Hey there, it's your Official Unofficial CBRR&R Calendar SpokesDog “Piper” here calling all Chesapeakes.
We want YOU, er... Photos of you for our Calendar Contest; it's our biggest fundraiser of the year. So use some of that legendary Chesapeake assertiveness to get your humans to send us your pictures -- you could be famous! Upload them via our calendar contest website. Please be sure to include your name (we mean the dog!). Only two photo submissions per dog. No humans! Just dogs! (Don't you love that part?) No really, no humans! Even in the “reserve a day” photos. Photos with humans will be rejected. No refunds will be given if your photo is rejected and you don’t respond in time to replace it.
Submissions open JULY 1, 2021!
Tips for calendar photographs--this is important!
There are always a portion of entries that have to be rejected for the main images because of small file sizes. We thought we'd share some notes about taking photos and downloading.
For reproduction purposes, submitted photographs need to be 300 dpi and at least 12 inches wide. Horizontal images are preferred, as the calendar has a horizontal format. Vertical images can be sent, but the file sizes need to be even larger to maintain the horizontal requirement. In other words, a vertical photograph would still need to be 12 inches wide, which would make it roughly 18 inches tall.
We check the specs in PhotoShop. If you don't have photo editing software, don't worry about it too much. Most digital cameras, and phones, will produce acceptable files, just so long as the download is made at the largest possible size.
Also, before taking the photographs, if the camera has a setting for file size, make it as large as possible.
If there is a problem with your submission, please be on the look out for an email from a volunteer on our committee. We will reach out to help you either resend us a larger file or find another photo.
We’re looking forward to seeing your dogs for 2022.
