Information on voting results, pricing, shipping dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
UPDATE: OCT 23rd
Semi-finalist picked, working on backend system, voting will start tonight. 
UPDATE: OCT 23rd Part II

  • You can cast your vote here. and spread the word via facebook.
  • Non MyCorgi.com member CAN also vote.
  • Pick the top 12 out of 17 semi-finalists.
  • Last day to vote OCT 30th.

OCT 26 UPDATE:

 

I am half way done contacting all the people who submitted their photo, the other half will hear from me by the end of Friday. If you don't hear from my by Saturday, that means A: You are not MyCorgi.com member / B: You provided wrong member url info. I will be flying overseas this weekend, so I'll have no emails / message until next week.

 

All members who followed the photo requirements / re-submit proper replacement photo, will have at least ONE photo make it to the calendar. I will address those who missed the deadline next week.

 

OCT 28th UPDATE:

 Hello corgi people! I managed to contact everyone who submitted photos, I think there's only a handful of people that I can't get a hold of due to incomplete / wrong info. 

 

Depending on the number of qualified photos received for the 365 calendar, those who missed the deadline may*** get a second chance to submit their photo (slots will be very limited). I'll make an announcement sometime next week.

 

Update on the wall calendar:

Thank you for voting, last day to vote is Oct 30th. Once the votes are in, we'll work on post production and get ready to print. Thanksgiving ETA is still on track.

 

Can you tell me who made the 365 calendar?

No, but I will - once the calendar is complete, please respect my inbox :)

 

NOV 22 update:

wall calendar available

DEC 2nd UPDATE:

The 365 calendar is still in the works, it should be done next week and send to the printer. 1000 - 3000 will be printed. ETA is before xmas. I will announce who made the 365 (366) calendar next week.

The 365 will be available here on MyCorgi.com, you will be able to purchase it via paypal / google checkout / visa / master. They will all be fulfilled by me personally.

DEC 8th UPDATE:

Okay folks, I've got good news and bad news. 

Good News: I've got 2XX qualified photos for the 366 calendar, for those who missed the deadline, you are welcome to submit your photo with the above guidelines, email it to mycorgi.com@gmail.com subject: 365 calendar, make sure you provide your dog's name, city and state. As soon as we fill the 366 slot, it'll go into print

Bad News: Due to the number of qualified photos present, the 366 calendar will be delayed, at this point eta is Jan 2012 :( I am so sorry, I really wish we can make it before xmas.

I will update everyone when the 366 slot is filled. Hopefully soon.

wow, so pretty! It reminds me of my desktop image. From Zippythecorgi.com. Check out the second image down:

Thank you both!  I sometimes use it as my desktop photo at work.  I love the way her orange safety vest (it was archery season for deer) echoes the color of the leaves, but really the way she is looking back over her shoulder is pure happenstance.   We'd only had her about 2 months when I snapped this, and it was her first off-leash hike with us. 
Thank you for your understanding Beth :)
Made my submission.   My computer would not let me pick anything but 2.1MB or 5.2MB so I sent the 2.1, BUT I do have the original at 6MB if it is needed....
Thanks for submitting Beth! no problem, I'll check out the pic tomorrow.

Hey, Sam... ?

Quick question -- when you say leave the photoshopping to you? I do work with some of my finished shots in PS, especially ones I'm hard-printing from for myself. There's a couple of photos that I've been going between and one of them has been touched up slightly on the levels/saturation in PS -- but I'd prefer it to be entered that way, if that makes sense.  It just really makes the photo print and look far better colorwise.

Is that all right? Or should I simply pick a completely untouched photo? A few of these I simply don't have the un-retouched files for, due to a computer HD issue.

Yep, I had already adjusted some of the levels on mine because it was an existing light photo indoors and was very contrasty....
Thats ok Beth, if it doesn't workout, we'll ask you for an unaltered version :)
Hi Shepdog, not a problem, I didn't need to do any photoshop work on your pic last year, jjust make sure the color profile is set to cmyk, 300 dpi, go ahead and make your adjustment and we should be in business :) Looking forward to see your submission this year!
Eek! I don't think my photo was set at 300 dpi OR cmyk! Do I need to resubmit it?
No problem chris, we do that to get every picture ready for print anyway, no worries :)

Thank you, Sam. Yeah, I'd corrected that one a bit last year too. :) No problem, 300 dpi is usually what I set on for print. :)

 

Aw, thanks. Having a HARD time picking one shot, but that happens to me every year. ;) Man, I'm down to the final two shots I love and are seasonal, and I think I'll just have to flip a coin. ;)
