ePHOTOzine book PHOTO request

I don't think I ever explained the process we've gone through to choose the photos for the ePHOTOzine book.

I had the help of several high profile/active members of the site who were briefed to look through the whole gallery section (about 170,000 photos) and select the best ones covering the widest range of subjects and techniques from the widest range of members. As a result we had over 1000 photos selected.

I then arranged many of these (using the site's 500/1000pixel versions) in page layouts for the book. As we do not own copyright (and never intend to), we then started, what's now become an impossible task of contacting everyone requesting use of the photos.

We have sent out 99% of the emails for picture requests for the book. We have a few we are still trying to track down. We have about 50% of the photos uploaded for use.

If you've had an email and forgot to respond or couldn't be bothered or it's hit your spam and is sitting in your delete folder, please respond to say you do or do not want to be included so we can delete your pic or keep it. If you decide to submit please please please follow the simple instructions we have had so many pics that have been uploaded incorrectly which has delayed me and cause so many problems.

If you haven't had a photo request and feel you'd like a photo in the book please send me an email with a link to your portfolio page and I'll consider.

The deadline for all activity is Sunday 16th Oct.

I can say at this stage anyone who's seen the book layouts have looked at the photos in awe. The book is looking fantastic. A superb selection of photos. Makes me even prouder to be part of a fanastic collection of photographers Smile

Pete, may we assume that if those who uploaded images for the book didn't get any error messages, and no reminders in the mail, that the uploads were successful?

I've mailed Rose for a retry, Pete, but when I clicked on the last two requests for 'Sport' I got a photo deleted page....can't recall deleting any sports shots though.

No rush.

Hi Pete

Do you propose to notify members who have had work accepted that they are definitely in the final version of the book - i.e. it may help shift more copies of the book.

I ask as I am under the impression that if permission has been sought to use an image or a larger version requested that this does not mean you'll be in the book that goes to the print press.

I've also seen a thread about how great the cover looks - is the cover available for view or is this folk in ePz towers that have physically seen a mock up?!

Pete, I have obviously missed something here: perhaps I was in hospital at the time. I wasn't aware there was a "procedure". I assumed email was sufficient.

If you need anything further from me let me know! Smile
