    Dear Colleagues,

    We’re extending the call for images to be considered for the 2021 California Archives Month poster to Monday, August 30th! 

    This year’s theme, “Strengthening Community Connections,” will be showcased on California’s first fully-virtual poster.


    • Please select up to three images that you feel best represent this theme to outreach@calarchivists.org by 11:59 pm on Monday, August 30, 2021 for a chance to be featured on the poster.
    • Image files must be in the TIFF (.tif) format captured at 300 ppi or higher, if possible. There is a 25 Mb limit for attachments sent to Gmail, so you may need to send multiple submissions if you are sending multiple images in order to stay under the cap.
    • Include in each submission email: 1) the name of the holding organization, 2) the file name, and 3) a description of the image that includes the subject, location (if known), and date (or approximation).
    If you have any questions about the poster or image submission, you can contact SCA’s Communications & Outreach Committee at outreach@calarchivists.org.

    Thank you,
    Veronica Lara and Steve Kutay
    SCA Communications and Outreach Committee, Co-Chairs
