Voice material for 2011 is needed
« on: December 30, 2010, 06:17:54 pm »
The UFWDA Voice is this organization's prime means of reaching our immediate members and the wider 4x4 community. As a test of general interest, a copy of the first online Voice was loaded onto www.myebook.com and their statistics show over 30,000 reads since then.

We need your help to source the material that makes up the bulk of the content... stories of four wheeling and work done to allow a future for our recreation.

We can't guarantee to run everything that is offered but we'll try to get it published.
The 'online' format of Voice allows wider use of photography and the use of 'photo essays' is an option. We can highlight over a page or two, images of why we go four wheeling and the delights of particular places.

We are about to start compiling an edition for publishing in Feb 2011 and need 'stuff' for that now.

Please send material, or simply an outline of a proposed article etc, to editor@ufwda.org so that it is received before 10 Jan 2011

With the first edition out of the way in 2011, the deadlines for the year are... 20 April, July, October and January.

Again UFWDA are looking for 4x4 travel stories and pictures plus stories of activities such as community work etc.

Pictures look good in Voice and we can assemble your good ones into a 'photo essay'. Send a link to a photo 'parking' site or email small reference files for evaluation to editor@ufwda.org

Spring is happening in the Northern Hemisphere and the 20 April deadline is apparently being overlooked in the excitement!

We need your help to create every issue of Voice as it is the 'face' of UFWDA and four wheeling.

Send your material quickly to editor@ufwda.org

Planning for the Summer 2011 edition of Voice is underway with the material deadline set at 20 July.  There must be lots of events, stories and photos out of your four wheeling in summer so far, so tell the world about it.

If you've an idea for a story, send a draft or outline and we'll see if it fits this edition, the same with pictures.... send a link or small files for review. You may be the next to be published!

Now we're up to the Autumn edition and looking for stories and pictures of your 4x4 activities and adventures. A great cover shot must exist out there too.

It's all going to be needed before the end of October. Send to editor@ufwda.org
