'Beyond the Pale' is always glad to received fans' photographs from Procol Harum concerts, as well as scans of tickets, posters and flyers, setlists, reviews/interviews, and specially-written fan reports/impressions/reviews about the gigs: please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
To avoid confusion, and make it easy for us to use your submissions promptly, it would be helpful if you could do the following:
|Labelling photos etc||
Save your photo/report/scan etc so that the filename shows who you are, the date of the event it reports, and a sequence number:
date first (like 100613 ... that means 2010, the sixth month,
the thirteenth day)
So if Zeke sends 43 pictures from the Procol gig in Chicago on 20 June, his first shot will be named "100620-zeke-001.jpg" and his last "100620-zeke-043.jpg"
This means we don't end up with a dozen pictures called 'procol1.jpg' or a bunch labelled things like "IMG00000049.jpg', which make it hard to keep track
In most cases the software you use to connect your camera to your
computer will offer a simple routine for labelling a batch of
How large should the photos be?
|Send photos large rather than small, but don't attach too many to each e-mail. If you can send them in batches of five at a time, that will be ideal|
It's always nice if you can write your own captions! You can send
those in the e-mail, or attach as a Word document. So your message would
look something like
Please don't trouble to make your own webpage ... we do all that ... just send the photos (labelled as above) and the captions, and we shall compile them
BUT if you don't want to write captions, that's fine: the BtP team will do it (though we can't guess the names of people in photos). So in fact you can send captions for a few photos, if you prefer: just the ones we can't work out by common-sense.
Ideally send these as Word attachments, or type directly into the e-mail message. Any length is welcome: fans all round the world love to read concert impressions and stories, specially if they weren't lucky enough to be able to get to a show. So your writing a report is really appreciated. No need to do anything special in terms of formatting: BtP takes care of all that.
Please look in your local media for reviews and interviews
associated with Procol Harum concerts, and send them to us!
Thanks very much, everyone! We really look forward to receiving your material at email@example.com
