Photo Competition Comments

Photo Competition Comments


Postby RicKamila » Mon Jan 28, 2013 12:55 am

I have decided that instead of seperate threads for comments, this will be the official thread for commenting on all upcoming competitions.

Below you see the new list of rules applicable from Photo Competition #13. This will be posted at the start of every competition with the entry dates posted underneath. (I will re-do the font so it is easier to read from Competition #13. The font looked better in Paint, trust me!! Also noticed a missing word too :roll:).

Please make sure you are familiar with the rules. You should all know by now that we run a month behind with this competition and that the date and location must be included in your entry :wink:

All rules still stand from the last 12 competitions, however I have added one new rule.

I think that it is only fair that if you enter the competition, then you have to cast votes. If you enter, but don't vote then I will apply a -10 point deduction on your score. If you will be away when voting is open (between 1030pm on the 15th of each month and 1030pm on the 21st of each month) then please PM me your votes, even if competition is still running.

All entries and voting scores are kept on an Excel spreadsheet. Entrants will be highlighted red once they have cast their top 3 votes. (Its actually easier to run this competition than you think :lol:)

And finally, as you are most probably aware, I am also looking into getting a calendar made featuring the winning photos of the past 12 months. I should know by mid-year if its going to be able to be done and what price we would be looking at. Proceeds would go to MRT. This is all to be confirmed though.

Paul, do you have any issues with the use of the WH logo in the rules above, if you do, I will be more than happy to just replace it with the words walkhighlands.

Correction - Photo entry period should say January 1st TO January 31st, not January 1st and January 31st :roll:
