    I'm starting to think about getting the 2015 calendar preparation underway, so I can get them on sale earlier this year to save me the last minute postal rush. It's usually not difficult to choose the images from the Picture of the Month competition entries, which is what I did last year.

    I won't be making a final decision on the 13 final images for about 3-4 weeks. This will give you all some extra time for snapping some more potential images to choose from. Or you may have some old images kicking around that might be worthy. Be nice to see some quirky ones being submitted as well.

    The images need to be as big as possible in terms of resolution, but generally don't need to have been taken with a high end camera. In fact the picture of Rosie in this years was taken on my smart phone. The template I used needed the images to be at least 4457px x 2273px - in landscape format.

    Let's see what you have ladies and gentlemen :cool: Just upload them to the media gallery, and I'll keep an eye on what's posted.

    Reminder of this current years calendar :)

    Okey dokey, time to pull my finger out. I'll be making selections for the calendar over the new few days from the media gallery (not necessarily just from the picture competitions). It's your calendar, so join in and help me with the selections :D

    If anyone has any favourites then please post up in this thread as it helps me with the decision! I will also be using the comments, likes and ratings on images in to account as well - so still time for you to add some to help me out.

    I'm hoping to start taking pre-orders towards the end of the month, and delivery will be mid December as per usual.

    Do you mean Mint, don't know of any Matt! A link to the picture might help me out ;)

    I saw this one on his profile.
    Maybe ask him directly, he might have an even better one ;-)

    I'd like to submit my pumpkin picture for October. I had taken others the same day if you'd like to see something else. Same car and pumpkin but different pic. Frankie
