    This competition runs each month; during the month members are able to nominate others photos (in this thread) for candidates for Photo of the Month. At the end of each month a poll is made and members then vote from the selection to find out who is the Photographer of the Month.


    I'm also glad to say that we also have a range of prizes, offered up by the site admin. Winners of Photo of the Month will get:
    Featured on the Front page of the site for the duration of the next month.
    Free membership of the forums for 12 months.
    And $25!

    RULES:

    1) You may nominate up to THREE photos, no more.

    2) Please include the name of the photo and the name of the photographer, in addition post a direct link to the thread where the photo was originally posted.... you can't nominate yourself.

    3) You may nominate any photo posted during the month of May 2012 in the galleries. Photo must have been taken by the poster.

    4) If someone else has already nominated a photo, please do not nominate it again. It makes it very confusing when it's time to make the voting thread. If a photo is nominated twice, your post may be edited or deleted.

    5) The same person can only receive the POTM prize for winning, twice in a 6 month period. This person can still win POTM, but the not the prize repeatedly, though they will still get front page display.

    How to nominate: Just right click the picture you'd like to nominate..... go to 'properties' and paste the location into the image icon on this thread as follows:

    [ img ] paste url here [ /img]

    done without the spaces. Then just add the name of the photographer, the title of the photo they gave it (if given, or thread title name) and then a link to the thread where it was posted.



    So don't hold back, nominate your 3 choices for the month :)

    mjhoward - Unfortunately I've had to remove your nomination because the photo was not posted in May, but in April. One can always check the post date of a thread by looking at the top left side of a post above the posters name and the date will be displayed there.

    Ahh terribly sorry, the rules are copy-paste month to month and I neglected to change the month listed in the rules. When in doubt the thread title (which is correct) would stand above the rules. I've now changed the post to avoid confusion :)

    Please read the rules - you cannot nominate your own photographs.

    I am a little confused...sorry I am new... can I post an image of my own, or do I post another's image? And does it have to have been posted in a thread already? Or can I upload it directly here (which obviously only applies if we are submitting our own images) THANKS

    tmjjk, you're not allowed to nominate your own works. You can only post photos here which are the works of others posted in the forums during the month (current month being May). You can check the post date by looking in the top corner of a post, just above a persons name. Provided the post with the photo is posted during the month it can be nominated.

    If you nominate you just have to copy the image into the thread here, link to the thread that it was posted in and also post in that thread that you've nominated the photo.

    Neat choice Tarayn - could you also put a link to the thread into your post (just click the edit post button under the post to chance the content). Just helps if we can link back to the original thread for people who want to compliment the original photographer on their work.
