At KansasFest 2009, we debuted a 2010 wall calendar featuring the best color photos from 14 years of Juiced.GS. At KansasFest 2012, we'll again make available a calendar that will offer Apple II users monthly inspiration of their favorite personal computer — except this time, you get to decide what the calendar will look like!
We've chosen 40 photos that represent a diversity of Apple II hardware, software, personalities, and events, from which you're invited to choose your favorite 12 for inclusion in the final calendar. The dozen photos with the most votes will be assigned a month and printed in glossy full-color, with the resulting calendars selling for $15 in person at KansasFest 2012 and $16 online afterward. Voting is not a commitment to purchase, so everyone is welcome to participate.
Let's make 2013 a year to remember. The poll closes on Thursday, May 31, 2012 at 11:59 PM EDT, so cast your vote today!
