It’s time to submit your images for our Chamber Day 2007 book, Through the Lens: A Chronicle of Chamber Day 2007. In short, we intend for this book to be a complete sunrise-to-midnight record of Chamber Day and Chamber Eve. But we can’t do it without your help. And what we need from you are digital photos - and lots of them - from both above and below the water.

It doesn’t matter if you consider yourself a good photographer or not. We’re betting that if you shoot enough (and remember, we need topside images - day and evening - as well as underwater stuff), you’ll get a couple of great ones. Photos can be serious, humorous, documentary-style, obvious setups, or whatever strikes your visual fancy. Our only “rule” is that the shot MUST be taken on May 2

You’ve got until May 8 to get your images to us. You’re welcome (and encouraged, actually) to crop, adjustment exposure, and clean up the shots in whatever way you like. So give us your “best version” for each image you submit. There’s no limit on the number of shots you can submit but please don‘t just send us everything you shot. Pare them down.

Everyone submitting at least one image will be entered in a special raffle. We’ll draw three names and each winner will receive a $100 gift certificate courtesy of Samy’s Camera and you can use that to add to or improve your photography through Samy’s whatever way you desire.

Here are all the guidelines for Submitting Pictures:

Submitted images must have been taken on May 2, 2007
Images must be submitted in JPG format
Images should be no more than 1000 pixels tall
Individual image file sizes should be no larger than 1MB
(If any of your images are chosen for the book, we may need the full-sized original picture file)
Scanned images from slides or prints are fine, but we cannot do the scanning for you
All images must be submitted no later than 6PM on Tuesday, May 8th
Images can be submitted via e-mail (as an attachment) or by mail (burned to a CD)
E-mail submissions should be sent to chamberday@aol.com
If you can, put your e-mailed images into a ZIP file (limit ZIP files to 10MB each)
You may send more than one ZIP file
Mailed CDs should be sent to: Ken Kurtis, P.O. Box 11634, Beverly Hills, CA 90213
If you mail a CD, send us an e-mail as well so we’ll know to look for the CD in our PO box
Photographer grants the Chamber permission to use the image in our book
Photographer retains all other rights to the image
Images will be chosen for the book based on quality, subject matter, & uniqueness
All decisions of the image selection committee are final
Images not chosen will be deleted from our files
All images used in the book will include a printed photo credit to the photographer
All photographers submitting at least one image will be entered in a special raffle
Three winners will be drawn, and each will receive a $100 gift certificate from Samy’s Camera

And don’t forget to reserve your very own copy of our book (really YOUR book). You can do this through our website at www.chamberday.org or by calling 310/652-4990. Cost is $65 through Sunday night (May 6) and $75 after that. We anticipate being able to put the book in your hands at the Scuba Show June 2 &3.

Thanks for being part of Chamber Day and our book project. We literally can’t do it without you.
