BOTM calendar?

Is it out there? I haven't been able to find anything about one. Or is this a new idea?

I'd have to say a new idea, since it's the first I've heard of it.

I think it would be kind a of cool idea of having a calendar of the winners from the past year.

Does anyone know a good place someone could have something this made? I did a quick search and only came of with a few that only did mass quanities 25, 50 or more.

The thought occurred that a higher resolution photo will be needed in order to be of decent quality to print an upper section of a calendar (assuming the typical calendar with an upper photo and lower dates).
Most of the photos used on the BOTM contests are often resized for quicker page loading.

Actually, from a legality standpoint, you'd have to get permission from each owner to use their photos due to copyright reasons.

Just make the entries email you high resolution pictures as part of entering the contest. Have a release required, that by entering the contest, you give up your rights to the photo and it is part of the public domain. An issue might come up with pictures that are taken by someone other than the owner of the bike. Then the forum would need a release from the photographer.

Damn copyright laws.

Hell, the way I look at if its online it should be fair game. If someone wanted to make a calendar/poster or even a printed picture of my bike or something I put on here just let me know so I can get one too.
