FADU Yearbook 2015
1 Attachment(s)
Les McLean has kindly offered to edit and produce a FADU yearbook once again for 2015, so I cordially extend an invitation to all FADU friends to submit entries for inclusion in this year's edition.

Like last year you can submit up to four photographs for consideration and at least one will be included, although once again Les has the last word.
Anything goes, as long as it's 100% analogue and, as before, a maximum paper size of 10x8 or A4 with a border to allow for easy handling and scanning.

This year Les proposes to give the book a simpler look without an 'essay' or any biographies so no need for any artist's statements.

The closing date for entries is 1st September giving us more than four months to prepare and submit photographs! So no excuses! With a long lead time it's hoped that as many FADU friends as are able will have the opportunity to be part of the book this year... including me! So get thinking about those masterpieces now and start the ball rolling.

All being well the yearbook will be ready in good time for Christmas.

Les will provide weekly updates and sneak previews of submissions and progress, so we'll all be kept on our toes and not allowed any of 'the dog ate my homework' type excuses for not handing in our work. :D

So... four photos to Les by September 1st...

Let's go! :)

A pdf entry form is attached to this post for you to print out, fill in and include with your submission.

On my calendar with a personal deadline of August 1st to get them in the mail! :)

Count me in, plenty of time to sort myself out.

Les - Just a thought but if I wanted to could I submit a home developed slide?

Nice idea Ian but I'm afraid I have to say it cannot be allowed on the grounds that in my view the image becomes a photograph only when it is printed. After all the forum members supporting the book will produce a print from their negative to submit for selection therefore I feel that you should produce a print from your transparency.

Hi Les, thanks for the reply, no worries, as I said just a thought.

Will stick to prints.

The 2015 Entry form says "Details of Photographs entered". Does this simply mean title or is more information required?

It's up to you what information you provide, but in essence, yes, a title.

David Hall has started the ball rolling. His 4 prints arrived this morning, thank you David. I'll post a scan of one of them in the next couple of days.

Posting to give myself a boot to take part in this. Will get some prints off in the next few weeks.
