The Rfalconcam merchandising team is working on calendars for 2012, and we need your help!  We would like followers of Rfalconcam to submit 1 wildlife picture they have photographed.  Yes, this photo needs to be one you have taken yourself. 

Directions on how to submit your photo will follow.  In the meantime, this gives you a chance to go through your own archives and find us a whimsical, cute, spectacular, unique, or even scary view of the wildlife world.

Thanks for your efforts in this endeavor, and please wait for further instructions rather than posting your pictures here.

Probably because there were NO babies this year. It's a great idea though!  clap

Sounds like there will be a peregrine one too...maybe no Rochester babies, but plenty of Rochester peregrines...and there were lots of grand-eyases this year...better start saving my pennies!

But there is more to this group than just our primary focus...excellent idea! clap

I am so glad to see here that there will be a 2012 calendar.  I just walked past my October page tonight, and it's another beautiful snapshot that became part of the Falconcam calendar.  There have been so many wonderful pictures submitted.   MAK...your latest pic of the juvie black crowned heron must be part of it. I do hope that pics of Quest, Kendal and Harlequin are submitted.     So many talented photographers; so few months on which to print the pictures.    How about one for every day of the year?

Ok, here are the criteria for the 2012 Wildlife Calendar submissions.  Remember, we are looking for Non-Peregrine photos.

1. Wildlife image for the calendar needs to be a photo that you have taken of animals (mammals, birds, etc.) that are neither human nor domesticated.  Only ONE submission per person.
2. Image must not contain any 'hand of man'. This means no bird feeders, bird houses, fences, telephone poles, building, etc. The spirit of this is to present the animal in its most natural environment. Note: Images CAN be edited to remove hand of man elements.
3. Image should be sent as one of these file types:  JPEG, PNG, TIFF, or GIF
4. Image size should be 2200 x 1700 pixels (11 x 8.5 ratio).
5. Image should be sent to Lou at this email address:  LTCapuano@gmail.com
6. Provide a title and brief description of the image in the note to Lou.
7. Do NOT post your submission to the board.
8. Last day to submit is October 16th, 2011.

Good question, Patti.  We will need "landscape" (2200 width) orientation.  Thanks!

Gee, I don't know what all this is, I point and shoot. How would I know if it's 2200 width? I tried Paint Shop Pro to do my pixels but not sure if the pic is worthy. Will Lou be the judge if the pic meets the criteria? I'm sure a lot of us here are not pixel privy! Is there a sure way to know before we send if it's eligible?

One way to check pixel size and dpi is to simply go into explorer, find the file in your folder, and right click on the file name. Then, select 'Properties'. When the properties window opens, go to the 'Summary' tab and it should display your pixel width and length and your dpi resolution.

Your picture needs to be 2200 (width) x 1700 (length) pixels and the dpi needs to be at least 200 dpi. (DPI stands for 'dots per inch' and the calendar maker suggests that images be at least that to have a quality print.)

As far as getting the image to the needed specs, there's several ways to do it - it depends on your picture editing software. There are some free software packages out there to help. Here is a link to a site with a free editing tool that I have used:  http://www.irfanview.com/
