photo contest rules
The photo contests are back! Every month we will have a contest where you (the members) can submit photos you feel are the "cream of the crop". You can post your pictures in each thread found in our photography/showoff forum. Please do not post comments on the pictures. The threads are for pictures only.
We will then run a 1 week poll where you and your fellow members can vote on which photo you feel is the best of the best. The threads will be converted to a poll one week before the end of the month. To be considered for the contest please read the rules to this contest. If you have both fresh and saltwater tanks you are permitted to post 1 photo in each contest per month.
For the Off Topic (OT) contest the rules will be basically the same with the exception that the submissions must be of things NOT in your tanks.
-All photos must be original photos taken by you or photos of your tank. (please do not submit photos of another persons tank unless you have gotten written permission from them to do so. If you do please include this written permission with your submittal)
-All photos must be submitted in .jpg format and should be limited in size to 800 x 600 or 600 x 800 depending on layout and a file size no larger than 250KB.
-All submissions should include the common name and scientific name of the subject contained within the frame.
-All submissions should also include helpful information relating to the background of the subject, care requirements, etc.
-Only 1 photo submission per month per member.
-No photo editing other than resizing is permitted. __________________
