Photos for the 2008 NSS Members Manual Cover Wanted by Meredith Hall Johnson 2008 Members Manual Editor
It's time to start putting together the 2008 issue of the NSS Members Manual. I am looking for a cover photograph and need your help. Please send me a small-sized photo via e-mail (to firstname.lastname@example.org) before the deadline, which is February 1, 2008. Photos can come from anyone who is an NSS member (please include your number with your e-mail). Photos that have been previously published in NSS publications are NOT eligible. Photos that have been entered in the Photo Salon at Convention are eligible.
Pretty much any caving photo is okay to enter. More than five entries must be sent to me on a CD (these can and should be high resolution): Meredith Hall Johnson, 8061 Kittiwake CT, Springfield, VA 22153. Anything sent or postmarked after February 1 will not be considered. Please spread the word around to all your grotto members. The only stipulations are that cavers in the photo cannot be easily identified, nor any "bad" caving practices illustrated, such as someone touching a formation or not wearing a helmet.
Whoever gets their photo chosen gets to write a short biography for page 1 of the publication. How cool is that? Start looking through your cave photos now!
Last year's front cover photo was by a caver in Alaska who had not done much cave photography before, but took a very cool photo--remember the ice cave shot? So you never know whose photo will get picked, but it sure won't be yours if you don't submit it!
