🏆 Let's Win Some More Awards! 🏆

Let's win some more awards!

The Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show is an event the club will be attending this year. Tickets are now on sale: https://www.s2kuk.com/news/Lancaster-Insurance-Classic-Motor-Show-NEC-810th-November-2019/321 

The event is also a backdrop for the Classic & Sports Car Club Awards. S2KUK seems to be going from strength to strength and is now in regular attendance at many classic car events throughout the country. The club even won best club stand at Silverstone Classic in July!

We were nominated in the award for best Car Run (Norfolk Mega Meet) last year so we'd like to participate in the awards again this year and hopefully come away with some silverware. We're looking for enthusiastic people to put together our entries which are usually between 200 and 500 words. No writing experience necessary and the club can work with you to help craft and finalise the entry. 

2019 categories are expected to be announced in early October but it would be good to get some ideas going. Some of last years categories that would be relevant for the club were:

  • Club Personality of the Year (the person who has done the most for a model, marque or club over the past 12 months)
  • Best Contribution to Charity
  • Best Contribution by a Youngster
  • Club of the Year
  • Lancaster Insurance Club Initiative of the Year
  • Best Club Run/Rally
  • Best Club Show/Event
  • Best Club Website


Things like Euromeet, Silverstone Classic spring to mind but there loads of other local meets and events that reflect the social and diverse spirit of the club.

So let us know if you feel you can help out. Even if it just suggesting ideas in a category.  Send your entry ideas to awards@s2kuk.com 

📸 Get your Cameras out for the Calendar Competition 📸

NOW we are into meet and event season it's surely time for the cameras to be out!  We will be producing another S2KUK Calendar, so get your pictures or cameras out, submit your photo entries via email!  

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 30th SEPTEMBER 2019 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.
