[BPB] 2015 Boards Photobook

Should we do the 2015 book soon?

If so then we can get back on schedule for the 2016 edition later in the year.

Yes, hopefully. Am happy to supply moral support. Doing actual stuff is a bit more difficult due to time and location.

Distance???? Ahem ...... I am in a different hemisphere! ( I know what you mean though)

Moral support is good, immoral support can be better.

I'm afraid that this time I'm definitely unable to help due to work commitments and zero spare time :-( I'd love to participate though!

I am happy to put the book together again (Editor) but cannot do other things as I am too far away.

Would you still be able to do some proof reading?

The roles which I think we need to be filled are;
  1. Project Coordinator
  2. Editor
  3. Finance and Orders
  4. Publicity
  5. Launch organiser
  6. Photowalk coordinator (if we do one)

The major job is the Project Coordinator who has to keep track of the project and liase with the publishers. It is the job that Tiriel has done so well the last few editions (along with finance and launch)

Volunteers?

I can take on role (2) as Editor again.

Anyone else willing to do any of the other roles?

I am hoping it will but so far there is not a lot of enthusiasm.

Maybe a mention in the main forum as many do not not visit the sub forums.

Am not located in Ireland - but not as far distant as CabanSail.

#1 Co-ordination or #3 Finance and orders - I'll hesitantly volunteer for one of them.

This is not some sort of apology, but i really haven't a clue about any of the 'technical' stuff involved. No lack of enthusiasm from my side though. [maybe with lots of guidance and backup-support i could lend a helping hand or two]

I will handle getting the book itself ready for publication. Have the template already from the last edition. That is not a problem.

The main thing is someone to liaise with the publishers and then organise the finances.

After that it's the launch.

If some could promote the book it would also be great as the last edition had a really good price. Fingers crossed we can do it for the same amount this time.
