Just got a very cool phone call!

I got a call from an ad agency in New York who found this shot of PNC Park on my web site:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/210/thumb/72068.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/210/thumb/72068.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

They were inquiring about using the shot in some sort of advertisement related to Chevy and the All-Star game. The ad would appear in USA Today, Sports Illustrated and elsewhere!

I don't know anything more than that at this point, but if it hadn't been for a DPC challenge, I wouldn't have taken this shot in the first place -- so consider me grateful!

Many thanks!

I'm just glad I didn't hang up on her. I didn't recognize the name in the caller ID, and I was 99% sure I was dealing with a telemarketer...!

I'll fill in the details when I learn them myself!

Just got more details about how they want to use the shot:

50,000 All Star game programs to be distributed at game
One ad in USA Today (full page)
One ad in Sports Illustrated (full page)
(possible) ad in Pittsburgh local papers for one month

Now if I can figure out what on Earth to charge for such a thing...!

just guessing, i'm thinking somewhere between 3-5k. i'm usually pleasantly surprised when i ask 'them' how much they typically pay for such usage. you might consult with some of the stock price calculators, as well (like fotoquote). good luck!
05/22/2006 09:16:33 PM · #19
Wow I sure dont know Photo prices because 3-5k seems low for all the programs, plus 2 full page ads in 2 of the most most read mags/papers in the US.
Dude this is huge, huh!
05/22/2006 09:21:07 PM · #20
Awesome news!! That is way cool, Congratulations!
05/22/2006 09:21:45 PM · #21

Yeah, this is a biggie for me! I'm planning on calling her back tomorrow, and I'm hoping I can keep myself from giggling like a school girl over the opportunity! :)
