POTM Contest Rules
We're rolling out a new POTM Contest that we're really excited about! This first month will be short, since we're starting in the middle of the month, but it'll get the contest started. The new contest will work as follows:
1. Previous month winner (I'm doing it this month to get it started) sets up a contest thread with an introductory post that outlines the parameters of the contest e.g. "colorful tanks" - Must be a theme that both freshwater and saltwater tanks can compete in.
2. Members post their images to that thread. 1 picture per month no exception.
3. At the end of the month the thread starter chooses a winner and posts (on the same thread).
4. No conversation other than a short congratulations to the winner at end of month. One word comments are prohibited .
I'll be starting the first contest. To make it fair, I'll have the staff vote for the first winner. Once that winner is chosen, they'll start a new contest for November with a new theme. That member will decide the winner of the November contest. The winner of the new contest will start a contest for December, and so on and so forth.
If anyone has any questions about how to handle this contest, please feel free to PM myself or any of the mods/admins on the site. The following should be copied in to the new contest thread:
Please post your photo for the [October 2013] POTM contest. This months theme is [aquascape]. Photos must be uploaded to your gallery and the bbcode link posted in the thread. A brief description of your photo may be included. One photo per member per month allowed, and photos MUST be taken by you. I will select the winner of the contest based on the quality of the photograph and how closely it relates to the theme this month . The winner will copy and paste this section to a new thread, where they will decide the theme of next months contest. Submissions will be accepted until the last day of the month. The winner will be announced on the first day of the next month. The new contest thread should be created no later than the 3rd day of the new month. I will send a PM to the winner, letting them know that they have won, along with a post in this thread. I will also send a PM to an admin or moderator, so that they can add the POTM Badge to your account. Good luck!
