SANDY HOOK–In response to the overwhelming popularity of the print edition of its 2012 Shore Shots calendar, the New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium (NJSGC) will offer downloadable monthly desktop calendars showcasing the winning dozen photos from its New Jersey’s Top Ten Beaches Photo Contest. The limited supply of special edition calendars ran out within two weeks of publication, so NJSGC will offer the images for download on its redesigned website, which will be launched in early January.
The print calendars, which were released at the organization’s annual Coast Day NJ event in Cape May, became hot ticket, highly sought-after items. “We were overwhelmed by the positive response to the calendars. What surprised us most was receiving requests for the calendar from states as far away as Michigan and Arizona,” said Kim Kosko, Director of Communications for NJSGC. ”We’re excited to offer the desktop version of the calendar for those who didn’t receive a print copy and even more excited to offer the downloadable images in conjunction with the launch of our new website.”
Each of the twelve images will be available for download on the organization’s website on a month-to-month basis. Visitors to the website will have several options for downloading just the right size image to fit their computer screens and can read a brief introduction about each of the featured photographers. This January the first in the series of desktop images will be available at njseagrant.org.
The New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium is an affiliation of colleges, universities and other groups dedicated to advancing knowledge and stewardship of New Jersey’s marine and coastal environment. NJSGC meets its mission through its innovative research, education and outreach programs. For more information about NJSGC, visit njseagrant.org
