How big is it please?
In the post it is A4, unfolds to A3 size
Any chance next year we could have the option of a smaller one; A5 unfolding to A4 size?

Unfortunately not. I am evaluating whether there will be a calendar this year as its a lot of effort and last year we sold so few we struggled to break even.

Too many Silver zeds in it,and 3 pics of the same car probably didn't help,Jim ,lol :rofl:
I know it went on Photo comp entries,but maybe need to mix it up a bit more?
Have photos of as many different zeds as possible,and no more than 1 photo of the same car,or same model and colour?
I know people will then complain about it,but just my opinion,I think a calendar looks better with different things each month?
Good to see a Red,Blue and PY in there to break up all the Silvers and Grey's :rofl:

Hopefully there can be more calendars in future :thumbsup:

I agree with the 'one entry per car' idea...gets a bit boring seeing the same car over and over again. Pretty sure last years had one car in three times! No harm in entering and even winning the comp with the same car, but you just don't get to go in the calendar. The calendar entry would go to the 2nd place and so on until it was a new car which hadn't won yet.

I am guilty of not buying one this year, but if you do print this year, I would definitely buy one,
Perhaps run a thread in October, to see how many would def buy and see if the figures add up?

There would be a hole on my office wall for the first time in 7 years if we didn’t have one, but if the costs can’t be covered I get it :(

We did that last year and the sales fell way short of the promises.

You can put my name down to buy one.

I agree that a car should only make one appearance.

I think the more cars that appear in the calendar the better... and the more owners that will want to buy it!!

To take that thought one step further, why not design the calendar so that the 2nd and 3rd place entries also get a spot. Makes the calendar more interesting and even more owners with an incentive to buy it.

It needn't be all squashed up. Have a whole page to the winner (as it is now) and the other page (currently 100% calendar) could be mostly calendar and two small photos for 2nd and 3rd.

Guys, I don't think there is sufficient interest to make it viable to publish a calendar this year.

I have never used a card Calendar for years but would certainly pay for 12 Forum selected Hi-Res background pictures for my PCs that I would set to change every month. Very little cost to produce. I could do it myself I know, from the submitted entries, but I would still pay as it would be a contribution to the Forum. Perhaps some interesting text could be added to the pictures to make them Forum specific.
