For the past 4 years Nancy has done a wonderful job designing our annual HWF Calendar. Nancy only reluctantly did the 4th year but this season we need to find another designer. So first thanks again, Nancy, for the incredible job of telling the world "daily" about our eagles.
Now we need a new designer. Nancy will give the Quark Express files to the new designer but the new designer does not have to use QE. They could choose a design program of their choice as the final print-ready version needs to be a high res PDF.
Each year we have more images and this year is no exception. We have many very skilled photographers in the area that will donate images to us. The process is: I will give the basic table of contents -- the 12 months of desired image subjects and then we will solicit the image donations. The biggest & best high res images become the full page monthly feature while other related images become the smaller "day fillers".
The designer largely gets to decide the images subject to review by me.
Timing: We want this done as-soon-as-possible to get calendar orders while our viewers and members are still watching the cams, before the eagles leave on their summer migrations. The calendar must be ready for the printer by September. While we like to have as many photographers represented as possible getting the necessary high res images for the monthly feature does mean fewer entries qualify.
If you would like to consider tackling this essential HWF project please call me asap: 604-538-1114 or toll free long distance 1-800-938-1114. It does not matter where you live. Nancy lives in New England and we're on the west coast. The email distribution of the images etc. happens! Of course HWF pays for the printing of the calendars but we need a volunteer to assemble the calendar design printer-ready as a high res pdf.
