Leica Users Group call for 2013 yearbook submissions!

It's the final two weeks of the year and the Leica Users Group (LUG) is looking for more photography submissions from photographers the world over.

The project has been going on since 2006 (if i recall correctly) and $5 of every book sale goes to Project H.O.M.E., an organization dedicated to providing shelter, medical care, and vocational training to homeless individuals. For more information about this highly-rated organization, visit their website at www.projecthome.org.

Personally, I have been involved with the LUG since 2004 and have submitted two photos every year for the book since it became an annual publication in 2006. It's a great endeavor by longtime LUG and RFF member Jim Shulman and part of the proceeds go to an extraordinary charity.

Submissions don't need to have been taken with a Leica or even a rangefinder. This is not a judged competition, it is just a collection of excellent work and the final product is always outstanding.

Please send your submissions to: lugyearbook at yahoo dot com.

Two images per person, please. Don't link or send entire archives.
Each photo must be in jpg format and at least 1 megabyte.
In your email, incude the file name, a title and what equipment you used to make the photo.

Like I said, this is a great project and it has raised a significant amount of money for Project H.O.M.E. so the more submissions we can get, the better the book will be and it can sell itself based upon the merit of the work inside. In every past edition there have been some amazing photographs which easily could stand next to Salgado's, Bresson's or W. E. Smith's.

So get those images off to Jim ASAP! Submissions will be closed in only slightly more than a week and Jim has a lot of work to do with the layout. The book will be available for on-demand printing on January 1st from Blurb.com. To see previews of, or to purchase past editions, go to Blurb.com and search LUG yearbook.

Thanks all and I look forward to seeing some new RFF names in the yearbook this year!

The LUG is Leica Users Group. http://leica-users.org/

It is simply an email listserv with a whole bunch of folks who like photography.
There are a few eminent photographers who are members but most are regular folks. You don't have to shoot a Leica to join and there aren't really any membership requirements. Posting photos and engaging in conversation are encouraged.

Every year since 2006 we've put together a book of images submitted by LUG members and anyone else who wants to show photos they have taken. $5 of each book sale through Blurb.com goes to a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania charity which helps homeless people.

Sent in a B&W and a color photograph at 3:47PM and then started the commute home.

Arrive and opened email and Jim acknowledged the email at 4:04PM!

Certainly there may be time for a few more submissions before the final edit is complete.

Great. Thanks. Is there any way to subscribe/join the group without having emails constantly delivered to your inbox? Is there some sort of web interface you can use?

There is a compressed digest mode which arrives in two or three emails a day that contain all the threads of the day. Many people set up separate email accounts for just LUG mail since reading the digest just takes you out of the discussion sometimes and replying to one email is easier than selecting the digest link then replying to that (or accidentally replying to the whole digest issue!)

Tom,
I suppose it better be with Ted cracking the whip from across the strait!
All the best to you and Tuulikki! I hope you had a great Christmas and have a happy New Year!
