Photo call for the sexy archivist photo book!!!!
The calendar is still the priority, but since we have had so much interest it would be a shame to not include as many people as possible. So I’m going to have an open photo call.
Strangely, to print a small photo book is a little bit cheaper than a calendar, so the price will reflect that. I’m hoping this will satisfy those that took the survey and said they didn’t want to pay $20 for the calendar. But once again, all proceeds will go to the Spontaneous Scholarship Fund.
Send no more than 2 photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The photos need to be of good quality, the printer requires at least 300 dpi. No phone pictures will be accepted.
Pictures in the archives are a plus, but not required, same thing with “nude” pictures.
Once I have a good amount (tentatively 2 weeks from today), I will close the call and pick the photos that will be in the book. I would also like to post the majority of the ones not chosen for the book on this page. Of course I will ask permission before putting ANYTHING on the internet. No names will be included in the book and on the blog unless you tell me in the email that you want your name with your photo.
I’m also considering a contest for the cover photo/picture (it could be a drawing/painting technically). I don’t think it should be a person, but of course it needs to be related to archives. If you have something you think will be great for the cover, please send it to the same email address.
Once again, the calendar is still very much the priority. Emily is planning a great spread and it will no doubt be amazing in order to meet her standards. The book is the calendar’s slightly off-beat cousin. I just want to make sure everyone can be involved.
So get creative, have fun, and please don’t send me anything that lacks strategically placed Hollinger boxes. I don’t want to think of that if I meet you at SAA.
