S2KUK Calendar COMPETITION

DEADLINE 23rd OCTOBER 2020

We will be producing another S2KUK Calendar for 2021, so get your best picture out and, submit your photo entry by email!  

Due to COVID this year, we will accept Photos from whenever you took them!

Please READ and FOLLOW the rules and instructions below ESPECIALLY the ones in red!  (You would not beleive how many people do not send a suitably sized file or haven't named it properly!! PLEASE HELP US! Laughing)

RULES AND INSTRUCTIONS

We all want to see great shots of the S2000, so we have standards for submissions.

  • Photos need to meet a minimum resolution for print purposes. That minimum is "high resolution" - at least 150 dpi, in tif, png, jpg formats. As a guide, photos should generally be AT LEAST 4-5 MB in size or more.
  • ONE ENTRY ONLY per person (so choose wisely) You may if you wish supercede your entry as many times as you want.
  • The photo could have been taken BY YOU any time.
  • You can obscure license plates if you wish.
  • Photos need to be cropped "loose" this is to avoid having some great submissions that we can’t use because the image was already cropped too tight to the S2000.  Try and leave some space around the S2000 so the image can be cropped to fit the calendar. 
  • No watermarks allowed.
  • Images must be work and family safe.

How to make a submission:

  • When you have a photo to submit, rename it with the following format:  "Real_Name.jpg" (YOUR ACTUAL NAME not  Real_Name.jpg! YES people do this!!)
  • Email them to: calendar@s2kuk.com
  • Photos have to be emailed for entry. This is your tacit consent that they can be used in the calendar, and on the S2KUK website.
  • Submissions not following the criteria above will be rejected without notice so please follow the instructions! 

Submission deadline 23rd OCTOBER 2020 at 23:59 Submissions will then be put on the S2KUK website for voting.

Submissions MUST be EMAILED and THE MIN SIZE and NAMED PROPERLY.   If they are not emailed, they are not entered.

TIPS

  • Photos shouldn't just be "driveway" shots, no hose and bucket in the background. You need to be creative, artistic, and unique! At least find a scenic spot to take the pic!
  • Lots of people take the ubiquitous 1/4 front or 1/4 rear view, and we can only have so many similar poses in a calendar, so taking the time to do something different and interesting will count toward the submissions.
  • The calendar is not for profit, and stresses the love we have for our cars. 

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT COPYRIGHT

By entering this calendar competition you are giving licence to S2KUK (UK S2000 Owners Club) to use your image for publication in the calendar and on the S2KUK website.  

IF YOU DO NOT OWN COPYRIGHT of the image - that is if YOU did not take the photograph it will not qualify for the competition. 

DO NOT ENTER WITH A PHOTO YOU DID NOT TAKE, as it can have serious consequences if it is published. 

By entering a photo to the competition you are agreeing to indemnify UK S2000 Owners Club against any action regarding copyright should you have entered a photo of which you do not own copyright.

Memberships Extended FOR ONE YEAR

It's been a tough year so far for many of us.  We hope everyone is safe and well, and managing to cope in difficult circumstances.

As a club we have had multiple events and meets cancelled or postponed including some of our favourites; both our Megameets this year, Our Ace Café meet and Silverstone Classic to name just a few - it has affected so many different activities which we all enjoy.  

The Committee have got together (virtually) and discussed how we can support.

 

We are extending everyone's membership by AN EXTRA YEAR, so your membership will now run until 30th April 2022. Applies to current members, renewing members and new members!

 

New members can join here


Due to the strong financial position of the club we have taken this measure to ensure everyone has the chance to enjoy the benefits for another year. It should also encourage some of those who have been unable/uncertain about renewing, to do so.  We hope it will encourage new memberships too - so please do tell those you know who may not be members about this offer which is also open to all new and renewing members.

We will not send additional membership packs out next year, but will review if we send replacement membership cards out with the new end date nearer the time. You do not need to do anything to take up this offer!

COVID-19 - Effect on S2KUK

The Club Committee have been carefully following developments along with Government and WHO advice, to understand the impact it may have on the Club and our activities.  We take the safety of our members and their health very seriously. 

You may already have seen and heard about a number of car related events being cancelled, and we are working with various organisers of events to deal with those which we were going to attend as a club.

The Committee have discussed our position with regard to club organised and attended meets and events and have come to the unfortunate decision, in the interests of health and in line with government advice, we are going to cancel all meets and events through to the end of April.  This includes monthly pub meetings, shows and driving events.  We have also taken the decision to postpone Megameet 19 at the beginning of May - all attendees have been informed of their options.

We are keeping close to the situation and all event organisations we work with and will maintain a 'watching brief' beyond this date.

You will see these events being cancelled through our usual channels; google calendar, facebook and S2KI forums.  For those you have purchased tickets for via the various event organisations, please contact them directly regarding their refund polcies.

So if you are feeling at a loss of what to do, need a break from self-isolation, working from home, or a rest from one of the many services working hard during the situation, head over to our members only facebook group where we hope to keep lots of dialogue going and some fun and interesting things to do!

If you have any questions, please get in touch.

Best wishes to you and your family.

Ian, Sue, Colin, Sophie & Steve
Your S2KUK Club Committee

🚨 S2KUK Coronavirus Update 🚨

The S2KUK committee are working hard to keep up to date with the latest situation with regard to the COVID-19 virus outbreak and the effect it may have on events we are organising or attending.  As we get any news on affected activities we will update our members via our website, email and social media channels. Our primary objective is that our members remain safe and that we are compliant with any UK Government guidelines.

For those attending Megameet 19 with us, we are working on contingency plans should any action be required and we hope to have an update to you directly via email in the next few days with our plan.  

Thanks

Ian, Sue, Colin, Sophie, Steve
