It’s that time of year, once again! Please submit your very best photos of RVs to be considered for inclusion in the 2020 Van’s Aircraft calendar. If you already have great shots to send, cool. If you need to execute some (very safely executed) photo sessions, well then start planning!
We typically look for extra-special photos of flying aircraft. Send us what you think is awesome and all will be reviewed and considered. We get a lot of submissions, and we’re fairly picky about the quality of the photos we choose, no doubt! And don’t send us any “faked” photos, please. Those won’t get used. (And yes, that’s happened before. Seriously.)
And, we can’t publish photos we don’t receive. Believe it or not, in some years we’ve received very few of some models. So send yours in!
Please be sure to tell us where the photo was taken, who took the photo, and a little about the plane(s)/pilot(s) in each photo. If your airplane (the one in the submitted photo) has been in one of our calendars before, please let us know that as well. Also, don’t wait too long! We need to gather photos, design a calendar and get it printed all before the holidays, and that’s a lot to get accomplished!
Submit your high-resolution images to firstname.lastname@example.org We need your submissions as soon as you can, and let’s set a deadline of Sunday, October 5th.
A panel of crack experts with strong opinions will choose which photos get published in the calendar. We also leverage some of the photo submissions on our web site, so there are multiple ways for your photos to contribute to the world of RVs! By submitting your photos, you ensure that you are the photographer and that it’s okay For Van’s Aircraft to use your photo for calendar and online purposes. If you’re not the copyright owner, please tell us who is and ask the owner for their written permission. We can’t publish someone’s photos without permission to do so. The photographer will receive credit when published, of course.
Recommendations for submissions:
- In focus
- Photos of one or more RVs (and not other brands of airplane)
- Depicts safe and legal operation, where applicable
- Exciting, flashy and cool-looking are all great
- Needs to be of a printable resolution – No matter how cool the moment is, if the image quality won’t meet the printing spec, we just can’t use it
- Please attach your photos to the emails, rather than embedding them in the body of the email, if at all possible.
So, get ’em submitted, and let’s make a calendar!
