Worlds Photos Selection - your vote needed

Post by jimc » Tue Feb 24, 2015 5:54 pm

Dear all, I've been slowly picking out a selection of my favourites from Robert Muller's hundreds of worlds photos. What I'd like to do is to pick out 20 or 30 of the very best and include them in a Worlds gallery on the International website, and also in the random image galleries on the front page of the International site. This is where you folks come in! I also need to write short captions for each one.

So what I'd like all of you to do is to pick out your favorites from this list http://www.intcanoe.org/icimages/2014worlds/robertmuller/ and if possible also work out a 20 word or so caption which amongst other things mentions who's in the photo (if its not the whole fleet!). Post what you've come up with on the forum on this Worlds Photo Selection thread together with the file name against the link and I'll take it as votes for the best. Pick all the ones you really like, no need to just pick one. I'm trying to put names on the page, but I'm dreadful at faces...

If you'd rather be all web 2.0 then go to this flickr album and put your captions there.

I have a small bet with myself that I get less than 15 votes/captions but feel very free to prove me wrong. This is after all our website, not mine, and I'd dearly like to have more of you involved.

Other ways you could help with the International website would be:

Produce some alternate headline graphics...
  • The guidelines are these:
    Background colour of the page is RGB 255.255.203, so it must work with this
    Graphic should be 630 pixels by 120 pixels
    Background should be predominantly blue/blue gray
    Text should be predominantly yellow or white
    Text should feature International Canoe/International Sailing Canoe/some appropriate variation as the main content, or the equivalent in your own language
    If you use photos we need to organise copyright permission so I need at least the email of the photographer
    I've knocked up two or three for you folks to do better than so fire up photoshop or whatever and go for it:-)
Translate pages into other languages.
  • I have a multilingual version of the International website almost ready to go, but my language skills are totally inadequate and Google's seem to be little better.
    Its very bad calling ourselves an International class without even the main pages in say French, German and Swedish.
I look forward to being buried in votes, captions, graphics and translations (if only!)

Agreed.....but 373 comes a close second.

I can see a theme emerging.

Anything with more than five boats in the image. 598 and 041 get my vote. Anybody with a camera can take an awesome picture of an IC going fast. 34 of them starting in heavy air is rarer and makes for better marketing material.
