Budgie of the Month July 2011
Welcome to a brand new month and a brand new challenge.
Our budgie's have been getting a workout lately haven't they? We had flying and then walking, I wonder what this month will bring?
If you are new to Talk Budgies, I invite you to join us and have some fun.
Let's start out by reviewing the rules and regulations.
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)
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.
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.
On July 22rd I will post a poll(s) for voting by the members of Talk Budgies and the winner will be announced on July 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.
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..
Marii has a really fun challenge for this month…..are you ready………………….
Budgie's Favorite Things!
We all know Oprah Winfrey has her favorite things, now we want to see the budgie version of the Oprah Show!
It can be a favorite toy, food, person or another bird. It could also be bathing or play time or a place where they love to hang out.
Sounds like fun? I hope you all can participate. Start sending me those photos.
Please, Please, Please, include your budgie's name along with the photo.
