Things contributors need to know
All the info you'll need...
We are asking you to submit images of Newcastle and surrounding areas that were taken between New Years Eve 1999 and this year, 2020. We also need information about the photo: who took it, when it was taken, what it shows and why you have chosen to submit it.
They don’t have to be perfect photos, as long as they have some quality that makes them special.
We hope many people will respond, so we think a limit of four submissions per person is probably reasonable. A short series of photos that show a single event can count as one submission for this purpose. If you only have one favourite image, that’s fine.
They have to be your photos, or you have to have permission to submit them. You will be giving permission for them to be published by us in this book (and who knows, maybe reprints of the book?) and also for possible promotional activities directly connected to the book. All photos used in the book will be credited.
We can’t say for sure until we come to the point of assembling the book. As publishers of the book, we will have the final say over what we use. That won’t mean we don’t like the images that aren’t used: it’s just that space will be limited and it’s inevitable that not all will be used. It’s also possible that the book may be published in E-book form.
The plan is to publish the book around November 2020, if that proves possible. The quantity will depend on circumstances at that time, and the retail price won’t be known until we get quotes from printers. We plan to print the book in Newcastle. The retail price of the book will depend on the strength of the Australian dollar, the size of the print run, number of pages, paper quality, style of binding and a few other factors.
