It's that time of the year again, and we're going to try to start early this year.

OffroadTB.com will be putting out a 2012 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 and use the [ImgSize=][/ImgSize] tag to reduce it)

Picture guidelines:
-Taken off-road
-Of your vehicle
-In perfect focus
-Good photo composition
-No people in the photo (unless they are inside and obscured from view)
-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 please)
-Pictures do not have to be from 2011

Ideal EXAMPLE from 2011:
Image

We (me/the mod/admin team) will then pick the best photos by weighing the following:
-photo quality (no cell phone pics will even be considered!)
-artistic merit of the photo
-'off roadness' of the setting
-quality/beauty of the background
-vehicle modifications (the more the better) - but don't let that discourage you - we have had stock TBs in the past

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 now! You can always come back and update your submission with two new ones... but please only have two photos posted here at a time.

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. We can be rather picky.

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

Fish... You need to at least borrow one! Have you been in the calendar yet? Where you go and what you do, you should have a calendar pic. Just saying...

we got something like this on the black friday sale for $59 but without the kit, just he camera.
It takes great pics and decent short videos to not have much zoom.

Not a bad deal, and I live a few blocks from Wally World too. My wife refuses to do business with them though. I'll check out online. Got a run coming up on the 29th. Gonna try my first double black trail.
