Right, that's the judges sorted, both Zingari and Kimbo are on board.
Thumb

Zingari has, I understand, during his daily ebay crawl for sub-25 bag 993s, purchased Len Goodman's now redundant Severrrn! paddle in anticipation of some fairly mediocre smudges.
Laughing

Kim did make an offer on Paul Hollywood's bootcut's but apparently the groin whiff was worse than the carpet smell attached to a leaky Targa so the offer was immediately withdrawn. Although with Kim having spent many a happy hour in a leaky Targa I am somewhat surprised.
Surprised

So, boys and girls as per rules on previous post, get snapping on moody, seasonal pics.

I am inclined to make a minor rule amendment such that an unlimited number of pictures may be submitted, as opposed to one, ideally one for each season on the understanding that only one picture of any car makes it to the 2018 Calendar. I only said this to spare the poor judges from having to view numerous dodgy snaps of Rita from Reading splashed across your Suicide Savannah ruched leather hardbacks.

I now know that, in fact, the judges will take kindly to such offerings dropping into their boxes (inc tel nos), so better label them NSFW if Rita is making herself visible.

So . . . Pictures to be submitted by PM directly to the two judges and NOT posted on the Forum, they must be previously unpublished here or elsewhere. The PMs must include written consent/licence to use the Photograph for the purpose submitted.

I shall bump the thread at the beginning of each month to ensure the flow of snaps . . .

Happy to take any further suggestions so as to improve final result etc . . .

PS I am fully conversant with the Bribery Act 2010 so anybody who offers or promises to give the judges any financial or other advantage in relation to this will be immediately reported to the Illuminati and will be forced to read all the threads regarding Highway's interminable search for his Garage Whore . . .

Judge

I was going to ignore the rules until I read the dreadful enormity of the penalty! Will keep my powder dry until next years Le Mans "sheep in wolfs clothing...aka... mutton done up as lamb" outing!

I've got one pic already Thumb Nothing of 'Rita' though Embarassed

I'm down on the south coast this weekend so no access to wifi.

Have we got a closing date so I can manage my expectations?

Great start! Keep 'em coming!

Closing date September 30th 2017 for submission, Judges then have two weeks to deliberate, ready for publication and big reveal in November (or maybe not! you may have to buy the Calendar to see who's made it! Grin ) Gives time for publication etc for Christmas rush.

As I mentioned, two Charidees to be announced, one nominated by each of the judges for all profits split equally between the two.

4. You assign a licence to use the photograph for the purposes of the publication of 2018 911UK 993 calendar.


9. Final date for photos to be received for judging September 30th 2017 (gives time for summer autumn and winter shots)


Come on Zingers, try and keep up... damn it man, you're a judge! A respected memeber of society... well, a judge at any rate!
