Announcing the Capture Kern County 2013 Calendar
A New Capture Kern County Publication
Get your cameras ready and your voting fingers warmed up -- it's time for the next Capture Kern County publication! The Bakersfield Californian is thrilled to announce the Capture Kern County 2013 Calendar. Building on the success of the Capture Kern County book, we are excited to open submissions and voting for a new way to showcase Kern County photography: a beautiful wall calendar.
What is it?
The best of Kern County, as decided by local photographers and local voters, wrapped in a 15-month fine-art calendar for your wall. Top-scoring photos and editors picks will be featured in the calendar, which will span the 2013 year (plus a few bonus months in 2014). You can pre-order copies now if you'd like!
How many photos will be featured?
It's hard to say for sure, but we plan to feature one photo for each month in the calendar, plus a handful of smaller photos in each month.
Which photos are eligible?
If you'd like your photos to be eligible for publication in the Capture Kern County 2013 Calendar, visit the Capture Kern County 2013 Calendar info page, then click "opt in." Once you've opted in, all of your photos (whether uploaded in the past or in the future) will be eligible for the calendar.
Yes! Photos uploaded to date and all the votes you've cast still count, but we'll be sure to look at new photos too! The best way to do this is to look at how photos do on a per-day basis. In other words, we will be looking for both high-scoring photos and photos that have a high daily score in a short amount of time. This way it's fair for both photos that have been collecting votes for a year and photos that are uploaded today going forward.
What's the timeline?
There are three two key dates: August 24, 2012 is the last day for new photo submissions and voting to be considered for Capture Kern County 2013 Calendar. November 2, 2012 is when we expect the Capture Kern County 2013 Calendar to be released.
Now, get out there and capture our beautiful area in photography that spans all seasons, then opt-in, upload your photos and vote to shape the Capture Kern County 2013 Calendar!
