Welcome to a brand new month and a brand new competition!
Can you believe that summer is almost over? August was our best month yet for this contest and I hope we have even more fun this month.
Let's start out by reviewing the rules and regulations.
Rules and Regulations
Each month a theme will be presented. All you have to do is simply snap a photo of your budgie(s) matching the theme of the month.
Please submit a recent photo.
Exception: I have received requests from members asking if they can enter photos of their budgies who have passed away. I have decided to make an exception to the recent photo rule in these cases. I will allow older photos of departed budgies.
The photo must be of a budgie(s); other birds are allowed to be in the photo but make sure the focus of your shot is on the budgie(s)
This is a no-frills photo competition.
No enhancements such as glitter writing, sparkles etc.
The only enhancement you are allowed to do is photo cropping.
Only one entry is allowed per member.
Staff members are allowed to participate.
Please note that once you send in your entry it is final. You will not be allowed to subsitute it for another photo.
The contest opens today and I will accept entries until September 18th at noon.
On September 18th I will post a poll(s) for voting by the members of Talk Budgies and the winner will be announced on September 30th.
All entries must be PM’d to me for posting. Do not post your own photo. Please include your budgie(s) names when you send me the entry, also let me know what you think the next month's challenge should be.
The winner will receive 50 karma points!
A desktop calendar wallpaper, featuring the winner will also be awarded. This wallpaper will be made available in different sizes for downloading by everyone.
