Need Your Help - Pics for Calender wanted
#1
Hey everyone...I have been wanting to create a calender for 2012 and instead of it being of my frogs I thought it would be cool to include pictures of peoples vivarium/ frog pictures for the calendar. In order for this to happen I need to have pictures submitted to me via email rainforestherps.calender@gmail.com by September 16th. If I receive enough photos I might do one for each of the following: Pumilio, Dendrobates, Ranitomeya, and Phyllobates and any other dart frog family group not listed.

If your photo is selected we will send you a free copy of the calendar and a $15 gift certificate to our store that can be used on anything. We will create a voting group of selected forum members to come up with the lucky 12 winners and post who they are in Nov.

If you send us a picture you understand that you are giving us, Rainforest Herps, rights to use your photo in any way/ shape or form. We will not alter your watermark if one is included and give you credit for the photograph. Please make sure that this is YOUR photo and not someone else's photo.

When you submit a photo please make sure it has your watermark somewhere tasteful in the photo please. It can be added on simply through photobucket or many other photo software products. Ive included a few examples below:

Will you be donating the profits from the sale of the calendars to an amphibian conservation group or project?

You didn't mention that in your initial post.
Which established, recognized conservation groups are you considering?

If its for charity you should just ask one of the main sites for the use of their photography, this way its all professional grade photos that would fit the ideals of a calendar and you wouldn't have to claim rights to other people's frog pics.

Either way I would have to claim rights to use the pictures since Im the one making the picture. At least thats what my lawyer says to keep from copy write infringement. I have to have permission to use anyones photos that arent mine

I'm not so sure you have to own the pictures to use them. If you get permission for a charity project use of them whats it matter if you own them ? No one will profit and you could credit those who provided pics.

I'm not owning the photos nor am I taking credit for them Michael. This is why I asked to include their watermark that would not be altered. All I'm asking is to use the photos now and if I chose to use the photos again in a later date I already have there permission, always giving the person credit for their photos though.

I really like the idea of hobbyist submitted photos.

Off topic a bit but on a reef forum that I moderate (term used loosly since I rarely visit any more) we do a monthly photo contest and I always thought it would be neat at the end of the year to make a calender from everyones photos and make them available for pretty much cost.

I think as long as they either water mark their image or credit is given in small pring under the photo all would be golden. Especially if those who's photos are chosen are offered free calenders.

Ok, here are the two choices we will spilt the proceeds between:

Mr. Pezzote
Captive Ex Situ Breeding through Captive Rearing Facilities and Monitoring of Recipient Sites for Five Native Colombian Species of Centrolenidae.

Dr. Coloma
Emergency actions for the conservation of Hyloxalus jacobuspetersi (Amphibia: Dendrobatidae), a species at the verge of extinction

If sells go real well I'll send money to Devin's project in Madagascar as well
