There are some quality pictures there already, that would be lovely by themselves.

For some months, we could have more than one dog, but with a forum with 13k+ members and a couple hundred ACTIVE members, there are going to be dogs that are going to be left out.

What everyone should do is pick their favorite photo of their dog(s) and submit that photo. Don't just pick any photos or a multitude of photos, just pick ONE and submit that one.

You need to pick your photo carefully and be sure that it is available in high resolution.

There can be a fold out, or the cover (?) can be a collage of all photos.

I do like the idea of a fundraiser, however, Jess, I think it was, brought up a good point in that we all live in separate areas.

Do some searching in your local area and see how much it is to print out a calendar, this may be the cheaper option compared to a printing company.

I agree with Saje, quality should be over quantity.

Did I miss something before about making a calendar?

I like choosing the best quality photos, mainly because I am a photographer and intend to make a career out of it. I also think this is the best idea if you were intended to make a fundraiser out of it. It may mean a lot to the members of chaz to have all the dogs on it, but the people buying them from shelters wouldn't know the dogs, so they would want a calendar with good quality pictures.

I also like the idea of including everyone. Only I am afraid with soo many members it is going to be extremely difficult, some people are going to have to be left out unless you want the pictures of the dogs really small.

I like the idea of having good quality pictures on the calendar pages and having a fold out or some kind of collage including everyone else.

I also like having spay/neuter and rescue quotes and stuff on it. Do you also intend to put the name of the dog and photographer who took the picture on the calendar?

One of the local rescue organizations here does a calendar every year. I'll see if I can't find out where they get theirs printed. Also, a good friend of mine puts out a local magazine and she got a great deal on the printing. She's a big fan of rescue (has two herself) and I know she'd let me know.

As for buying from shelters, I have no idea what you're talking about.

I agree with limiting to 1 pic per person, as there is just way too many members for people to be entering loads
