2016 GALT Calendar

The deadline for 2016 Calendar photo submissions is August 16th, 2015.

It's time to start submitting your photos for the 2016 calendar! Photo entry for the calendar is for GALT Members and their greyhounds. Some of our fosters take some delightful photos, too. It doesn't matter where you adopted your greyhound, but you must be a GALT member to enter a photo.

The best rule of thumb for images large enough to go to print nicely is to set your digital camera to the largest format it will take.

Somewhere in the range of 8" X 10" at 300 dpi/ppi, or 1280 X 960 ppi or above is ideal. 640 X 480 ppi is the absolute lowest resolution that can be used. If your file is only 100 KB to 20 KB, it's way too small.

Over the last few years smart phone cameras have greatly improved and are capable of large format photos. Lighting and crisp detail can still be a challenge, however.

JPEG, TIFF, or BMP are acceptable formats. If you've done any photo editing yourself, please send a copy of the original, too. If photos are very large, you're welcome to send them one or two at a time.

Now for the tough part: please limit the number of photos you send to six. The calendar is for Greyhounds, large sighthounds, and sighthound mixes only; no other pets, babies or people in the photos, please. Although we tend to give higher priority to those who didn't make the calendar the previous year, please don't let that discourage you from sending photos, even if your Greyhound got a large photo in 2015.

Email photos to . Please include your name(s) with the dogs' names, and include the word "calendar" in the subject!!!
