The Greyhound Project collects photos for the Celebrating Greyhounds
Calendars all year long.
Prints of any size are acceptable. Please do not to try to
enlarge a smaller print. The original is usually clearer and easier to work
with, and the calendar artist will have greater success at producing an
enlargement than you will.
Please label the back of each photograph you send.
Include your name, address, the names of the dogs, and the name of the
adoption group or other source of the dog. If you got your dogs directly
from the racing owner or trainer, that's great; they are just as eligible
for the calendars as dogs that are placed by an adoption group. The information should be printed on tape or a label before applying it to the back of the photo.
Digital images must have been taken at the highest
resolution that your camera will produce in order to be acceptable for
printing. Please send us a print of the image as well as a copy of the image
on a CD. Be sure to note on the label that the picture is also on CD, and
include the file name.
If you have photos that were taken by someone else, please obtain their
written permission for us to use the photos. If the photo was taken at a
nursing home or therapy program of some sort, please obtain written permission from
The photos for the calendars are selected by a group of greyhound adopters in early April for the following year.
The members of the group change from year to year, depending on who is
around and wants to come play on the weekend that we gather around a big
table and go through the photos. The people looking at the photos generally
won't know the people or the dogs in the pictures. They are looking for the
images that 'speak' to them.
The selections for the wall calendar will be taken from photos submitted in
horizontal, or "landscape" format, and the desk calendar requires vertical,
or "portrait" format photos. Normally, we receive far more photos in
landscape, so we have fewer to choose from in portrait.
We receive hundreds of photos, so please limit submissions to your very best shots.
