OffroadTB.com will be putting out a 2016 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 email the picture to admin(at)offroadtb.com (or you can just post up a high res version now and let the site resize it for you - this is preferred but not required)

Picture guidelines:
-Taken off-road (your truck on pavement will immediately be rejected)
-A GMT360/370 needs to be in the photo (if someone else has an image of your truck, contact them and get the full resolution version)
-In focus (no blurry shots!)
-Good photo composition (pretty backgrounds are very 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 2015, 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
-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

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'm looking forward to seeing your submissions this year! This is always one of my favorite threads.

Cool picture Kyle, but it's from pavement, which is an automatic disqualification of the pic.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

I think the new calendar format is a bit of a taller aspect ratio, not wide-screen like the current format, so shots that give me some amount of flexibility format-wise (IE, don't fill the frame with the truck) will be helpful.
