Well, I'm a bit later this year than normal, but nonetheless, it's that time again!

OffroadTB.com will be putting out a 2015 calendar, and we need your pictures to fill it.

Each person that wishes to enter can submit up to 2 photos of your vehicle and post them in this thread. If you post a re-sized photo here, please ensure that you have a high resolution copy available if we request it. (or you can just post up a high res version now - this is preferred so I don't have to email you later for the full size version!)

Picture guidelines:
-Taken off-road (your truck on pavement will immediately be rejected)
-Of your vehicle (if someone else has an image of your truck, contact them and get the full resolution version)
-In perfect focus (no blurry shots!)
-Good photo composition (pretty backgrounds are desirable)
-No people in the photo (unless they are inside and obscured from view, or otherwise contribute to the aesthetics of the shot)
-No DATE or TIME Stamps
-Please try not to cut off any part of your vehicle, unless it has some sort of artistic merit.
-High resolution MUST BE available (2000px or more wide)
-Pictures do not have to be from 2014, but do not submit a shot that has been included in a prior calendar

Ideal EXAMPLE from 2012:


We will then pick the best photos by weighing the following:
-photo quality (if it's a cell-phone shot, it needs to be clear)
-artistic merit of the photo
-'off roadiness' of the setting
-quality/beauty of the background
-vehicle modifications (the more the better) - but don't let that discourage you from submitting - we have had stock TBs many times in the past calendars

This is a first-come first-serve sorta thing, so once we have 12 pictures that we like, we will begin the calendar creation. So don't wait to submit pictures; submit them immediately!! You can always come back and update your submission with two new ones... but please only have two photos posted here at a time to be fair to others.

Please note that by posting your photo, you are giving us full rights to use your photo in any way we see fit... and please don't hold it against us if we don't choose your photos. I can be rather picky.

I think that about covers it... I'm looking forward to seeing your submissions this year!

Two best shots I have, I need to kick my passengers out more for active shots.

I only have a low rez of the first picture currently, should be able to fetch the original from the owner, if needed.

A few general responses, more than likely I can work with the size you give me, but if it's not at least 2000 px wide, I may not be able to upside it without serious distortion.

Remember, scenery is important too. A vehicle in an ugly setting isn't much to look at.

I may have to add this as a rule, but I really dislike side-of-the-road tire-on-berm posing shots.

And although your daughter is cute, please don't post something that doesn't follow the rules. That would otherwise be great for the random pics thread.

If you see someone else's shot elsewhere on the site that you'd love to see here, please PM them and urge them to post up.

I'm breaking the rules.... kinda. Here are my three best shots, but they only count as one since it the same shot, just different angles. Let me know if it is a real problem.

Phone pictures are fine as long as its high resolution and meets the other requirements.
