Photo of the Month Competition September 2011 RESULTS IN

Postby Dr DBW » Fri 09 Sep, 2011 1:09 pm

Theme: Tentacles

This month we are looking for photos of tentacles. Can be an entire coral / anemone, close up of a single tentacle, anything that you like, may be even something that looks like a tentacle, as long as it contains at least one or more tentacles.

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 September
  2. Each image must be 1024x1024 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 gallery 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 topic. 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 30th of September at 11:59pm (midnight), when voting then opens for all registered users for a period of 7 days. The winner, and scores as voted by the users, is then released on the 8th of October.

Enter your photos HERE!

Good luck and happy snapping!

Let the Competition begin!
