Maybe we weren’t clear when we started talking about the Chamber Day book. We need photos both above AND below the water, since the event happens in both places. And we need photos from both Chamber Day AND Chamber Eve. We need LOTS of photos. The book’s going to be close to 100 pages.

The deadline for submissions is tomorrow (Tuesday, May 8) at the end of the day. If you can’t get it done by then, let us know ASAP either by calling us at 310/652-4990 or e-mailing us at chamberday@aol.com. If you’d like to arrange to drop them off to us directly in Westwood, that can also be arranged by contacting us directly.

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. But don’t feel like you should just send us two or three. The more the merrier.

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’s a recap of the guidelines for submitting:

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 (please, no MIME files)
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 a variety of reasons
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 $75. 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.

Chairman, Chamber Day/Eve 2007
