The Journal plans to produce a full-color, 12 month, 2017 calendar. The opportunity to have your horse or pony featured on a month of your choosing is available - but this offer is on a first-come basis. These calendars will be available to the ASPC/AMHR/ASPR membership and used for breed promotion as well. They will be offered at a nominal fee to cover printing/shipping costs, if necessary.
With important dates and deadlines included on each month, it will surely be seen and referenced by many throughout the entire year and will be ready by the start of show season (first show on the schedule is currently Feb 10th). The cost for sponsoring a month with a full color, glossy photo of your horse/pony is $350. (That’s less than the cost of a full page color ad in The Journal). You will receive 10 calendars at no cost to you for sponsoring a month as well. Photo requirements are 300 dpi at a minimum print size of 10” wide and 8” tall with full permission for reproducing/reprinting (from photographer, if applicable) Click here for release form to be signed by the photographer if a professional photo is submitted.
The photo should only be of the animal(s) (this is not a farm advertisement although your farm name/contact info will be noted on the calendar portion, in limited text). It is preferred that the photo should coincide with the month chosen but absolutely not a requirement (winter scene for winter months; patriotic for July; etc). Your month will be securely reserved when payment is made. Final approval of photo submitted will be The Journal publications manager and Journal committee.
The layout/design will be done in-house and you will receive a digital proof of your page for your review. I hope you will find this a great opportunity to promote the beautiful breeds we represent and showcase your special pony or mini!
Please contact Susan as soon as possible to reserve your month before it is spoken for. I appreciate your support of The Journal, the club and our wonderful animals and look forward to creating a colorful and useful calendar for ASPC/AMHR/ASPR/NSPPR/ASPIR members.
Thank you and wishing you all a safe and happy New Year!
