Postby Faster horses » Tue Oct 11, 2005 9:54 am

Send your entries in a PM to Chickshunt2 by Wednesday evening. She will
post them Wednesday evening/Thursday morning and you will have til
8 pm (MDT) to vote for your favorite. Winners will be announced Saturday
(usually :wink: ) and a new contest will start Sunday of each week.

We will try and take late entries, but be aware that late entries do not have
the same advantage as entries that come in on time.

Re: Photo Contest RULES and Catagory List

Faster horses wrote:Effective, October 26, please note rule change at the bottom.
Basically, we limited the entries to 10 for simplicity and to be fair; and you have until midnght MDT Fridays for voting. One new catagory has been added; B/W or B/W with spot color.

Here are the rules for the first Photo Contest.

1. The first topic will be 'Branding Pictures' and must contain a horse.
2. Photo receiving the most votes wins.
3. Only registered members of ranchers.net can vote.
4. One vote per person.
5. DEADINE: Entries must be pm'd to cert by midnght Wednesday night, October 19th, MDT. Catagory must be listed in subject line. First catagory will be Branding Pictures/horses. Second catagory will be Nature. Please do not send Nature pictures until the week of that catagory. (after Wed. Oct. 19th, the end of the first catagory).
6. Pictures will be posted on ranchers.net Photo Contest for viewing and voting as cert gets to them.
7. Voting ends Friday, October 26, 7 pm MDT. After Oct. 26, voters will have until MIDNIGHT on Fridays to cast their vote.
8. Winner announced on ranchers.net Photo Contest Saturday, October 22, and a new contest starts which will run from Wednesday, October 19th to midnight Wednesday, October 26. Photos will be posted on ranchers.net under the new catagory. The new catagory will be NATURE Photos. Voting will end Friday, Oct. 28th at 7 pm MDT.
9. One entry per person per catagory. Thank you.

After this first time, we will run the photo contests for a week at a time, unless we decide we should leave it at two weeks. Several of us thought we should give a little more time on the first contest so everyone has time to get a camera, scan photos, whatever.

These rules are subject to change, but cannot change in the middle of a contest. Rule Changes can only take place on Wednesdays, before the start of a new catagory. So watch this site for updates!!!

We have until Wednesday, October 19 to change the rules for "Nature" catagory. Then no rule changes until Wednesday, October 26.

I will contact Macon and see if he will delete the pictures after the voting each week.

Hope this all makes sense and we all enjoy the photos. Remember, this is to be FUN!!!!!!!!!

Catagories:
Dec.14-21: Black and white or B/W with spot color
Dec. 21-28: HORSES
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!
Dec. 28-Jan. 4: Dogs
Jan. 4-11 Holiday and New Years Photos from 2005-06
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
Jan. 11-18: Wildlife
Jan. 18-25: Anything Floral
Jan. 25-Feb. 1: ACTION (anything that shows action, horse, car, dog, motorcycle, etc.)
Feb. 1-8: Kids on horses

This is the way we will start out. Remember though: IT IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE! (I hate rules.) :wink:

RULE CHANGE: Contest starting Wed. Oct. 26, voters will have until Fridays at MIDNIGHT to vote.

Entries limited to first 10 each week. Catagories will start over so, if your picture didn't make it the first time, resubmit it to cert the next time the catagory comes around. This is to keep the voting SIMPLE.

This is for fun, remember? :wink:
