Results In - Photo of the Month Competition August 2011

Postby Dr DBW » Mon 01 Aug, 2011 12:58 pm

Theme: Fins

This month we are looking for photos of fins. Can be an entire fish, close up of a single fin, anything that you like, as long as it contains at least one fin.

As always the subject matter needs to be marine related, and that is not limited to livestock either.

Unfortunately, there are no prizes for this current competition (yet?!), you just get bragging rights.

Rules
  1. Each person may submit up to two photos by uploading the image(s) in the appropriate RTAW Gallery album - 2011 August
  2. Each image must be 800x600 or less with the minimum of editing (normal post processing if you are using RAW). The aim is to display the subject matter as realistically as possible. Please also have on hand a full resolution copy of the submitted images on hand, as the winning images are made available as wallpapers for fellow users.
  3. No matting or framing on the images. If you add a signature / copyright mark please keep them to as small and inconspicuous as possible (too large and they become distracting).
  4. The photo must be your photo, but it can be from your tank, another person's tank, an aquarium or the ocean itself. But most importantly it must be your photo. The photographers retain all copyright to their submitted images whether they win or not however it is a condition of entry that you agree to allow MASA to use your image within the RTAW domain, and allow MASA and other RTAW members to download your image as a wallpaper for personal use only.
  5. The submitted photographs must be taken within the past 6 months, and submitted to the thread by no later than 11:59pm on the last day of that month. Photos must not have been submitted to the RTAW Monthly Photo Competition on a previous occasion.
  6. All entries will be looked at for composition, content, adherence to the topic as well as artistic appeal, technical and aesthetic qualities.
  7. Please feel free to comment in this thread. After completion of the competition and voting, comments are also enabled on the photo pages.
  8. If people would like to add the specifications of their photo's feel free to do so but it is not a requirement.
  9. Overseas entrants are welcome to participate but due to sponsorship arrangements we currently are not in a position to ship prizes internationally. Overseas entrants can still gain recognition of winning such events albeit without any prize award.
  10. Prize must be claimed by winner within 1 month of winner being announced.

Entries close on the 31st of August at 11:59pm (midnight), when voting them opens for all users for a period of 7 days. The winner, and scores as voted by users, is then released on the 8th of September.

Enter your photos HERE!

Good luck and happy snapping!

Let the Comp begin!

Time to Vote!!!

Postby Dr DBW » Fri 02 Sep, 2011 10:49 am

Now it is time to vote for the winner of the photo of the month competition for August 2011.

To vote, got to the gallery at gallery/album.php?album_id=434 click on the image name you want to vote for and pick your score out of 0 to 10, with 10 being an awesome photo, this must win. You can vote for as many photos as you like, and it is actually best if you do vote for all of them in some manner as it sets up a good ranking system. Once you have voted for one image, you can either go back to the gallery / index for the competition and click on the next image name, or click on the thumbnail image of the next image on the side of the browser window.

If you like, the first image entered is at gallery/image_page.php?album_id=434&image_id=1585&sk=t&sd=d&st=0 go there, vote for it, then click on the thumbnail on the left for the next entry, then work your way through all the entries.

Voting is open until Thursday the 8th of September.
