Default Budgie of the Month June 2011

Budgie of the Month June 2011

Welcome to a brand new month and a brand new challenge! June marks the one year anniversary of the Budgie of the Month competition. I think it has been very successful over the past 12 months.
We have had amazing photos and lots of laughs haven’t we?
If you are new to Talk Budgies, I invite you to join our monthly photo competition. It is a great way to meet other members, while having some fun.
In celebration of our one year anniversary, this month’s winner will receive 100 karma points!
Before I announce this month’s challenge, let’s start by reviewing the rules and regulations.

I want to start by reminding all contestants to please include your budgie’s name and your choice for next month’s challenge along with your photo.

Rules and Regulations:

Each month a photo challenge will be presented. All you have to do is simply snap a photo of your budgie(s) matching the challenge theme of the month.
Please submit a recent photo. (taken within the last 6 months)

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 Photoshopping.
Photos need not be staged. Props are not necessary. A spontaneous photo is best. If your budgie(s) happens to land on something such as a stuffed toy or another object and you think the photo would suit the competition it will be allowed.

No enhancements such as glitter writing, sparkles etc.
The only enhancement you are allowed to do is photo cropping. Water marks are allowed
Only one entry is allowed per member.
Staff members are welcomed to participate.



Please note that once you send in your entry it is final. You will not be able to substitute it for another photo.

Deadline

The contest opens today and I will accept entries until June 24th at 10:00h Eastern Standard Time.
On June 24th I will post a poll(s) for voting by the members of Talk Budgies and the winner will be announced on June 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.

Prizes


The winner will receive a special anniversary edition 100 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.
The winner also has the honor of picking the next month's challenge as well as automatically being entered into the Budgie of the Year competition which will take place in December.

Kozka has an interesting challenge for this month…..are you ready…………………..


The challenge is……………………


Budgie’s Walking!



Now that we had flying budgie’s we want to see walking budgies. This can be budgie’s walking on a floor, playgym, etc. Two places my budgie likes to walk on are the top of my TV and my bed.
How can we tell if the budgie is walking and not just standing still you ask? Good question.
Try to get a shot of one foot ahead of the other I guess. Let’s have some fun with this one. I know you all can do it. You never fail to surprise me with the creativity you bring to your photos. Good luck!

Okay. Sometimes budgies will take a walk on the strangest things. I can't wait to see where everybody's budgie like to stroll.

Yes, in fact that is a good idea to show that the budgie is walking. As long as the object the budgie is stepping onto is a safe one, it is allowed
