    No. Really, a couple of days is all anyone should need to know if they see their picture or not.

    So...what's the story? Do I just contact Tyler myself about the certificate? Or is there something more ceremonial? Just curious! ;)
  6. Last year I just put my order in with Tyler and he took care of the rest. Congrats!

    I'm pretty sure Josh will let you know. But I'm his official nagger, so I'll send him an email.

    I'm liking the 2016 calendar quite a lot already! :) It's nice have a cute tortoise smile on my cubicle wall at work. :tort:

    Hubby and I were thinking it'd be nice to see -- maybe on next year's calendar -- the tortoises' names, species, the photographers' usernames, and maybe even the location. We definitely couldn't say for sure what all of the species were (which is fun to try to figure out, don't get me wrong) but we thought it would be a nice nod to the contest winners. :)

    Personally, I enjoy seeing the previous and next month (in yellow below) on my calendar so I vote for that if calendar feedback is ever needed. ;) Rest assured, no complaints here; I love my adorable calendar!! :<3::<3:

    I would like species or keeper identities too, but it was determined to be too much work. We'll take it under advisement for next year, though.

    I agree about the information. I also would have liked it. And expected to see it.
    Have past calendars included this?
    It's my first.

    No, we've never identified the tortoises in the past.

    Does it have to be a picture of my turtle? I took a picture and I think its a great picture and would like to submit it, but it is a picture of a wild turtle and not my own turtle. Can I submit this to the contest?

    The contest ended several months ago.
    However, there will likely be a 2017 contest.....
