Default BOTM November 2011

Welcome one and all to our monthly photo contest.
Did you all have a nice Hallowe'en? Eat too much candy? Me too Are you ready for the final BOTM challenge for 2011?
Let's start 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 past 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.

This part is really important! Make sure you follow these rules!
All entries must be PMd 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.


Deadline:

The contest starts now and the last day for entries is November 20th.

Prizes:
The winner will receive 50 karma points !
A Desktop 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.

If you have any questions regarding the rules, please post them here.

Are you ready for Erika & Roger's challenge? Their challenge to you is......................................

"What is your Budgie Thinking?"


Please include a one sentence caption to post along with your photo.
It's a bit tougher this month, but I think this will be lots of fun So start snapping those photos and writing those captions. The contest starts now! Good luck to all.
