Subject: Submit images by July 14 for CHNEP 2009 calendarWill you please let Lee County Parks & Rev staff, volunteers and guests know about the CHNEP calendar and encourage them to submit images for the CHNEP 2009 calendar? Thanks. – MaranSubmit your artwork for CHNEP 2009 calendarWe live in a beautiful place and many of you have captured this beauty in your artwork as is evidenced by the 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 calendars produced by Charlotte Harbor National Estuary Program, a partnership program working to protect the natural environment from Venice to Estero Bay to Winter Haven. (PDF files of these calendars are posted on the website at www.CHNEP.org.)SUBMIT IMAGES FOR CALENDAR: You can have your artwork published in the 2009 calendar! CHNEP encourages you to submit up to three images that capture the beauty of the natural environment found within the CHNEP study area. The images could have been captured by the young or old, amateur or professional, today or 50 years ago and in any medium (photography, oil, illustration, etc). The goal is that the 2009 calendar will depict the diversity of the natural environment found within this geographic area, which may include rivers, streams, estuaries, native plants and native wildlife.You may submit up to three (3) digitized entries by 5 p.m. on JULY 14, 2008. There is no entry fee. The only “rules” are:· The images captured must be within the watershed of concern to the CHNEP, which includes all or portions of Charlotte, DeSoto, Hardee, Highlands, Lee, Manatee, Polk and Sarasota counties. Maps of the program watershed are posted on the website at www.CHNEP.org.· Each person may submit no more than three images. Images that conform to a 4 x 3 ratio (12 x 9) are preferred as they conform to the anticipated print size of the calendar.· Images must be received as digital files saved on a compact disk (CD). If you want help in digitizing your image, contact The Set-Up in Cape Coral (239/542-4142 or info@...) or a local commercial printer. Scanning costs are estimated to be $50 an image. Please note that only images with resolutions of 300 dpi or greater for a 12 x 9 inch image can be considered for printing on a 12 x 9 inch feature page. Images with lower resolutions may only be printed smaller and placed within the dates of the calendar.· Each entry must be accompanied by an entry form that serves as a release for CHNEP to use the entries in items such as the 2009 calendar, the newsletter Harbor Happenings and on the program website. If images include people who are recognizable, a signed model release form is required of each person. Images will only be posted for selection if a release form is received. The forms are posted on the website at www.CHNEP.org.· Entries and forms must be received by Maran Hilgendorf, CHNEP, 1926 Victoria Ave, Fort Myers FL 33901-3414 prior to the deadline. If you have any questions, please contact Maran at mhilgendorf@.... Entries that comply with these rules will be posted on the website for selection by the public.SELECT IMAGES TO INCLUDE IN CALENDAR: During the month of August 2008 we’ll ask you to select up to 20 images that you believe best depict the beauty of the estuaries and watersheds in the CHNEP study area.
