Hope Springs Eternal

We can still hope.

Hi there everybody!

First off, thank you all so much for taking the time to submit photos to me for our annual contest for our Gift Shop calendar. The response we got was overwhelming, and we're thrilled with all of the photos. It was really hard to narrow down our choices for the 12 main photos that will be featured in each month of the calendar, but the selections have been made and the winners have been notified.

You are receiving this email because your submission has not been chosen as one of the large, main photos - but please do not despair! If you are familiar with the calendar, you know that in addition to the main photo at the top of every month, we include numerous smaller pictures throughout the calendar grid pages. It's my mission this year to include as many of the appropriate submissions as possible within the calendar as a whole - so there is a very good chance that your photo will still be included! (Keep in mind that the photos need to meet our resolution requirements in order to be printed - certain submissions, unfortunately, are too low-resolution to include in the final printed piece.) As promised, ALL submitted photos will be posted to our website in a photo slide show; the details and links to the slide show will be published in GDB's May enewsletter, due out next week.

So thank you again for submitting all of your great pictures, and I hope everyone looks forward to seeing the finished results (the calendar should be available in July).

Hmmm... where have I seen this before...? Oh! I know, in my inbox today! Well, as she says, we should not despair, we could be in the sidebars ;) I was trying hard to take good photos this year, but I will try even harder next year!

I got the same e-mail. :) I don't aim for the main picture anymore, just the sidebar. :)
