Thanks Matt, very cool idea and a GREAT prize. Guess I need to invest in a camera. Looking forward to seeing some great shots.

Hey @SixZeroFour - the camera from a modern iphone or android phone would be potentially good enough for print, assuming they send you the full resolution

right?

@Troy I've run into issues in the past with camera phones having a large filesizes, but the lens itself just isn't up to par and provides a slightly grainy image. If you have an iPhone 6 PLUS or newer you might be able to get away with a camera phone but a proper camera is the way to go if at all possible.

If you don't have a suitable camera you are welcome to submit camera phone images but there is a 50/50 chance it may not be usable in the calendar!

ahhh ok
so the graininess usually comes from low light situations.
Most modern cell phones take great pics in bright light, but suck ass when it's past 6pm.
(someone who knows more about cameras can probably 'shed some light' on the reasoning...  as far as I understand, the graininess is the result of a bump in ISO [light sensitivity])

Exactly!.... that and motion blur usually creep into camera phone shots. Not saying its impossible to get a great shot, just requires more planning and possible a mount or tripod to get a super clean image.
