Want to Be a Part of Channing Tatum's 2008 Birthday Gift?

Even before Channing Tatum Unwrapped became Chan's official site, his birthday was a pretty big deal around here. Not surprisingly, this year is not going to be any different.

As most fans already know, Channing Tatum is always good about giving back to his fans, so Channing Tatum Unwrapped wants to once again give you, his fan, the opportunity to give back to him.

Did you miss your chance to be a part of last year's fan mosaic that we sent Chan for his birthday? Well, don't miss your chance to be a part of this year's gift to our favorite actor.

If you are a Fabulous Channing Tatum Fan anywhere in the world, have a camera, can take a picture of yourself, can write a short birthday message to Chan, and can email the photo and message to me, than you can be a part of this year's gift to Channing Tatum!!!

OK so here's the plan...Using the pictures and messages you send to me, I am going to create a fan scrapbook and send it to Channing for his birthday on April 26th. Each fan can send in one photo of themselves or your favorite photo of Channing with a birthday message.

Here's the important part...To make sure that you can be a part of the gift, please send me as high of a quality photo as you can. Since the scrapbook is actually going to be printed and sent to Chan, the higher the resolution of the photo you send, the better your photo will look in the book.

For best printed results, it's recommended that your photos be at least 1536 x 1024 pixels. Most regular digital cameras automatically take photos at this quality or much higher, so you should not have to do anything special.

You can check this information on your photo by right-clicking on the image in Windows and selecting "Properties" from the drop-down menu. Select the "Summary" tab, and click the "Advanced" button. On Mac OS X, you can select the image and choose "Get Info" from the File menu.

Please take note...Because the size of the book is limited, I can only use the first 100 photos that are sent to me in the proper format.

I encourage fans to get creative. You can have only you in the picture or you can take one with you and all of your friends that love Channing too. Please write a short birthday note to him and add it to the photo. If you are not able to add your message to the photo, you can also send the message in your email, and I will add it to the scrapbook. You can pretty much send whatever you want, but please just keep it clean kids (both the message and the photo) if you would like to be included in the book. ;-)

You should email all questions and the following information to birthday@channingtatumunwrapped.com by April 15, 2008 so I have plenty of time to get the scrapbook to Channing by his birthday:

  • Photo
  • Short Message to Chan
  • Your Name
  • City
  • State (Where Applicable)
  • Country
I know that we all have a ton of Channing's pictures, but you will have the privilege of saying that he has a picture of you. Like last year, all of the photos I receive will also be posted in the Channing Tatum Unwrapped Photo Gallery. On April 26th, I will post a digital version of the scrapbook on CTU so everyone can see the gift and can see if their photo made it into the book.

Oh and did I mention that anyone who contributes to this year's birthday gift by the deadline will automatically be entered in a drawing for a photo personally autographed by Channing? Again, I can only accept the first 100 photos for the book, so start sending in your fabulous fan photos today!!!

Love Channing Tatum?

I will post an electronic version of the gift on the blog on April 26th. That's when everyone will be able to see who made it in the book. Everyone's submissions will be posted in the CTU photo gallery regardless if fans make it in the book or not.
