a strong prospect of opening in the near future.
Railtrails Australia will accept photos from both amateur and professional photographers, preferably taken in the last two years. Photographs should be suitable to print to at least A4 size, i.e. at least 4 megapixels of resolution and be landscape orientation.
Railtrail Australia will acknowledge the owner of the image if used in the calendar and retain the right to use all images submitted in future publications and/or on our website unless otherwise agreed with the owner.
For those of us that are not professional keep in mind that rail-trails are as much about people as much as the scenery so typically pictures should have trail users in them, preferably approaching the camera. Pictures have to appeal to a wide audience so a close up of family or friends may not be suitable.
Please send your photo files to the secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org. Attachment size for each email should be limited to 4MB please. Alternatively submit CDs or prints to PO Box 2127 Oak Patk Vic 3046. Minimum information with each photo should be the location and approximate date it was taken. Closing date for submission of photos is Sunday 4th october 2009.
