Please submit photos for cover of 2018 GMAG program guide

We have had the good fortune of finding some terrific photos, each year, to grace the cover of our Great Minnesota Aviation Gathering program guide, and to use for the posters and advertising for the event.  We are rapidly approaching the drop dead date for getting a photo to showcase our event.

This year we would like to ask you, as current members (paid up, so to speak), to submit photos which you think would be appropriate for this noble purpose.

Checklist for submitting photos:

  1. Choose up to 5 photos for submission. I know, this will be a challenge, given many photos you have taken in 2017.  Photos need to be shot within the 2017 calendar year.  They should have some relevance to flying in MN.
  2. Photos should be in files no greater than 25 megabytes. If your email will not allow this size file to be sent, submit the largest it will support and we will find a way to obtain a bigger file for use.
  3. Email photos as attachments to photos@mnpilots.org
  4. Email submitters name, submitters email address, where the photo was taken and when the photo was taken, along with a description of the photo.

The deadline for submission is Friday, January 19, at noon.  The person who submits the winning photo will be honored at the 2018 GMAG Awards Ceremony on Saturday afternoon, April 28, and will be asked to sign release for use of the photograph by the Minnesota Pilots Association in materials which support the 2018 Great Minnesota Aviation Gathering and the Minnesota Pilots Association.

We think this will be a great way to promote our interest in our event.  Thanks for giving this some thought.  I hope you will be able to submit some awesome photos!
