Budgie of the Month Contest Rules.
Listed below are the rules and regulations for the Budgie of the Month contest. Please read them entirely to familiarize yourself with them.
If you have any questions regarding the rules and regulations, feel free to post your questions in the Budgie of the Month Forum .
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)
Post your own photo on the BOTM thread. The photo must meet the challenge requirement. You can only post one photo.
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.
